The Chief Iron Cloud was a Germanicus-class starship commissioned by and built over Bonaparte. A sister ship to the Queen Maria Sophia, it occasionally pulled duty as the flagship of Bonaparte’s monarch, Edward at the time of christening.
In 434 IE, the Chief Iron Cloud rushed to Tian to assist in the rapid pacification of Aphrodite during the final radical Cubist uprising. While Edward attempted to commandeer the ship as monarch of the core world, the ship ultimately fell under overall command of Admiral Eileen Burke. It did, however, serve as a platform for Navy Special Forces Captain Mitsuko Yamato in the final phase of her operation against Gerard Kurz's terrorist group.
