(Whilst the storefront is very much under construction at the moment, fell free to order products as they appear. This will be updated a lot, until I am happy that it is completed. Until then, please forgive me for the very WiP condition of it. Thanks, and enjoy!)


An amalgamation of six of the Most Serene Republic's most successful shipbuilding companies, Royal Mian began life as a single company in early 2004. Since then, it has been the Most Serene Republic's sole supplier of naval combat vessels. With state of the art production facilities, well trained and experienced specialist staff and time tested methods of production, Royal Mian can provide your nation with the equipment it needs. In one form or another, Royal Mian has been producing top quality vessels for more than four hundred years, amassing a wealth of technical knowledge and helping the Most Serene Navy to become one of the best in the world.

As Royal Mian falls under the control of the Mian government, all exports are on a case by case basis. Some designs may only be available to certain nations, just as some designs may only be available in reduced combat capacity to certain nations. Whilst Royal Mian does offer domestic production rights for most of it's vessels, very few nations have in the past ever been approved for this.

II. Conceptualization

In 2009, Seria Naval Construction's top executives and a board of project managers congregated for a meeting at the company's island estate house. They discussed the future of Seria Naval Construction, project ideas for the next decade, and the possibility of lobbying for foreign sale approval. One such project idea that was brought up repeatedly was a foreign export-only series of ships. The vessels would be marketed towards small nations looking to update their navy. However, the fact remained that Seria Naval Construction, along with other Bellganamosian defense companies, was not allowed to export anything to foreign nations. The Foreign Export Combatant Series was scrapped.

In January of 2010, National Legislature passed a bill that made it legal for Bellganamosian defense companies to make foreign sales. This legislation was welcomed greatly by Seria Naval Construction, and they immediately began to prepare themselves for the foreign market. One of the first actions to take place following the passing of the bill was the immediate review of the previously-scrapped Foreign Export Combatant Series, or FECS, as it soon became in Seria Naval Construction. On January 21, the board decided to revive FECS. On January 24, the final details of the project were completed. FECS consisted of a nuclear-powered fast attack submarine, a multirole guided missile frigate and a guided missile destroyer. The ships' sensors, electronics and weapons systems would require cooperation with other companies, but all of the companies that Seria Naval asked happily joined on to the project. All three designs were approved by executive board on January 30. Approval from the Bellganamosian Armament Export Authority was acquired in May.

Construction on the first ships of each class began rapidly. Each ship was laid down in May of 2010, almost immediately after approval from the Bellganamosian military was granted. The Intrepid multirole guided missile frigate was laid down on May 21, and construction accelerated from that point forward. In December, she was complete and began sea trials. Impressed by the performance of the Intrepid, Seria Naval Construction decided to continue to construct Intrepids. Currently, all frigates in the class are moored at Seria's private port, just north of the city. They are taken out to sea by a civilian crew at least once per month.
III. Design features

Intrepid is powered by two Universal Electric gas turbines, which produce 51 MW of power, or about 68,000 shaft horsepower. The turbines' machinery is soundproofed through rubber matting in the floor and walls. This reduces the ship's acoustic signature, making it less vulnerable to sonar systems from lurking submarines. The turbines drive two shafts, which spin two 4-bladed controllable-pitch screws. Intrepid's flank speed is measured at 29 knots, but on a well-maintained propulsion system and hull, it can reach speeds of up to 32 knots. Cruise speed is 19 knots, which gives the ship a range of 6,500 nautical miles.

Intrepid is primarily designed to be an air defense frigate, and for that reason it requires advanced electronics, specifically in the radar systems. Intrepid features an advanced dual-band radar system (DBR). Whereas other vessels use multiple radars on different bands, Intrepid's DBR can fulfill all of the ship's requirements with only two radars on two bands. The DBR is divided into two components. The first is the R-113 multi-function radar, or MFR, that operates at the X-band. It is an active electronically-scanned array, or AESA. AESA has several advantages over its cousin, the passive electronically-scanned array, or PESA. First, AESA has a low probability of intercept, or LPI. This is because AESA can change its frequency with each pulse, making it nearly impossible for a radar warning receiver to interpret it. Likewise, attempting to jam an AESA radar is difficult due to the change in frequency with each pulse. AESA radars are also more reliable than PESA, due to the individuality of each transmit/receive module. For instance, if one module were to malfunction, the other modules in the array would still operate. Furthermore, the modules do not need large power voltages to operate efficiently. As mentioned previously, R-113 operates at the X-band. X-band has very short wavelengths, making it extremely sensitive and allow for greater target identification. These characteristics make the X-band ideal for the accurate tracking, discrimination and illumination of targets. R-113's roles include, but are not limited to, air and surface tracking, horizon search, gun and missile fire control, and navigation assistance. R-113 has a maximum air tracking range of 100 miles at its maximum power use of 3 MW. R-113 has four fixed sensor arrays, or faces, mounted on a pyramid-shaped structure on Intrepid's superstructure. The location of the panels allow for 360 degree coverage. The second part of the DBR is the R-98 volume search radar, an active electronically-scanned array operating at D-band frequencies. The volume search radar is primarily used as an airborne early warning system with its range of 220 miles. The R-98's antenna is a black panel on the aft superstructure.

In addition to its radar, systems, Intrepid boasts an array of other sensors and electronics. The ship's sonar suite includes an high-frequency active sonar and a passive towed-array sonar. The active sonar is a bow-mounted system, and can be used to detect mines or other obstruction that may cause harm to the ship. As active sonar is easily detected by sonar systems, the bow-mounted array should only be used when it is absolutely necessary. Active sonar "pings" can cover extreme distances, and continuous usage of it can result in detection by a hostile submarine. The passive towed-array is designed specifically to detect other submarines. It is almost a kilometer in length, allowing the passive sonar to do its work unhampered by any noise produced by Intrepid's propulsion systems. The E-29 is an electronic warfare suite with equipment for both electronic support measures (ESM) and electronic countermeasures (ECM). For electronic support measures, Intrepid carries a single antenna that can be used to detect, track, and locate radar emissions. The antenna is also capable of radar jamming, completing a portion of the ship's ECM capability. Four chaff and infrared rapid blooming off-board chaff (RBOC) launchers complete the ship's electronic countermeasures. This equipment would be the last line of defense in case of an enemy missile attack. Intrepid carries a torpedo decoy system and noisemaker launchers as anti-torpedo countermeasures.

Intrepid has many different armaments, including vertical launching systems, gun close-in weapon systems, guns, torpedo tubes and anti-ship missiles. The primary armament on the ship is a 48-cell Mk 71 vertical launching system (VLS). The VLS is mounted fore of the superstructure and aft of the ship's 76mm gun. It is divided into six 8-cell modules, each with their own power supply. The cell dimensions are 23 inches by 23 inches by 24 feet. The VLS is capable of mounting a wide variety of weapons, ranging from the Standard missile series, Lamonian/Lyran cruise missiles, ASROC torpedo rockets and more. The cells are "hot launch", meaning that the missile ignites within the confines of the cell. It is the opposite of "cold launch", when the missile is ejected out of the cell before igniting. As Intrepid is an air defense frigate, it is recommended that one stocks it with surface-to-air missiles rather than anti-ship or land attack missiles. Two 4-cell anti-ship missile launchers are fitted amidships. It can be armed with the Harpoon missile and other munitions of the same size. A 21-cell point defense missile launcher is located on the superstructure. The launcher operates the RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile launcher (RAM) for last resort defenses. Also on the superstructure is a single CIWS mount. The mount is capable of operating several CIWS systems, including Goalkeeper and Phalanx. On the foredeck is a 76mm/3 inch gun. This gun can be used to target other watercraft, but can also be used for small-scale shore bombardment if the need arises. Two 25mm naval autocannons are also equipped, and can be used for air defense and anti-surface engagements against small watercraft. Two .50cal machine gun mounts can be found amidships on either side of the vessel. Rounding out the weapons list are two triple 324mm torpedo tubes, found amidships. They bolster the ship's anti-submarine warfare capabilities.

Intrepid has a complement of 212, of which 28 are officers. 168 crew members are enlisted, and the remaining 16 are part of the ship's small aviation detachment. Automation is present aboard the vessel, which reduces manning requirements and training time. A landing pad and hangar are located aft of the superstructure. The hangar can store one medium-lift helicopter (example: SH-60 Seahawk). The helicopter can complete several tasks, such as Underway Replenishment and anti-submarine warfare.
IV. Export

Intrepid represents the cutting edge in 21st century naval technology. However, it was not designed for use by the Bellganamosian Navy. For that reason, Intrepid is classified as Security Grade Three, meaning that it is capable of being purchased by any nation. The price per unit of an Intrepid-class air defense frigate is 900 million universal standard dollars. Domestic production rights can be purchased for 900 billion dollars, or the price of 1,000 vessels. Munitions are not included in the purchase of Intrepid, but all means of launching them (VLS, launchers) are. Construction time for an Intrepid is approximately seven months. Upon completion, a civilian crew from Seria Naval Construction will sail the vessel to the customer's designated port.

II. Conceptualization

In 1997, the Bellganamosian Navy was undergoing a massive modernization phase for the 21st century. This project, which was appropriately named the 21st Century Naval Project, was the largest and most expensive naval modernization plan in Bellganamosian naval history. The 21st Century Naval Project was a direct result of a 1993 report on the status of the Bellganamosian Navy. The report found that the nation's surface fleet was in dire need of upgrade and modernization. It also stated that the Navy's submarine fleet would need to be inspected closely, and possibly replaced within ten to twelve years. After several weeks of intense debating over the components of the plan, the Navy launched the 21st Century Naval Project. The plan called for new surface combatants, support ships, munitions and aircraft. In total, the project would cost nearly trillions of dollars over ten years, but in the eyes of the military brass it was a worthy price to have a navy prepared for the 21st century.

One of the major undertakings in the plan was the replacement of the Bellganamosian Navy's cruiser inventory. At that time, the Navy operated the Terramen-class cruiser, which were built mostly in the 1960s. Not only were these ships old and dilapidated, they did not have up-to-date equipment despite the numerous upgrades Terramen-class systems received during the 1980s. The cruisers were powered by gas turbines, which were not sufficient to cover long distances. The class also lacked a vertical launching system that was beginning to become the standard weapon system among guided-missile cruisers. Instead, Terramens relied on twin-armed missile launchers, which were bulky and had to be manually reloaded by the crew. These problems were just a few of the many the Terramen-class cruiser faced. The Navy made cruiser replacement a top priority in the 21st Century Naval Project, and they requested new cruiser designs from three major shipyards in Bellganamos. Seria Naval Construction submitted its design about a month after the request by the Bellganamosian Navy was received. The cruiser, which was called Oceania by Seria Naval, was met with positive response from the Bellganamosian naval brass. Seria Naval Construction was awarded the contract for the project, and the lead ship, Oceania, was laid down in August of 1997. It was completed about a year later, and sea trials were conducted for eighteen months. The ship was officially commissioned into service on December 18, 2000 as BNS Oceania. Forty-three more units were ordered by the Bellganamosian Navy.

Since 2000, the Oceania-class cruisers have been constructed at a rate of about four per year. Seria Naval Construction builds about two per year, and Meresta Shipbuilding and Terramen Ship & Boat construct one apiece. Oceanias have performed magnificently in combat operations, including the New Korongolese War, when one ship destroyed a major Korongolese airbase with Tomahawk land attack cruise missiles. The last ship, BNS Front Range, was commissioned in mid-2011. The Navy plans to operate Oceania through 2040.
Design features

The Oceania is designed to be a multimission platform that is capable of many roles within a navy. This list of possible duties include escort and protection for aircraft carriers and amphibious warfare ships, anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, and land attack. Oceania is primarily used within the Bellganamosian Navy as an escort for carrier battle groups and amphibious expeditionary groups, but it has also been used for land attack, especially during the Korongolese War. Previously, the Terramen-class cruiser was used for escort duties, but its lack of range and modern armaments was a hindrance in this role. To combat the range problem Terramen had, and to increase the versatility of the new ship, it was decided by the Bellganamosian Navy that the new cruiser class had to be nuclear-powered. Two pressurized water reactors producing 110 MW, or 147,000 shaft horsepower, power Oceania. The reactors are cooled by coolant pumps, unlike Bellganamosian nuclear submarines, whose reactors are cooled primarily through the natural convection of ocean water. The reactor's machinery, like all of the machinery aboard Oceania, is soundproofed through rubber matting, thus reducing the ship's acoustic signature. The reactors drive four turbines, which are connected to two shafts, which spin two, five-bladed controllable-reversible pitch, or CRP, screws. The CRP is immensely powerful, and it is capable of stopping the ship in two-and-a-half shiplengths. The ship has two backup diesel engines which total 16 MW in power together. At full ahead, Oceania can reach speeds up to 35 knots, while typical cruise speed is around 25 knots within Bellganamosian carrier groups, as all ships are nuclear-powered.

One major design request made by the Bellganamosian Navy was the addition of a new combat control suite that combines the ship's radars, countermeasures and weapons into a single system. The result of that request was the Mk 1 Citadel combat system. Citadel is an advanced combat control center that uses powerful computers and radars to guide missiles against targets. As Oceania-class cruisers often work in a group with other vessels, Citadel was designed to work together with other Citadel systems. Not unlike the Aegis combat system, Citadel is based around a central command and control element, and two subsystems. Citadel's two subsystems are the Citadel Weapon System, or CWS, and the Citadel Anti-Ballistic Missile Defense System, or CABMS. Each contains the various missile, gun, radar and countermeasures found aboard Oceania. CWS and CABMS are based around the BNCR-5 multi-function radar, which uses the X-band, and the BNCR-11 volume search radar, which uses the S-band, in a dual-band radar (DBR) system. The first part of the DBR is the BNCR-5 multi-function radar. It is an active electronically-scanned array (AESA) radar. An AESA radar has several advantages over passive electronically-scanned array, or PESA, radars. First, AESA has a low probability of intercept, or LPI. This is because AESA can change its frequency with each pulse, making it nearly impossible for a radar warning receiver to interpret it. Likewise, attempting to jam an AESA radar is difficult due to the change in frequency with each pulse. AESA radars are also more reliable than PESA, due to the individuality of each transmit/receive module. For instance, if one module were to malfunction, the other modules in the array would still operate. Furthermore, the modules do not need large power voltages to operate efficiently. The BNCR-5 uses X-band frequencies. X-band has very short wavelengths, making it extremely sensitive and allow for greater target identification. These characteristics make the X-band ideal for the accurate tracking, discrimination and illumination of targets. With X-band, BNCR-5 is capable of a multitude of different tasks that would usually require a dedicated radar. This list of duties includes, but is certainly not limited to, horizon surface and air search, surface and air tracking, gun and missile fire control, and navigation assistance. At its maximum power output of 10 MW, BNCR-5 can track hundreds of targets at ranges up to 300 miles away. The second component of the DBR is the BNCR-11 volume search radar. The BNCR-11 is a volume search radar that uses the S-band. The volume search radar is designed to be a long range early warning system, and like its MFR counterpart it is an AESA radar. The S-band is suited for long range volume search, all-weather operation and target tracking and resolution. It has a range of approximately 500 miles at maximum power. Each radar and its respective band has four fixed (non-rotating) sensor arrays, or faces, mounted on a pyramid structure on the superstructure. One face for each radar is on each side (port, starboard, fore, aft) of the pyramid. The location and height of the faces allow for 360 degree coverage and a greater horizon for the radars. Together, the BNCR-5 and BNCR-11 form a layered defense to shield the ship and other vessels from any sort of missile attack. CABMS operates with the same exact systems as CWS, but uses different missiles, such as the Lyran-designed MSS-194A anti-ballistic missile. Both radar systems operate with the same electronics and send a single stream of data to Citadel's computer systems. Controlling all of Citadel's systems is the computer-based command-and-decision (C&D) element. In the event of an attack, the C&D computer will prioritize targets based on specifications such as speed, warhead, proximity, etc, and engage the targets that are the most eminent threat. Citadel is also responsible for the ship's electronic warfare suite, sonar systems and countermeasures set.

In addition to its dual-band radar system, Oceania has several other sensors along with communications, countermeasures and electronic warfare equipment. The ship has a sonar suite with a high-frequency active sonar and a passive towed-array sonar. The bow-mounted high-frequency active sonar array can be used to detect submarines, mines and other obstruction that may cause harm to the vessel. The cost of using active sonar, however, is heavy, as it can easily be detected by other sonar systems. In a wartime environment, high frequency pings are an invitation to enemy submarines. The active sonar should be used only when it is absolutely necessary, and even then its usage should be moderated heavily. A kilometer-long passive towed-array sonar is mounted on the stern of the ship. Its length allows the towed-array to clear itself of any noise caused by Oceania's propulsion systems. This allows the passive sonar to due its work unhampered. The two helicopters Oceania is capable of carrying can be equipped with sonobuoys and dipping sonar to boost the ship's ASW defenses. The BNCE-5 electronic warfare suite contains equipment for both electronic support measures (ESM) and electronic countermeasures (ECM). The BNCE-5 is based around two antennae on either side of the ship. The two antennae are capable of completing the ship's electronic ECM and ESM requirements. For electronic support measures, Oceania the two antennae detect radar emissions and communications, which can then be intercepted, tracked and located by the electronic warfare suite's software. Oceania's electronic countermeasures include four active radar jamming pods and 12 chaff and infrared decoy rapid blooming off-board chaff (RBOC) launchers. In the event of an enemy missile attack, this equipment is one of the last lines of defense. BNCE-5 is completely integrated with Citadel. The SCCM-10 anti-submarine countermeasures set is more of an anti-torpedo system. Towed torpedo decoys are used to defeat passive sonar torpedoes by emulating ship noise in an attempt to lure torpedoes away from Oceania. Towed torpedo decoys are useless against active seeker torpedoes such as the Mk 48 ADCAP. The ship also has two noisemaker launchers, which are mounted on either side of the vessel near the stern. The vessel has dozens of communications systems, allowing the vessel to receive and send encrypted communications all around the globe through various radio frequencies, such as ELF and VLF, and even through satellite. The ship can also communicate to missiles in flight through the Citadel combat system.

Oceania boasts an impressive array of many different weapon systems, ranging from guns to torpedoes. Three Mk 71 vertical launching systems, or VLS, are the primary armament. One VLS is fore of the superstructure, and aft of the 5 inch gun on the foredeck. The others two aft of the helicopter landing pad and fore of the towed array sonar housing and anti-ship missile launchers. Each VLS consists of 64 cells grouped into eight 8-cell modules, with the total number of cells totaling 192. Each 8-cell module receives its own power, separate from the others, so that if one module malfunctions the entire system is not equally affected. Each cell measures 24 inches by 24 inches by 23 feet The cells are "hot launch", which means that the missile's propulsion system ignites inside the confines of the cell. A hot launch system is the opposite of a cold launch system, where the missile is ejected out of the cell before igniting. The VLS fires at a rate of approximately one cell launch per second when operating at full power. Mk 71 is capable of launching many different missiles, a list that includes the Standard missile series, Lyran/Lamonion cruise missiles and ASROC anti-submarine rockets. As Oceania is primarily a carrier escort cruiser, it usually carries SAMs in about 75% of its cells, with the rest being occupied by ASROC, anti-ship and cruise missiles. Bellganamosian cruisers typically carry a mix of Standard and Lyran SAMs, along with Lamonian/Lyran cruise missiles. For standard patrols, a Bellganamosian Oceania will carry the following missiles in its VLS:

  • 64x MSA-174 Standard Extended Range Active Missile
  • 128x MSA-162 Standard Enhanced Sea Sparrow Missile (32 cells, quad packed)
  • 48 MSA-43 multirole surface-to-air missile
  • 24x RSU-5 anti-submarine rocket (ASROC)
  • 12x MSS-45 Hellion land attack cruise missile
  • 12x MSS-7A Viking hypersonic anti-ship missile
In addition to the VLS, Oceania operates three other missile systems. Four Mk 55 anti-ship missile launchers, each containing four cells are equipped. Each cell is large enough to contain a Harpoon-sized anti-ship missile. The MSS-84A Razor anti-ship missile is the current Bellganamosian AShM of choice in this role. Two launchers are on the afterdeck, with one launcher on either side near the stern of the ship, and two are located amidships. A pair of Mk 52 point defense missile launchers are designed, in conjunction with CIWS, RBOC launchers and electronic jamming, to be the last line of defense for the cruiser in the event of an attack. Each launcher contains 21 cells for a total of 42. It fits the RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) SAM and similar-sized munitions. A launcher is mounted on the fore superstructure and aft superstructure, allowing the two launchers to cover the entire vessel. There are four CIWS mounts around the ship, capable of mount many different CIWS, including Phalanx, Goalkeeper, and others. One mount is on the bow, and three are on the fore and aft parts of the superstructure. This allows for the CIWS to engage a target inbound for the superstructure. The standard CIWS in service within the Bellganamosian Navy is the Mk 28 Bastion CIWS, which is based on the Goalkeeper system. Bastion includes a 30mm radar-guided autocannon, and is tied to the ship's radar system. Two 25mm naval autocannons on the starboard and port sides amidships can be remotely operated for anti-air defense, but are usually reserved for attacking small ships within close proximity to the vessel. Four .50cal machine guns, two on each side, are located on the stern and amidships. A 127mm/5 inch, 62 caliber rapid fire gun is mounted on the foredeck. It houses 20 rounds at a time, and roughly 700 are kept in storage. The gun is effective against small watercraft, and can be used for shore bombardment. Finally, Oceania's two triple 324mm torpedo tubes, mounted on either flank of the vessel like most of the other weapon systems, provide additional ASW support.

Oceania has a complement of 482, of which 35 are officers and the remaining are enlisted. 35 crew members are part of the ship's small helicopter detachment. Citadel has a fairly large amount of automation, especially in the system's fire control and command & decision elements. Automation reduces the manning requirements of the ship and also makes the crews' jobs much easier. As mentioned previously, nearly all of Oceania's systems are integrated into Citadel, and uses similar software. Citadel was designed to be extremely user friendly. An example of this is the use of touchscreen displays and off-the-shelf computer equipment. Oceania has a landing pad and hangar that is capable of housing two medium-lift helicopters, such as the SH-60 Seahawk. This facility is located between the ship's two aft VLS, and Oceania's superstructure. Typically, the Bellganamosian Navy uses these helicopters for ASW and Underway Replenishment. However, the helicopter can also serve as an offensive platform by carrying radars to extend the vessel's radar range. The ship carries enough food and other supplies for 45 days, but can be resupplied at sea to extend patrol time. Crews are provided with many amenities, including high-quality cuisine, comfortable berthing, computer access and television (albeit a few days late than original airing, no live streaming).
IV. Export

Oceania is a highly advanced vessel, and thus, its export is restricted. Nations with a security clearance grade of Tier Two may purchase the Oceania-class nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser for a cost of 2.2 billion universal standard dollars. DPR is available for a price of 2.2 trillion universal standard dollars, or the equivalent of 1,000 vessels. Several highly-classified systems that were designed solely for the Bellganamosian Navy have been removed. In addition, munitions are not included when purchasing the vessel. All means of launching munitions, such as the VLS and torpedo tubes, are included with purchase of the Oceania. Construction time for each vessel is approximately fourteen months. Once the ship is completed, a Seria Naval Construction crew will sail the vessel to a port designated by the customer.

II. Conceptualization

In 2009, Seria Naval Construction's top executives and a board of project managers congregated for a meeting at the company's island estate house. They discussed the future of Seria Naval Construction, project ideas for the next decade, and the possibility of lobbying for foreign sale approval. One such project idea that was brought up repeatedly was a foreign export-only series of ships. The vessels would be marketed towards small nations looking to update their navy. However, the fact remained that Seria Naval Construction, along with other Bellganamosian defense companies, was not allowed to export anything to foreign nations. The Foreign Export Combatant Series was scrapped.

In January of 2010, National Legislature passed a bill that made it legal for Bellganamosian defense companies to make foreign sales. This legislation was welcomed greatly by Seria Naval Construction, and they immediately began to prepare themselves for the foreign market. One of the first actions to take place following the passing of the bill was the immediate review of the previously-scrapped Foreign Export Combatant Series, or FECS, as it soon became in Seria Naval Construction. On January 21, the board decided to revive FECS. On January 24, the final details of the project were completed. FECS consisted of a nuclear-powered fast attack submarine, a multirole guided missile frigate and a guided missile destroyer. The ships' sensors, electronics and weapons systems would require cooperation with other companies, but all of the companies that Seria Naval asked happily joined on to the project.

The design of the guided missile destroyer, named the Dauntless-class, proved to be the most controversial of the three. In the early days of development, the Seria Naval design team envisioned the ship being powered by a combination of electric motors and gas turbines, called an integrated electric propulsion system. It is similar to the system found aboard the Type 45 Daring-class destroyer. However, the particular propulsion system was considered too highly advanced for an export ship by the executive board, and the idea was scrapped in favor of traditional gas turbines. Despite this decision, the executive board lodged an inquiry with the Bellganamosian Navy regarding the propulsion system. The Navy stated that they "had no plans to equip such an integrated electric propulsion system any time in the near future". The integrated electric propulsion system was revived. All three designs were approved by the executive board on January 30. Approval from the Bellganamosian Armament Export Authority was acquired in May.

Construction on the first ships of each class began rapidly. Each ship was laid down in May of 2010, almost immediately after approval from the Bellganamosian military was granted. Dauntless was completed roughly one year later, and immediately began sea trials. Her capabilities impressed the Seria Naval team, and quickly they called for several more Dauntlesses. All completed vessels are moored at Seria Naval Construction's private port, and are taken out to sea at least once per month by a civilian crew.
III. Design features

Dauntless features a new integrated electric propulsion system, the first ever designed for a ship by Seria. It is also the first such system devised for a warship in Bellganamosian history. An integrated electric propulsion system uses both gas turbines and electric motors to propel the ship. Integrated electric propulsion has several advantages over gas turbines. The first is rapid acceleration. During sea trials, Dauntless managed to accelerate to a speed of 28 knots in just over a minute (63 seconds). Secondly, it allows for unprecedented range for a conventionally-powered vessel. Whereas a gas turbine-powered Arleigh Burke-class destroyer is capable of sailing approximately 5,000 miles, Dauntlesshas a range of nearly 8,000 miles. Lastly, electric propulsion is very quiet compared to other forms of propulsion. There are two main sources for providing power for the ship's functions (weapons, sensors, etc) and its main propulsion system. The first is two gas turbines, each producing 29,000 shaft horsepower, for a total of 58,000 shaft horsepower. The second is two diesel generators, producing 5,300 shaft horsepower between each other. The gas turbines and diesel generators provide high voltage power to the two electric motors. The motors drive a shaft each, which spin the ship's two 5-bladed constant-pitch screws. Much of the machinery around the propulsion system is soundproofed through rubber floor and wall matting. This matting reduces Dauntless' acoustic signature. This propulsion system is identical to the Type 45's. At full speed ahead, Dauntless can reach about 32 knots. Cruise speed is 18 knots, which enables a range of 6,900 nautical miles.

Dauntless was designed to work in tandem with the Intrepid-class air defense frigate, and to do so effectively, it must have similar electronics and sensors. Thus, Dauntless is equipped with the exact same radar, sonar and electronic warfare suites as the Intrepid. Like its frigate counterpart, Dauntless features a dual-band radar (DBR) system capable of completing many different tasks with only two radars that would normally take several separate frequency radars. The DBR is divided into two components. The first is the R-113 multi-function radar, or MFR, that operates at the X-band. It is an active electronically-scanned array, or AESA. AESA has several advantages over its cousin, the passive electronically-scanned array, or PESA. First, AESA has a low probability of intercept, or LPI. This is because AESA can change its frequency with each pulse, making it nearly impossible for a radar warning receiver to interpret it. Likewise, attempting to jam an AESA radar is difficult due to the change in frequency with each pulse. AESA radars are also more reliable than PESA, due to the individuality of each transmit/receive module. For instance, if one module were to malfunction, the other modules in the array would still operate. Furthermore, the modules do not need large power voltages to operate efficiently. As mentioned previously, R-113 operates at the X-band. X-band has very short wavelengths, making it extremely sensitive and allow for greater target identification. These characteristics make the X-band ideal for the accurate tracking, discrimination and illumination of targets. R-113's roles include, but are not limited to, air and surface tracking, horizon search, gun and missile fire control, and navigation assistance. At its maximum power usage of 6 megawatts, it is capable of tracking targets in excess 200 miles. R-113 has four fixed sensor arrays, or faces, mounted on a pyramid-shaped structure on Intrepid's superstructure. The location of the panels allow for 360 degree coverage. The second component of the DBR is the D-band R-98 volume search radar (VSR). The volume search radar is primarily used as an airborne early warning system with its range of 330 miles. The R-98's antenna is a black panel on the aft superstructure.

Dauntless, in addition to its dual-band radar system, has an array of other sensors, countermeasures and electronics. It is equipped with a sonar suite consisting of a bow-mounted high-frequency active sonar and a passive towed-array sonar. The bow-mounted active sonar can be used to detect submarines, mines and obstruction that may cause harm to the vessel. The cost of using active sonar, however, is heavy, as it can easily be detected by other sonar systems. In a wartime environment, high frequency pings are an invitation to enemy submarines. The active sonar should be used only when it is absolutely necessary, and even then its usage should be moderated heavily. The passive towed-array sonar can be found on the stern of Dauntless. It is almost a kilometer in length. The size of the towed-array is designed for it clear itself any noise produced by Dauntless, allowing the passive sonar to do its work unhampered. Two medium-lift helicopters, equipped with sonobuoys and dipping sonar, can further boost the ship's anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities. The NCS-9 countermeasures set is designed to be an anti-torpedo countermeasures system. It consists of a towed torpedo decoy, found alongside the towed-array sonar, and two noisemaker launchers found on the stern. Electronic warfare is provided by the BellTech E-29 electronic warfare suite, consisting of equipment for both electronic support measures (ESM) and electronic countermeasures (ECM). ESM gear includes two antannae designed to detect hostile radar emissions. The information can then be located and tracked. Six rapid blooming offboard chaff (RBOC) launchers are the primary ECM component. As the name implies, the launchers can fire chaff, but are also capable of launching IR decoys. Two active radar jamming pods, designed as a last line of defense against enemy missile attacks, are also part of the ship's electronic countermeasures. The ship has various means of communication. It is able to receive and send encrypted communications through various radio frequencies and satellite.

A multitude of weapons systems make Dauntless a versatile threat. The primary armament is the two 48-cell Mk 71 vertical launching systems, the same VLS Bellganamosian surface combatants are equipped with. It was graciously supplied to Seria Naval Construction by Sky Defense. The VLS are divided into six 8-cell modules, each with their own power supply. The cells measure 23 inches by 23 inches by 24 feet, allowing them to launching many different munitions, including the Standard missile series, Lyran/Lamonian cruise missiles, ASROC torpedo rockets, and more. The cells are "hot launch" meaning that the missile's propulsion system ignites within the cell. One VLS is fore of the superstructure, the other aft. A strong missile loadout for the VLS, designed to counter any threat or engage any target, should look similar to the list provided below.

  • 12x anti-ballistic missile
  • 48x long-range surface-to-air missile
  • 24x medium range surface-to-air missile (quad packed; 96 total)
  • 12x anti-ship/land attack cruise missiles
Two 4-cell anti-ship missile launchers can be found amidships near the superstructure. It is capable of launching Harpoon-sized munitions. A 21-cell point defense missile launcher, which fits and launches RIM-116-sized munitions, rounds out the ship's missile systems, and is one of the last lines of defense in the event of an enemy missile attack. Two CIWS mounts on opposite sides of the superstructure are capable of mounting various CIWS, including Phalanx and Goalkeeper. The ship has two .50cal machine gun and two 25mm autocannon mounts, found around the superstructure in small stations. These guns can be used to engage small watercraft. The final weapon system is a 127mm/5 inch gun, mounted on the foredeck. It can be used for small-scale shore bombardment. Its rounds can be guided through the R-113 radar.

Dauntless has a complement 275, of which 30 are officers and 240 are enlisted. 35 other crew members will be needed to support the ship's two medium-lift helicopters. The helicopters can assist with anti-submarine warfare and Underway Replenishment. They are provided with a landing pad and a hangar near the stern. The hangar can hold all of the necessary supplies (weapons, fuel, spare parts, etc) for the standard 45 day cruise. A fair level of automation reduces manning requirements, frees up space, and reduces training time. Commercial off the shelf equipment is found in the ship's electronics. Comfortable berthing, computer access and quality food for 45 days are just a few of the crew amenities found aboard Dauntless.
IV. Export

Dauntless, like its counterpart, Intrepid, represents the forefront in naval technology. However, as Dauntless is designed, first and foremost, to be an export-only vessel, it is available for sale to all nations. It can be purchased at a price of 1.5 billion universal standard dollars per unit. Domestic production rights can be purchased for 1.5 trillion universal standard dollars, or the equivalent of 1,000 vessels. Construction time is approximately ten months. Once completed, it will be sailed to the designated port within the customer's nation.

Origins

Pre-twentieth century, the Most Serene Navy relied on it's large number of Stalwart class battleships to provide a heavy support element to it's amphibious assault fleets. With the decommissioning of the class set for 2010 at the latest, the Naval Procurement Division was tasked with finding a replacement, looking initially at foreign based naval yards. After six months of searching, in 1999 three Mian shipyards were each granted one million Steryls and twelve months to provide concepts to the Navy.

The twelve months passed, and each company presented ships that filled the specification perfectly. However, it was one of the rejected concepts from VFS (Valerian FutureShip) that caught the eye of the procurement committee – it called for a smaller, more lightly armoured ship, able to enter into extended operations without the need for escort vessels, but with an increased combat capability. The design was accepted, and VFS was awarded a contract for twenty billion Steryls to develop it. The enterprise was designated as the “Future Battlecruiser Initiative”, and development began in late January, 2001.

In March 2004, the finalised design was again presented to the Procurement Division, which reviewed it thoroughly and placed an order for two hundred and ten, with the program being named as the “Broadsword Class” CBGN. The first steel was cut for CBGN 01 on June 21st, 2004, and work on more than a dozen of her sister ships was under way by the end of the year. CBGN 01 was launched in November of 2008, and was commissioned into the Most Serene Navy as 'MMS Broadsword' on the 12th of April 2010, and has been in active service now for four years.


Design Features
Feared on the Waves, Above the Waves and Below the Waves

Whilst the restricted export version lacks some of the software of the version commissioned by the Most Serene Navy, it still remains a formidable naval vessel.

With 1024 vertical launch system cells fore of the superstructure, the Broadsword class has an impressive amount of firepower at it's disposal, and a large degree of flexibility: the VLS cells can be loaded with a variety of missile types, to fulfil a variety of different tasks, including ASW (Anti-Submarine Warfare, in combination with the onboard helicopters), AAW (Anti-Aircraft Warfare), surface combat and land attack. With the DRB radar tracking system, the ship can track 1,100 individual entities, to a range of 600km using it's own systems. Combined with the DIAMOND Combat and Control Suite, which can link the ship with allied craft, this allows the ship to track and engage targets far outside it's own radar range.

The helicopter compliment that can be carried by the craft provides it's entire sonar capability, with each provisioned with small, tow-able sonar buoys. The two helicopters can also be provisioned with torpedoes or ASW rockets, but a far greater level of ASW firepower can be stored in the ship's VLS cells. The ship can also carry a deployable sonar buoy, which is stored and deployed from a compartment underneath the landing platform.

The ship's main gun, the AGS (Advanced Gun System) uses the same 155 mm calibre as most Mian field artillery forces, although it is unable to fire the same ammunition. Instead, a new range of ammunition was developed for this weapon. The gun barrel is 62 calibers long, and is able to fire the entire magazine (300+ rounds) with an average rate of fire of ten rounds per minute using a water cooled barrel. The AGS is mounted in a turret specifically designed for the Broadsword class, with fully automated ammunition supply and operation. The turret itself is designed to be stealthy, allowing for the entire length of the barrel to be enclosed within the turret housing when not firing.

The DIAMOND Software also excels at anti-aircraft warfare, and has proven extremely capable in protecting both itself and other vessels from both aircraft and missiles. Using data inputs from both on-board systems and those of other networked vessels, the ship projects a 'bubble' of protection around itself, extended around 200km in each direction. Automatic point defence systems are extremely fast and reliable – in testing, CBGN 01 (fitted with 5 GOALKEEPER II CIWS) was fired at by three volleys of four dozen practice missiles. Using a combination of it's CIWS and VL SeaWolf missiles, the ship scored 92 'catastrophic kills' and 52 'mission kills', taking very light (simulated) damage. The time from detection to response from the system was less than half of a second.

A large number of spare berths (152 in all) allows for a large number of naval marines to be carried, along with their equipment. With ten RHIBs stored in compartments underneath the landing deck, and storage space for another ten, the ship is also capable of carrying out maritime patrol missions, and has previously excelled in the anti-piracy role. Additionally, more than half of the spare berths can be removed completely, allowing for increased cargo space within the ship.

Strong Alone, Mighty Together
Designed to excel in a variety of combat situations, the Broadsword can be deployed into almost any 'blue water' role. It is capable of entering into combat operations with no escort vessels, because of it's modularity of carried armaments and sensors. However, when it engages in operations with allied craft, the DIAMOND and DORSAL systems can network with friendly ships, submarines and aircraft, both those using the system or those not. It is in this role that the Broadsword truly comes into it's own; with 1024 VLS cells on-board, it can carry an impressive level of firepower, and with the aide of friendly units providing targeting data, can strike targets far beyond it range of it's own systems.


Export

The Mian Shipbuilding Consortium ultimately falls under the regulations of the Most Serene Navy, and exports are limited in such a manner. The Broadsword class battlecruiser has been given the LER (Limited Export Rating) of B, the second highest. In light of this, the Broadsword is only available to those who are deemed suitable by the review of the Mian High Command. In the case of Domestic Production Rights, these shall only be offered to those nations that the Most Serene Republic deems close allies, or those who otherwise hold special distinction.

The Broadsword Class CBGN is offered for export at the price of 3.4 billion USD (Universal Standard Dollars). Domestic production rights are offered at 15 times this amount (51 Billion). Once receipt of purchase is confirmed, construction will begin immediately, with construction taking roughly 34 months. At this time, the ship will be delivered to the purchasing nation by a civilian crew.

II. Conceptualization

In 1999, a report was submitted to the Bellganamosian Navy's Fleet Readiness Command regarding the status of navy's submarine forces. The details of the reports were appalling. The Thenia-class attack submarines were greatly outmatched by new foreign designs in virtually all categories. Attempts to upgrade the Thenias failed due to the fact that the submarines were roughly twenty-five years old, and were victims of neglect by the High Command, which was focused on the development and procurement of vessels relating to the 21st Century Navy Project. The report concluded that if the Bellganamosian Navy did not move fast to design a better class of attack submarines, it would be greatly outmatched in the submersible environment by potential enemies. Two classes of nuclear-powered attack submarines were requested. One was to be a multirole platform for both open-ocean and littoral operations similar to that of the Virginia-class. The Multirole Advanced Submarine Project was to have improved littoral operations capability. Its roles would include intelligence gathering, reconnaissance, special operations support, and land attack close in to hostile shores while maintaining the capability to be a threat on the high seas. The second submarine design requested was to be an open-ocean domination submarine, equipped primarily to hunt down and destroy hostile ships in open waters and carrier escort duties.

In 2000, the Navy approached the two largest shipyards in Bellganamos. Each was requested to submit a new class of submarine designed to stalk and kill enemy vessels in the open ocean. The designs had to be stealthy, fast and heavily armed. Another major design request was advanced sensors. Meanwhile, another submarine class was designed to be suited for littoral operations by Meresta Shipbuilding. It was named the Tsunami-class. The Navy quickly selected the Tsunami for the Multirole Advanced Submarine Project and the lead ship of that class was constructed by 2001 and commissioned in 2002. 23 more Tsunami-class attack submarines were ordered by the Bellganamosian Navy. As Tsunami was finishing its final phases before its launching, Ciercia Shipyards and Seria Naval Construction were busy designing their submissions for the open-ocean submarine. By August of that year, Seria Naval Construction submitted the Triton-class attack submarine to the Bellganamosian Navy for review. The design was met with extremely positive response from the Bellganamosian Navy's brass, but some edits to the design were made. These edits included the removal of HY-130 steel in favor of the lighter and less-expensive HY-100; the scrapping of a lighter supercritical nuclear reactor; and the inclusion of a new, specially-designed pressurized water reactor. Two boats were made for an initial order. The keel of the Triton was laid down on March 8, 2001. The lead ship was completed in November of 2002, and was commissioned as the BNS Triton on April 15, 2003, National Unification Day.

Ciercia Shipyards and Seria Naval Construction worked side-by-side to deliver to first two boats, the Triton and the Tiamat. Ciercia Shipyards constructed the latter of the two. Impressed after several classified missions conducted by the Tiamat met great success, the Bellganamosian Navy ordered forty-six more Tritons, with three to be commissioned each year. As of July 2011, eighteen boats are in active service.
III. Design features

The Triton-class attack submarine is powered by the BN5S pressurized water reactor, which produces 39 MW or 52,000 shaft horsepower at full power. The BN5S was specially-designed for the Triton, with an improved coolant system and a lower noise output than previous Bellganamosian attack boat reactors. Much of the reactor's machinery, which is loud and easily detected by sonar, is "sound-proofed" through rubber floor matting and lining in the walls. The primary means of cooling the reactor itself is natural convection of ocean water. Small inlets on the submarine's hull take in water as the ship glides through it, thus cooling the reactor. While convection cooling is virtually silent, the downside of this system is that Triton must stay in constant motion or else the reactor will overheat. For this reason, coolant pumps are still onboard for use when the submarine wishes to remain dormant on the ocean floor or the ship requires maximum possible speed. Coolant pumps, however, are much noisier than convection cooling. The BN5S itself is the second-quietest nuclear reactor in active service with the Bellganamosian Navy in terms of total, unhindered (meaning no measures to reduce its acoustic signature were taken against it) noise output, outmatched only by the BN5B of the Switchblade-class ballistic and guided missile submarines. Other measures taken against acoustic signature are classified. The reactor powers two turbines, which drive a single shaft. The shaft is connected to Triton's main propulsion system. The primary means of pushing the Triton through the water is a 7-bladed pumpjet, which was chosen over a traditional screw. Further details on the pumpjet and its ability to lower the submarine's acoustic will be provided later. The pumpjet is protected by a large circular duct, which decreases the already-low noise output from the pumpjet. With its propulsion systems at full power, Triton is capable of reaching speeds in excess of 36 knots, and possibly higher with a good hull and equipment. The strength of HY-100 steel is exhibited in the Triton's test depth, which is in excess of two thousand feet. Originally, Triton was to be constructed with HY-130 steel, but the weight of HY-130 steel and its possible effects on the ship's speed was called into question by the Bellganamosian Navy brass. After a few days of debating, it was then decided that the ship would be constructed mainly HY-100. HY-100 steel is extremely durable and is capable of withstanding great water pressure. The construction material allows the Triton to submerge to greater depths than other submarines constructed with HY-100. The strength of HY-100 is exhibited in Triton's test depth, which is in excess 2,000 feet. Triton features a strengthened sail and retractable hull-mounted bow diving planes for breaking through arctic ice.

The element of utmost importance during the development of the Triton was to combine speed with stealth. It is difficult, however, to achieve an agile and fast submarine that does not make much noise. Therefore, Seria Naval Construction and the Bellganamosian Navy worked together to improve on existing Bellganamosian attack submarine designs, notably the Thenia-class, and also learn from the design flaws that occurred with Thenia. These improvements significantly increased the stealthiness of the Triton. In fact, the Triton is believed to be as quiet moving through the sea than some submarines are when they are tied up at the pier. The first such improvement over Thenia was the removal of a conventional 7-bladed screw in favor of a 7-bladed pumpjet. The pumpjet is less likely to the effects of cavitation when in use, which allows for faster and much quieter operations. The pumpjet allows for silent speeds up to 24 knots, but at this speed the submarine is at greater risk of being detected. Total silence, when detection by even the most advanced sonar system is extremely difficult, is when the ship maintains a speed of 16 knots or lower. The Triton's maximum speed is 38 knots, and possibly higher depending on hull condition. However, when Bellganamosian submarines conduct "sprint and drift" maneuvers, the recommended speed is 32 knots, allowing the ship's passive sonar to operate somewhat more efficiently. During sea trials, the Triton reached a top speed of over 40 knots. However, that was on a near-perfect hull and a rather aggressive captain. The second improvement over Thenia was a thick coating of rubber anechoic tiles on the outer hull of the submarine. Each tile is about 110 milimeters thick, and tremendously reduces has two primary functions. Anechoic material not only abates noise coming from the Triton, but it absorbs active sonar "pings". This reduces the chances of active sonar detecting Triton. As mentioned previously, the reactor itself is primarily cooled by the natural convection of ocean water, which is not only silent, but requires less machinery and equipment to operate, improving cost efficiency and safety. One example of the stealth and technological prowess of the Triton, a single Triton managed to escape four dedicated anti-submarine warfare (ASW) frigates, various ASW aircraft, and two other submarines (they were, however, older and less technologically advanced) even after Triton was detected during sea trials. The submarine was then able to maneuver and "kill" three of the frigates and one submarine with torpedoes before escaping once more from additional ASW aircraft and several more surface ships. This was in no part due to the lack of ability of Bellganamosian ASW assets or their crews; the event was a pristine instance of just how stealthy Triton is. The final, and perhaps most technologically advanced system, was an electromagnetic signature reduction system, or AESR, as it is known within the Bellganamosian Navy. When a submarine moves through water, the large amount of steel in the submarine will cause a disturbance in the planet's magnetic field. This can easily be detected by magnetic anomaly detectors (MAD), which are usually found in anti-submarine warfare aircraft, helicopters and even some torpedoes. The AESR, however, combats magnetic detection by using software that allows the crew to monitor the ship's electromagnetic signature and adjust it accordingly (i.e. diving deeper).

The Triton has many different sensors, electronic systems, and communications systems. A large passive and active sonar sphere is mounted in bow of the ship. To protect it from the Triton's noise, a baffle blocks out sound coming from the submarine and allows the passive sonar to do its work unhampered. The bow dome of the submarine is made out of a composite material that allows sound to pass through it and reach the sphere. A kilometer-long passive towed sonar array is located on the starboard side of the ship. It covers the "blind spot", or baffles, in the submarine's sonar coverage. The length of the towed-array sonar allows it to escape any noise produced by the Triton, similar to how the baffle works with the sphere array. The towed-array is retractable, and is mounted on the starboard side of the Triton. Retraction time, depending on how quiet one would like the withdrawal to be, is approximately ten minutes at the slowest pace. Six rectangular-shaped wide aperture lightweight fiber optic passive sonar arrays, three located on each flank of the vessel, provide lateral sonar coverage and additional fire control for the Triton. Finally, the ship's passive ranging sonar that calculates the distance a contact is from Triton. Together, the towed-array, bow sphere and lateral sonars are capable of detecting sounds many miles away. In addition, the vessel has oceanographic and environmental active sonar that make detailed maps of the ocean floor. Triton is equipped with a high frequency mine and obstacle avoidance active sonar, which, as the name suggests, detects mines and obstruction that may cause harm to the submarine. An I band surface search radar is fitted to assist with navigation. In order to operate this radar, Triton must be a periscope depth, at which point it can raise a small, mast-mounted antenna that operates the radar. Rather than a traditional periscope, the Triton is equipped with a pair of photonics masts. The photonics masts are located entirely in the sail of the submarine and outside of the boat's pressure hull. Due to the location of the masts, the control room, or conn, of the submarine, does not need to be located directly beneath the sail. Therefore, the control room of Triton is located a deck down. Another result of the location of the masts is that it limits the risks of water leakage in the event of damage. The photonics masts contain, amongst other various equipment: high-resolution low-light and infrared cameras; an electronic support measures array; and infrared laser rangefinders. The information gained from the photonics masts can then be sent through fiber optic cables to display panels in the control room for analysis. The masts can also assist with electronic warfare and navigation like a traditional periscope can. The SSCM-11 countermeasures set provides the submarine with noisemakers and various other devices that can help the submarine avoid detection and flee and evade torpedoes. The countermeasures set, specifically the noisemakers, can even be used as an offensive weapon. The Triton can bait hostile forces with a noisemaker and maneuver into an advantageous position, allowing the submarine to either escape or attack the distracted enemy vessels. Encrypted communications can be received through various frequencies, including extremely low frequency (ELF) and very low frequency (VLF). Two high data rate masts allow Triton to communicate simultaneously through super high frequency (SHF) and extremely high frequency (EHF). As part of a dedicated electronic warfare suite, Triton has a dedicated electronic support measures, or ESM, mast in addition to the ESM arrays in the photonics masts. The ESM mast is capable of detecting radar emissions from aircraft and ships, which can then be tracked and located, or the information can be sent to friendly units. The ESM mast is an integral part of the ship's BNSE-5 electronic warfare suite, a system that provides radar processing, automatic threat warning and situation assessment. All of the submarine's masts--photonics, communications, radar, ESM--are retractable.

The primary armament of the Triton is the ship's eight 660mm (26 inch) torpedo tubes, which are capable of firing 660mm torpedoes, UGM-109 Tomahawk-sized cruise missiles, UGM-84 Harpoon-sized anti-ship missiles and mines. The ship's torpedo room has enough space to store up to 50 torpedoes, missiles and mines. The torpedo tubes are all fore-facing, as Bellganamosian torpedoes are designed to turn upon being ejected from the tube. Keep in mind, however, that engaging targets from the rear of the submarine is a difficult task without using a towed-array sonar for fire control assistance. Four tubes are located on each flank of the Triton. The secondary armament is 12 vertical launching system (VLS) cells arranged in a four-by-three array fore of the sail of the submarine. The tubes themselves are located between the bow sonar sphere and the forward ballast tank. These VLS cells are capable of launching various cruise missiles or anti-ship missiles. The VLS provides a great amount of flexibility for the Triton, as it now enables her to carry more torpedoes and anti-ship missiles for her torpedo tubes, rather than be forced to commit space in the torpedo room for carrying cruise missiles. The VLS is capable of mounting and launching UGM-109 Tomahawk-sized munitions. The usual Bellganamosian armament for standard patrols is 24 TUS-173 Tigershark 533mm torpedoes, 12 anti-ship missiles of either MSS-7A Viking or MSS-84A Razor variety, and 12 MUS-109A Tomahawk, MUS-7A Viking, or MUS-45A Hellion cruise missiles in the VLS cells. The Viking will be deployed in the VLS when the ship is going to be within close proximity of hostile vessels, as it is a hypersonic weapon and is more than adept in the role of an anti-shipping missile than the Hellion and Tomahawk are. The Hellion, however, is the usual armament of choice, for its extreme range and land attack capability gives the Triton even unmatched flexibility. This list of weapons is by no means exhaustible; various other torpedoes, missiles and mines can be equipped and launched by Triton. Fire and weapons control is provided by the BellTech BNSF-4 combat control suite, which is an advanced combat system that operates with the ship's many sonar systems to gather accurate target data.

The ship has a complement of 112 crew members, of which 16 are officers. The remaining sailors, of which there are 96, are enlisted. The ship has a fair level of automation, especially in regards to the fire control department, and all of the submarine's systems--sensors, navigation, fire control and countermeasures--are integrated into the BNSF-4 combat control suite operated from the control room. The submarine's various systems are all designed to be user-friendly. The control room itself is a deck down from where it normally is on most submarines, providing greater space for a healthier work environment. This is a direct result of the replacement of the periscope by a photonics mast. Triton can mount the Dry Deck Shelter, which can deploy SEAL delivery vehicles. In the event that a Dry Deck Shelter would be used, it would be attached just aft of the sail, above the after escape trunk. External cargo lockers in the sail can carry enough equipment for eight special operations forces. There are 120 bunks for the crew, and if the mission calls for it, another 50 can be set up in the submarine's enormous torpedo room. Crew comfort has always been an important aspect in Bellganamosian submarine design, as being on several-month long deployments without seeing sunlight or breathing fresh air can have a psychological impact on a sailor. Thus, all submarines are required to provide crews with the best possible amenities and the highest possible comfort. The Triton is no different. A sizable galley, a small gym, relatively spacious living compartments and high-quality food are just a few of the many amenities Triton-class submarines provide for their crews. There is even a small movie theater that can comfortably sit twenty people.
IV. Export

The Triton-class is an extremely advanced vessel, and thus its export, even to nations considered "friendly" to the Federation of Bellganamos, is restricted. Therefore, it is Tier One restricted, meaning that customers must have a security clearance grade of that level to purchase the Triton. Nations with the proper security clearance grade may purchase the Triton-class attack submarine for a cost of 2.8 billion universal standard dollars per unit. To limit the number of vessels that can be produced by foreign powers, domestic production rights to the Triton-class nuclear-powered attack submarine are not available. Construction time for each vessel is approximately twelve months. Once the ship is completed, a Seria Naval Construction crew will sail the vessel to a port designated by the customer.

ENCRYPTION:
NONE


The IRDF is in need of a new ship that can easily defend our fleets and devastate enemy ships in return. After serious analysis and research by the IRDF's top experts in naval design, combat, tactics, and strategies, the IRDF has come to the conclusion that the Royal Mian Shipyards has such a ship. So, the IRDF wishes to purchase the Domestic Production Rights for the Broadsword class CBGN. Considering that the Grand Imperial Republic has non-contiguous national claims within Judea and is member of the Conglomerate, we take the highest discount due to them being non-stackable. This discount would be the Conglomerate one at a 20% discount. With a 20% discount off the original price of 51 billion NSD, the total should come out to 40.8 billion NSD. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and service.

Re: Military Hardware Acquisition


    The Righteous Imperial Dominion, as per the recommendations outlined in the extensive Henderson Defence Review, conducted from 2001-2009, has elected to replace the Dominion’s aging cruiser fleet. The fleet, deemed to be woefully lacking in a world where the rampart proliferation of arms has seen many young and unstable nations acquire first-grade weapon systems, has been mothballed by the Ministry of Defence. To replace this vital component in the Dominion’s Naval Forces, the MoD has turned to your company to fulfil our defence needs. To this extent, we place the following order:

      [DPR] x Broadsword Class CBNG
    Which comes to a grand total of NSD$40,800,000,000.00. Payment will be wired on acceptance.
Sincerely,
