Before long, the Loyalists will haunt the nightmares of the servants of both the Emperor and the High King!

- Ramannis Le Rambo

The Loyalist Crusaders, also called the Loyalist Fleet, referred to the various spacecraft operated jointly by the Rambo Loyalist in their struggle against the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus and Rambo Nation under rule of High King Rambert Ramveral. Although minuscule in size compared to either the Imperial or Rambo Navy, the fleet proved to be a thorn in the Empire's side throughout the Second Great Cyrannus War.

HistoryEdit

Early CampaignsEdit

LoyalistCarrierSupport

The Dutch dissidents join the Ensemble fleet
17 may 21 AQF

The early Loyalist fleet was launched from Lord Ramannis Le Rambo's stronghold at Ramar Shadda when he escaped the blockade raised by High King Rambert Ramveral. With 5 CS14 class corvettes and a single modified Munificent-class he fled his besieged planet in hopes to raise a resistance. Supported by his Tiger-class starfighter corps the early Loyalist fleet began harassing Imperial supply lines and eventually revealed itself when they aided the Creeper Cabel. Supporting the larger Cyrandia Resistance they joined forces during the Battle of Amber. In february 21 AQF, during Struggle of being a Half-Elf-storyline the Loyalist fleet expanded and with aid of the dissident forces of the Kingdom of the Netherlands began forming a severe threat as its expended its ranks with ships and ground forces.

During the Valour of the Resistance-storyline the fleet managed to acquire two Dreadnought-class command destroyers after a team led by Idris Vanguinar and Yvenne Thalyssaera disabled the Imperial forces at Concor Refueling Depot. At the 12th of May 21 AQF, the command escort of the Loyalist One was wiped out when Raptor Squadron attacked them at Ozdudrahk. Lord Ramannis narrowly managed to escape at the expense of the entire CS14-class blockade runners. Five days later, at the 17th the crippled Loyalist One managed to rendezvous with the entire Ensemble at Purpura Nebula where they decided to make their next move.

Dawn of DivinaEdit

DawnofDivina01Prologue

The Loyalists engage Imperial forces in orbit of Isle Blue

As the Loyalist's were training their forces, Loyalist Command did decide to send relieve aid to extract Laoi Cretacea from the Rambo prison planet Pauvenris during the Precipe-events. Later on in the war, Lord Ramannis commanded a Loyalist task force in the battle of the Rambo Capital to liberate Rambo Nation from the growing insanity of High King Rambert Ramveral in the Umbra du Elen'nanthien-storyline. Sadly however after the death of the king who turned out to be under the influence of the Corruptus the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus took advantage of the situation and overrun the New Republic/Resistance forces in orbit and forced them to withdraw. To his shock and horror, Rambo Nation fell and was dissolved by the Empire, ending the once proud and honorable nation. Returning to the Space in Between, Ramannis informed his fellow Loyalists whos morale was broken. The loss of Rambo Nation caused friction between the Loyalists and the rest of the Cyrandia Resistance as well.

Month later, the Ensemble attack the Imperial forces stationed at Isle Blue.

PersonnelEdit

The Loyalist fleet and its activities were overseen by Loyalist Command, who managed the logistical and strategic matters of the Loyalitsts efforts against the Empire and Rambo Nation under Ramveral. Schout bij Nacht Tasman serves as the admiral of the fleet. As an all volunteer military, recruists could come and go as they please, hailing from any of the species. Many amongst the fleet have a great sense of camaraderie and face impracticality of returning to their home systems. With the fleet constantly moving, it could take weeks for a separated pilot or ship to rejoin the main fleet, though this tactic of avoidance comes at a price. Due to the logistics being difficult maintaince and resupply is one of the greatest challenges for the Loyalist fleet besides facing the Empire in combat.

Curagae Squadron
Curagae Squadron, also known as the Curagae Humanitarian Fleet is a squadron with an unique purpose. The squadron supports the Loyalists with medical and humanitarian aid for those in need, whether they are part of the Resistance, neutral people or their opponents. The unique nature of the squadron allows it to operate in plain sight of Imperial authorities as officially the Humanitarian Fleet is given directions by its main benefiter and initiator, the young diplomat Riyo Apanoida who is unaware that its commander, Bob Chioaik uses the fleet for the Loyalist benefits as well.
