Origins and design notes
These ships were designed to transport larger contingents of Royal Manticoran Marines than the standard battalion-sized units that could be found on ships-of-the-wall and battlecruisers.
Along with the Guadalcanal class, this class was to be replaced with an unnamed class of attack transports, known only as LPX (Attack Transport, Experimental), which was still in the state of design study as of 1920 PD. (Companion)
Known ships of the class
- The class was named for the Battle of Rorke's Drift duing the Zulu War in the Old Earth nation of South Africa during the late 19th Century CE.
