This ship was hidden near Mars at the opening stages of the Free Navy Conflict where it was discovered by Alex Kamal and Bobbie Draper onboard the Razorback. Having been spotted, the Andreas Hofer fired a torpedo at the Razorback. The racing ship was able to engage its epstein drive and flee at high speed towards an MCRN fleet escorting the Prime Minister. The MCRN fleet's escort moved to engage the Andreas Hofer and the other ships that accompanied it. However, this was a deliberate attempt by the Free Navy to draw off the escort away from the ship containing the Prime Minister.
