Hey .. I want to try and do a few things (1 of which is make a crossword word bank with Honorverse/TRMN definitions) ... what are the various Ship Prefixes and the Navies they belong to?

Preferably also with what the designation actually means... :)

Like:

HMS - Royal Manticoran Navy (Her Majesty's Service)
GNS - Grayson Space Navy (Grayson Naval Service)

etc...

Thank You :)

HMS = Her Majesty’s Ship (Royal Manticoran Navy)
GNS = Grayson Naval Ship (Grayson Space Navy)
RHNS = Republic *of* Haven Naval Ship (Republic of Haven Navy)
PNS = People’s Naval Ship (People’s Republic of Haven Navy)
IANS = Imperial Andermani Naval Ship (Imperial Andermani Navy - for ship ID with allies)
SMS= whatever that means in German (Imperial Andermani Navy internal designation)

Also SLNS=Solarian League Naval Ship

and I think the Sillies use CNS for Confederation Naval Ship, but I'd need to double check that.

All the little 'navies' in the expanse between the Manticoran Empire and the Anderman Empire have their own designations for their ships. I believe that a number of them were mentioned in the volume concerning Honor's second visit to the Andermani home world.
