The Ralaxath-class Heavy Destroyer is a fictional warship that appears in the Wing Commander universe. It appears only in Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger.


The Ralaxath-class Heavy Destroyer is a warship in the service of the brutal Kilrathi Empire. These ships are the successors to the smaller Ralarrad-class Light Destroyers, and are significantly larger and more powerful. However, unlike the Ralarrad, they cannot carry fighters. Their history is very brief as these ships were only first deployed during the final year of the Kilrathi War in 2669. Colonel Christopher Blair first encountered these fearsome vessels when the Terran Confederation invaded the Freya System in preparation for their attack on Kilrah. By then, the Kilrathi War was in its final stages. Several of these vessels were stationed in the Freya and Kilrah Systems, with the Kilrah vessels supposedly serving as planetary defenses. Presumably, several of these ships joined the Kilrathi Grand Armada in order to attack Earth in the final strike against the Terran Confederation. However, they were destroyed when Colonel Blair destroyed Kilrah via the Temblor Bomb.

Given that they are still relatively new ships, surviving Ralaxaths were probably fitted for peacetime service and are still serving the Kilrathi Assembly of Clans. No ship of this class is known by its appropriate name, and their major feats are unknown.
