The MCRN Scirocco is an unknown class ship in the Martian Congressional Republic Navy. It destroyed Phoebe Station to prevent earth reaching it first.
The Scirocco was dispatched by MCRN Command to investigate the research station on Phoebe, the same mission that the Donnager had been returning from when it was destroyed by Protogen's stealth ships.
The Scriocco was heavily damaged in orbit over Ganymede by United Nations Navy forces during the Ganymede Incident. Much of its crew, including its CO (Commanding Officer) , Lieutenant Sutton, were killed.
- This ship may appear in the books, but it was not given a name.
- By definition, Scirocco is a hot wind, often dusty or rainy, blowing from North Africa across the Mediterranean to southern Europe.
