The Crobuzon was a Pharos-class Super-Heavy Assault Carrier in service with the Cosmonautic Armada of Vostok. It was one of the largest ships in the fleet and Hannibal Barca's vehicle of choice, serving as his flagship in the Blue Fleet.
It led the CAV expedition to Earth to find the Gem. Along with the rest of the fleet, it was ambushed by the Clone Guild. Despite surviving for most of the battle, its communications were damaged and it was shot down in Earth's orbit by the Coruscanti Navy for failing to respond to its hail, shortly after receiving survivors from the Miocene Arrow. It was well-built enough for most of the ship to survive reentry; the wreckage crashed into the ocean, and the survivors escaped in a purpose-built submarine.
