The ARMD Class vessels were designed as space carriers for variable fighters and other U.N.S. spacecraft. Both ARMD-01 and ARMD-02 were destroyed in the first battle of Space War I on February 7, 2009. However, both vessels engaged in combat with the Zentradi fleet and proved quite successful at using anti-ship reaction warheads to destroy several large Zentradi warships.
