|Gilgamesh-Class Destroyer Target Designation, circa 2665|
The Gilgamesh was a venerable class of warships that saw much action throughout the majority of the Terran-Kilrathi War. It was built with the same purpose as most other destroyers; as fast, heavily-armored warships suited for fleet carrier escort and offensive operations against Kilrathi warships. Gilgamesh destroyers were designed to operate effectively on their own on the battlefield, and have proven their effectiveness against the Kilrathi invaders.
The Gilgamesh is similar in role to the Exeter-Class Destroyer. The Gilgamesh saw much action during the Enigma Sector Campaign, which saw the loss of several such warships against the Kilrathi. Among the Gilgamesh-Class destroyers lost in battle was the TCS William Tell, escorting the TCS Concordia.
