Among other things this design philosophy meant these missile-heavy vessels had more tractors on a ton-for-ton basis than any other ship type in the Republican order of battle. So when missile pods made a comeback during the First Haven-Manticore War battleships had the advantage that they could tractor as many as eleven pods inside their wedge, more than most superdreadnoughts of the time.

The Triumphant-class battleships were designed to replace the Fouchart class as general purpose workhorses meant primarily for covering rear areas against raiding squadrons of cruisers or battlecruisers and for keeping restive systems from asserting their independence. (HH5)
Class Historical Notes
During the First Havenite-Manticoran War, the Triumphants were also used in frontline duties with mixed success. A complete failure at the Fourth Battle of Yeltsin's Star, they performed much better during Operation Icarus.
