Ypres is the name for two Terran Federation Starships.

The first Ypres was a ship present during the Invasion of Klendathu. It was destroyed in a collision with the Valley Forge in orbit over Klendathu.

After Operation Royalty, another ship was built that bore the name Ypres. This Starship was commissioned and stationed at Sanctuary along with the new Ypres after the Operation Bughouse. It is a large ship, like the Tours.
