Name: Thorsten class
Type: Battleship
Affiliation: RMN logo small boxcolored Star Kingdom of Manticore
Date Introduced: 16th Century PD

The Thorsten class was a class of battleships built and used by the Royal Manticoran Navy.

The class was originally named the Manticore class, but was renamed when the RMN chose to use the designation for its Manticore class superdreadnoughts. Additionally, the RMN rechristened the first three units of the class for moons in the Manticore System in order to free the names of the planets for superdreadnoughts.

In the 16th Century PD, sixteen of these vessels were locally built on the basis of a licensed Solarian design following the survey of the Manticoran Wormhole Junction. Eleven of the class remained in commission in 1844 PD, forming the then-core of the wall of battle together with an equal number of Ad Astra-class dreadnoughts.

In 1672 PD, Queen Adrienne dispatched a task group consisting of a battleship squadron and two divisions of Ad Astra class dreadnoughts to the Silesian Confederacy following the Battle of Carson, bringing about the fall of a piracy-supporting Silesian government. (Companion)
