"Here's the latest. Tyrargo is overrun with Aliens, and it's gonna be tough going."
―The Commander to Anderson (from Aliens versus Predator)

The USS Tyrargo was a Conestoga-class troop transport ship in service with the United States Colonial Marine Corps. It was stationed above Acheron (LV-426) and succumbed to a massive Xenomorph infestation.


The USS Tyrargo was stationed alongside USS Odobenus station and served as protection for the space station and the Weyland-Yutani research facility on the moon. It also served as a transit ship to convoy Xenomorphs and Xenoborgs from Odobenus.

In 2189, after an outbreak occurred on both LV-426 and Odobenus, a group of Yautja was involved and one of them boarded the ship to hunt Xenoborgs. However the inability of the crew to eliminate the Predator caused a containment failure allowing Xenomorphs to invade the ship and forcing the remaining crew to evacuate.

When Private Anderson arrived on the ship after fleeing from Odobenus, only to find that the ship was also infested. After fighting his way through the ship, killing a Predator, several Praetorians, a Predalien and a multitude of Drones, Weyland-Yutani elected to leave Anderson to die on the Tyrargo, thanking him for his services. However, Anderson's commander opened an escape route for him, allowing him to flee to a large hangar at the bottom of the ship where he faced the Xenomorph Queen. After expelling the Queen into space, Anderson's fate (and that of the Tyrargo itself) is not known.


  • While the writing is indistinct, the Tyrargo appears to have the word "SULACO" written on its side. This is possibly a result of Rebellion recycling assets from a previous game.
