The G.F.S. Tyr, an Anhur-class patrol ship, docked on Aether.

The Anhur-class patrol ship, used by the Galactic Federation Marine Corps, is a patrol/troop transport warship of a relatively small size. The ship has two large winglike apertures mounted on the side of the main body of the ship. The vessel's wings swivel upward for landing and takeoff. A similar model appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, called the Aries-class transport.


It carries four directed-energy weapons capable of quickly disabling a small Space Pirate frigate or supply ship as done by the G.F.S. Tyr above planet Aether. Two of these weapons are mounted at the tip of the vessel's "wings". They fire bright red energy pulses and are capable of a rapid rate of fire.


The interior of a ship of Anhur-class has many seats for passengers. In the cockpit there are two seats, one for the Pilot and Co-Pilot. A Screen display shows the outside of the ship. At the back of the ship is a Map Station, probably used for the creation of new maps for uncharted areas.

Logbook entry


The Anhur-class is the perfect example of a warship, designed for control and defense of planetary systems. Ships of this class, added successively, will replace the obsolete Aries class as the primary troop transport of the Federation. The Anhur is faster and uses shield systems instead of the separate protective armor of the Aries type. The armament, however, is comparable to the older vessels. Some crews have complained about unreliable circuitry systems in the Anhur ships, but the GF Research and Development Division assures the Admiralty that these problems will be resolved soon.

  • In early Egyptian mythology, Anhur (also spelled Onuris, Onouris, An-Her, Anhuret, Han-Her, Inhert) was originally a foreign god of war, who started being worshipped in the Egyptian area of Abydos, and particularly in Thinis, during the 11th dynasty. Myths told that he had brought his wife, Menhit, who was his female counterpart, from Nubia, and his name reflects this—it means (one who) leads back the distant one.
