|Overlord class Battleship|
Battleship Concord led the attack against the Munster Research Station in 818 A.S., despite stiff opposition from the Westphalia and her battlegroup. The ship managed to complete its mission - that is to recover a large station component and then withdraw, but not without losing most of it's supporting fleet. The ship also sustained heavy damage, with over a hundred crew lost when her lower decks decompressed. Her withdrawal was covered by the Whitefield, and she was taken to the Norfolk Shipyard for extensive repairs.
While the ship is again fully operational, the same cannot be said for her crew. Many of the survivors of the "Battle for Munster" suffer from shellshock and combat traumas, and were honorably discharged following the operation. Due to this, a good portion of the Concord - and her accompanying battlegroup - are now staffed by green officers fresh from West Point.
Even though the Concord's supporting fleet never returned to its full strength, the ship was tasked to enter the recently completed Ageira Supergate and set up position in Poole to defend the military convoys from potential unlawful attacks. Despite her fresh crew and diminished battlegroup, the Concord's command staff are battle hardened veterans of the Rheinland War, and the ship is slated to enter the New London theater once the second wave of reinforcements consisting of the Whitefield and Fairmont arrive from Alberta.
