2nd (Gryphon) Fleet

The Royal Manticoran Navy

Welcome to The Second Naval District
&
Gryphon Fleet

Second Fleet was established in 2011 through Naval Directive 11FB-03, which appointed Antonio Lopes to the position of Commanding Officer of Second Fleet and Second Naval District and brevetted him to the rank of Rear Admiral of the Red.

Operations commenced on 30 August, 2011 with the commissioning of the fleet’s first ship, HMS Merlin (CA-270) in Minneapolis, founded and commanded by then – Captain j.g. John Neitz. 30 August is still observed annually as “Gryphon Fleet Day,” and HMS Merlin bears the title “First in Second Fleet.”

John Neitz relieved Admiral Lopes in August, 2014; and retained fleet command until handing it off on June 1, 2019. In that time, Gryphon Fleet saw explosive growth, and truly earned the designation ‘Second to None’.

Gryphon Fleet is currently commanded by Rear Admiral of the Red Geoffrey Strayer, and has expanded to 28 hyper-capable ships, and 5 LACs.
