Only the Ares, and Olympia survived the war. Both vessel was refiited during the war removing their advance technology-include their FTL drive. Ironically this may had been what save the two warships. The Ares and Olympia stay close to Picon for the entire war.
After war was over, and the perfect of the FTL drive that didn't required retactable flight pods both Ares and Oympia was refitted again and reclassify as Battlestar.
Both vessel serviced till the Caprica Class Light Battlestar cam into serviced. Where as about, Ares was brought up to the same level as the Olympia. Both vessel had armament removed and Olympia had armor removed. Both vessel became the Ares Class Training Ship.
