Hyperion Fleet [M37]


The Hyperion Front Purges Fleet was intended to carry Imperial Forces deep into the Rimwards flank of the Scallop stars, as part of M37 Scallop Star Purges. The much-feared Admiral Kars was Lord Commander Ultima Abattol's second choice for command, after High Admiral Leston-Zmyth was found dead in suspicious circumstances. 


Admiral Kars


Since the Hyperion Front extended furthest from the rallying point of Port Cassian, the Hyperion Front Fleet benefitted from the cream of the Antona Sectorial Fleet both in terms of the quality of the ships assigned to it, and the Captains and crews. The Hyperion Front Purges Fleet included most of the craft that had taken part in the earlier Eorta Crusade, which meant their Captains were familiar with the stellar geography and dangers of the Scallop Stars.



    Emboldened text marks their involvement in particular campaigns, along with the year.



    Famous ships of the fleet

    • Admiral Kars transferred his flag from his accustomed Retribution-class battleship Viscera to the Apocalypse-class battleship Terror in Carmine.
    • The Luna-class Cruiser, Buck's Eye, was newly-commissioned and noted as the first ship to leave its moorings, marking the beginning of the Purges.
    • The Oberon-class ship, Quality, was unusual in transporting the Rodian void warriors, veterans of the Eorta crusade, and made good on its name in the first skirmishes of the Silent War.


    Regiments of the Hyperion Front

    The Hyperion Front included a number of regiments drawn from across and outside of the Antona Australis sector, owing to the relative ease of lines of communication from the Rimwards Exit of the Hyperion Warp Corridor. The Front also contained numerous specialised and oversized regiments owing to its privileged position as the initial drive. The Lord Commander Ultima Abattol wanted the Fleet able to prevent the orks pushing rimwards, so Kars needed regiments that could hold position without immediate support.

    Adeptus Mechanicus allies of the Hyperion Front

    Abattol's masterful negotiations ensured no offence was caused when the Mechanicus forces pledged to the Hyperion Front were mostly moved to support the central Ambitine Front Purge Fleet. The Lord Commander made the decision owing to the speed at which the Fleet was expected to move and respond; and he wanted Kars forces to remain as nimble as they could – which necessitated few lumbering Legio Transports and the inevitable delays of dealing with the allied Mechanicus.
