The Myrkul class is part of Bryn Shander's Year 00 Rearmament Plan, and is designed to replace the aging Starburst class battleships and Inverse class dreadnoughts. Though less than half the size of the Inverse class dreadnought, the Myrkul class is significantly more powerful than the larger ship, and is the most powerful ship ever designed in Bryn Shander.

As the most powerful ships in the fleet, the Myrkul will be used as the primary counter to other powerful ships such as Auman's Gorgon class, Kajal's Titan class, and Zepplin Manufacturers Incorporated's Management Buyout and Hammer Of The Economy class vessels.

Twelve vessels of the class have been completed so far, and it is likely that orders for more will be submitted. The design has been exported to New Haven
