Ship history

The Psamptik was the command ship of the 13th Vasudan Battle group, assigned to assist GTVA forces in the Deneb system against the NTF Rebels. The deployment of the Psamptik and the chase-away of the NTF Iceni eventually caused the NTF to weaken at Deneb. The pilots of the Psamtik spotted the SJ Sathanas for the very first time and retreated back to Gamma Draconis. As Allied command ordered, the Psamtik's fighter wings saw the Knossos to be destroyed with Meson bombs, but the Shivan juggernaut arrived through the portal. It was the Psamtik that deployed fighters and bombers who deactivated the main beam cannons on the Sathanas and ensured the destruction of the Sathanas by the beams of the GTVA Colossus. The Psamtik took part in none of these missions, only its fighters.

After this victory, the primary focus of the Psamtik was to find Admiral Aken Bosch and his command frigate, the NTF Iceni. During this search, they started pursuing a Shivan Azreal-class transport until it made the jump, using a second Knossos subspace portal.

The Psamtik started examining the portal, for its doom. Minutes after it started, a second Sathanas vessel jumped in and vaporized the Psamptik, killing Admiral Khaffe and the entire crew.
