Fleet Flotillas/Ships

Taking Shield header

Fleet is by far the largest of the services comprising Albion’s Defence Forces: nine flotillas, each headed by a dreadnought, the biggest military spaceships Albion has ever developed. Each flotilla nominally represents one of Albion’s nine provinces.

Here, ships and personnel that are named at some point in the Shield series, are listed within their Flotilla
