The Norse served it's first 5 years as the Flagship for the Nordic Nations. It conducted resupply and defense missions but saw little combat. It spent six months in 2018 stationed at Atlantis and in 2020 when in for it's five year overhaul, following the commissioning of the NOV Longship which took it's place as Flagship.
In 2023 it was assigned to the 2nd Joint Tactical Strike Group for carrier and battlecruiser duties, but following the dissolution of the unit it is pending reassignment. It is also used as a training ship for Nordic crew to be assigned to new vessels.
The name comes Norse mythology, the mythology and folklore comon to the Scandiniva and the Nordic Countries. It also references Norsemen, the name of the Scandinavian people before the Christianization of Scandinavia. As well West Norse (including Norwegian, Faroese, and Icelandic), East Norse (indlucing Danish and Swedish) and Old Norse are lanaguge groups common to the Nordic naitons.
Like the insignia of all Nordic vessels the Norse's badge is simply, a rounded shield filled by a tri-tonal Nordic cross (an aspect common to the flags of the Nordic countries). It is the same dark blue as the central cross of the Flag of Iceland overlain with the ships name.
