               The Heinkel class was built as a mass produced missile-frigate for the depleted Ceres Regency navy after their crushing defeat at the Vesta Atlas Gap during the 1st Interplanetary War. Most of the Richtoven class destroyers of the Regency had been badly damaged or destroyed during that battle and the Regency needed a new ship quickly. The Heinkel was their answer. A simple design that could transport battle robots to and from combat, with adequate anti-ship weapons, armor and speed, the Heinkel filled the role of stop-gap destroyer-frigate and destroyer-leader until the newer Zerstorer class destroyer was put into mass production (a Richtoven upgrade). Heinkels served with the Ceres Regency until the creation of the Grand Duchy of Ceres in the early 2080s, by 2085 (and the transition of the Duchy into the Principality of Altair in the Altair star system) the Heinkel was the most numerous of the Ceres designed ships in their Kosmo Kriegsmarine.

The ship is from the Science Fiction Novel "Nexus Arcana: The Stygian Conspiracy":
