The Salamis was a Salamis-class cruiser in service with the Earth Federal Space Force. The Salamis was launched in October of UC 0070.

In UC0079, the Salamis docked with Luna II. The Salamis escorted the White Base to Earth. Lieutenant Teniente Reed took a shuttle to guide the White Base down to Earth, when a Musai-class light cruiser under the command of Char Aznable attacked. The Salamis pulled away and left. (Escape from Luna II).

Nomenclature

Named after the Battle Of Salamis Bay where the Greek fleet dealt a heavy defeat to the Persian one which along with the Battle Of Thermoplyae convinced the Persians to rely on smaller operations. Eventually they left Greece entirely.
