The Carthaginian Naval Export Authority is a joint-stock government-regulated entity formed to market Carthagininan naval armaments abroad. Its shares are presently split 60/40 between the sixteen major conglomerates of Carthage and the Carthaginian government itself and has the mission of providing supplementary income both to its private sector partners as well as the government itself, with all proceeds being set aside for further research and development.

The current line of warships and systems for sale by CNEA were developed for the Carthaginian Navy's Naval Power in the 21st Century program, which sought to develop new technologies, and new warships based on these technologies, for the coming century. Two of the key aspects of the program include the disregarding of old standards and a focus on modularity in design, the reasoning being that for the NP21 program to bring truly revolutionary advances, unnecessary legacy features were not to be maintained simply because of their age, but provisions needed to be made for future advancements.

As a result, every aspect of existing warship design and construction was examined and evaluated, and if new technologies promised greater performance, the old traditions, no matter how firmly rooted, were pushed aside. This resulted in a number of noteworthy changes, such as the transition from conventional propellers to pump-jets, and the consideration of multi-hull designs in what had traditionally been a monohull-dominated industry.

The great cost of the program encouraged the creation of the Export Authority, to allow for the foreign sale of the project's results and to recoup some of the costs of development. Given the commensurately high cost of naval weaponry, deferred payment plans are available to purchasers, although domestic production rights are not yet available.

The Carthaginian Naval Export Authority accepts payments in Universal Dollars (US$), NationStates Dollars (NS$), the Carthaginian Sheqel (₪), and certain commodities (to be negotiated based on market value).

Naval Power in the 21st Century


History
In 1995, the Carthaginian Navy embarked on the ambitious Naval Power in the 21st Century (NP21) project, a decade-long research, design, and development program with the goal of developing a new line of combatant warships to carry the navy into the new century. Major tenets of the program were to include interoperability and interchangeability of as many parts and systems as practicable to reduce maintenance costs, improved independent-action capability, improved combat endurance, and an increased tactical repertoire to better allow the navy to exploit any potential tactical vulnerabilities.

Much of the experience and lessons-learned that went into the project were derived from the Northern War of 1975-78, the First Pacific War of 1975-1980, the Second Pacific War of 1987-1988, and the Argentine Intervention of 1993. Of these conflicts, the Carthaginian Republic directly participated in the Northern War and the First Pacific War, but gained valuable insight from information made available by Japan and Inukiriniwdene.

After two years of compiling and analyzing the information available, as well as surveying the market for the current state of technological readiness, the Carthaginian Research, Development, and Testing Organization (CRDTO) started a 'cooperative competition,' contracting certain members of Carthage's economically dominant conglomerates to develop several solutions to a given challenge, the results then being evaluated for final deployment.

While more expensive than a limited program of selecting a single technology for development, it was felt that the development of parallel technologies would not only benefit civilian industries which could have a potential use for technologies not selected by the Navy, but also allow for the development of somewhat more 'futureproof' designs.

Major lines of research included:

  • Powerplant technology (nuclear, steam, gas turbine, and diesel plants),
  • Powertrain technology (pump-jets, shrouded propellers, and conventional propellers)
  • Alternative hull forms (SWATH, trimarans, and streamlined monohulls)
  • Projectile weapons (ETC, rail/coilguns, vertical guns, and conventional guns)
  • Missile weapons (sea-skimming, supersonic, and high-altitude technologies)
  • Energy weapons (masers, lasers, and acoustic weapons)
  • Stealth technology (Infrared, radar, and acoustic)
  • Sensor technology (AESA, PESA, LADAR, active and passive sonar)
  • Compartmentalization and modularity (particularly from civilian-sector ships)

At the end of six years of research, the CRDTO began assembling these technologies into a 'family' of ships, designed to share modular components where possible, and to be designed around the same principles to ease training and manning requirements. This included standardized control interfaces and maintenance procedures, modular, removable weapon systems capable of being 'hot-swapped' out of drydock to improve readiness rates, automation to reduce crew requirements, and improved safety and survivability.

The single greatest requirement, however, was to improve warfighting and sustainment capability in the field. This meant a greater sortie capacity from carriers, greater detection and engagement ranges from missile warships, greater stealth and mission flexibility from submarines, and improved replenishment efficiency and survivability from support ships.

Design
Beginning in 2002, CRDTO assembled the largest team in its history to carry out this process. Some 500 individuals, working in a dozen teams on a special campus outside the metropolis of Leptis Magna (for which the carrier design would be named). In keeping with the CRDTO's ethos, much of the project was organized and run as a private sector effort, with teams encouraged to freely collaborate and exchange information.

Rather than fixed design deadlines, 'capability goals' were set, encouraging teams to focus on problem solving and innovative solutions rather than churning out work on a mandated schedule. Free access and consultation with civilian-sector experts as well as naval personnel was allowed in order to broaden the team's perspective, and each design was focused to perform as part of an integrated navy, rather than a series of independent ships happening to operate together. Commercial off-the-shelf technology use was also encouraged, to avoid the costly and lengthy development of proprietary military standards.

Each team was not assigned to develop a single ship, but instead to develop a particular sub-system that would be used across the fleet. Overseen by the standards and oversight group, this structure allowed for components such as engines, electronics, and weapons to be standardized across the fleet. These designs were then incorporated into the final series of designs drawn up digitally and tested using both computer-run and computer-manufactured models.

In April 2005, at the end of the project, the first ships of the program were finally approved for procurement and contracts given to NP21 corporate partners. The first ship commissioned was the Ballista-class bombardment ship CRS Ballista, and the most recent ship to enter service is the Leptis Magna-class carrier CRS Gadir.

Brief Overview


The Leptis Magna-class is the largest and best-known product of the NP21 program. Larger and more capable than previous designs, while also stealthier with lower crew requirements, it is a welcome addition to any navy desiring to project power on the strategic scale.

Noteworthy Features:
  • Modular Mission Space - Fully reconfigurable mission space located just below the main hangar can be converted as needed into a second hangar for additional aircraft, an additional armory for weapons, a barracks for amphibious operations, a command center capable of controlling theater-level operations, and whatever else is needed for the mission at hand.
  • Low-observable Design - Advances in warship design allow the Leptis Magna-class to have the radar signature of a previous-generation cruiser, rather than a massive aircraft carrier. By redirecting exhaust to the waterline and cooling it with seawater, thermal emissions can also be nearly eliminated.
  • High Maneuverability - Through the use of pump-jet propulsors for maneuvering at speed, as well as Voith-Schneider propellers for low-speed maneuvering, the Leptis Magna-class is much more maneuverable than a ship of her size would suggest, with a tactical radius of only 1.5 times her length at 25 knots.
  • Modular Design - The use of the MMEPS standard for modular armaments, as well as commercial standards for software and computing hardware make changes and upgrades to the Leptis Magna-class significantly less expensive than options relying on proprietary military standards. Commercial off-the-shelf hardware can be plugged directly into the computer system without modification for quick upgrades to computing power in the future, and armaments can be switched out in less than an hour thanks to the MMEPS configuration.
  • Reduced Manning Requirements - A significant factor in reducing life-cycle cost, improved automation and streamlining of controls across all levels has reduced crew requirements by some 700 personnel over the previous Hannibal Barca-class, despite being a larger, more advanced ship.

Construction Options


The following is a list of construction options that may be requested for exported units, and the price changes associated with them. Other, unlisted changes may be available at customer request.

  • No Weaponry [-$250,000,000] - Units will be shipped with empty MMEPS units. Weapons may either be purchased separately or the customer may mount their own weapons in their place using the MMEPS standard.
  • No Computers [-$500,000,000] - Units will be shipped without computing units installed, although standard fiber-optic cabling and interconnects will be included, ready for indigenous equipment to be installed. If delivery in this state is requested, a placeholder system will be installed temporarily for the voyage and removed upon arrival.
  • Indigenous Powerplant [-$2,400,000,000] - Units can be constructed with foreign powerplants so long as the plant is supplied and meets certain dimensions. Larger plants, particularly those with fuel requirements, may reduce usable internal volume. All plants must output electricity rather than steam, as the ship is currently all-electric. The cost reduction is actually $2,500,000,000 but a $100,000,000 charge for redesign and other necessary work is also included. Final output and performance is based on the efficiency of the supplied powerplant.
  • Conventional Propellers [+$100,000,000] - A conventional shaft-driven propulsion system may be substituted for the pump-jets. There is no significant net change in useful internal volume, but lower propulsive efficiency results in a 0.7 knot loss in maximum speed. A charge is included to order the necessary equipment.
  • Radar-absorbent Materials [+$750,000,000] - Greater use of radar-absorbent materials throughout the carrier where practical may further reduce RCS and detection ranges. However, the delicate nature of this material means that maintenance costs are increased.

Detailed Information


History
In 1995, the Carthaginian Navy embarked on the ambitious Naval Power in the 21st Century (NP21) project, a decade-long research, design, and development program with the goal of developing a new line of combatant warships to carry the navy into the new century. Major tenets of the program were to include interoperability and interchangeability of as many parts and systems as practicable to reduce maintenance costs, improved independent-action capability, improved combat endurance, and an increased tactical repertoire to better allow the navy to exploit any potential tactical vulnerabilities.

Much of the experience and lessons-learned that went into the project were derived from the Northern War of 1975-78, in which the three Ctesiphon Pact states of the Carthaginian Republic, the Russian Empire, and Inukiriniwdene fought the United European Federation, a member of the Montgomery Pact. The opening stages of the war found a large Carthaginian battlegroup of two supercarriers (one nuclear Hannibal Barca-class and one conventional Syphax-class) plus one medium carrier (Libya-class) operating in the Norwegian and Barents Seas, where they had been conducting drills and trials with allied navies.

Although operations in the region were ultimately successful, with UEF Greenland and Iceland both seized and the battlegroup successfully returned to Carthaginian ports, the near-fiasco highlighted several potential shortcomings in existing doctrine and design. These included:

  • Predominantly designed for the sunny climates of the Mediterranean and North Africa, the ships were demonstrated to be hampered in cold-weather operations, especially relative to Russian and Inuk designs. The ships were deficient in de-icing equipment, which slowed air operations below their nominal projected rate.
  • Additionally, cut off from ready lines of supply, the ships were designed to only continue sorties for twenty days, but in practice, commanders estimated that after ten days of operations their existing reserves of spares could last only a few more days of continuous operations. This is despite the reduced sortie generation caused by the shortage of de-icing equipment.
  • Despite the overwhelming quantity of air power possessed by the combined battlegroup, particularly in conjunction with Russian and Inuk escorts, the Carthaginian contingent lacked any capability to launch even small amphibious or aerial assaults. Initial air operations succeeded in suppressing the Greenland and Iceland air defense grids, but a lack of local marine support required the deployment of VDV paratroopers to exploit the vulnerabilities.
  • Although possessing a theoretical maximum of 90 combat aircraft, the class encountered difficulty operating with any number over 80 aircraft, with additional planes creating flight deck and hangar congestion.

By 1995, when the NP21 project was beginning, the first of the Hannibal Barca-class carriers were also beginning to enter their scheduled Refueling and Major Refit (RMR). Originally planned for a 30-month cycle, inspections made in drydock revealed a host of additional complications that would push up overhaul costs and push completion dates back to a 36-month cycle. Thus, improved reliability became an additional priority of the design team.


Hull Design
The hull of the existing Hannibal Barca-class was taken as a broad starting point. Service trials had already demonstrated that the fuller hull of the Hannibal Barca-class over the preceding Syphax-class was not fully offset by the improved length to beam ratio, resulting in a loss of speed. In order to rectify this perceived design flaw, the hull of the Leptis Magna-class was both lengthened and widened, but fineness was increased, returning to a more cruiser-like hull form with superior hydrodynamics and with a net increase in usable internal volume.

Above water, a new emphasis on radar cross-section reduction was instituted, transitioning the island from the conventional flat-sided tower to a well-angled version designed to minimize reflections. Similar changes were made to all other external surfaces, and as much external equipment as possible was either moved to internal storage or faired over with a low-RCS covering. Wider use of radar-absorbent material was considered, but was not approved on the grounds of cost for such a large warship as well as the durability needed to sustain air operations on the flight deck.

To offset the increase in length, weight-saving measures were instituted to keep displacement inflation under control. Many of the external fairings are composed of carbon fiber paneling or take advantage of other non-metallic polymers, with the added advantage of reducing vulnerability to salt water corrosion. By replacing these and certain other elements with lighter weight composites, an estimated 5,000 tonnes of projected weight increase was avoided, improving seakeeping and energy efficiency.

Combined, these features are estimated to reduce radar cross-section by some 60% and infrared emissions by some 80%, while increasing useful volume by 8% and allowing for a 2.5 knot speed increase over the previous class in spite of requiring only 40,000 additional shaft horsepower. Lifecycle costs are estimated to be some 20% lower than a first-generation nuclear aircraft carrier, and crew requirements significantly decreased.


Powerplant
With global commitments to its Ctesiphon Pact allies but no major bases outside native North African territory save Cuba, nuclear power was the favored powerplant solution for the NP21 project. However, unlike previous nuclear warships, the ships of the NP21 program were designed to use integrated electric propulsion, coupling the reactor's steam turbines directly to a set of generators, rather than to the drive shafts and propellers. This was the result of several requirements, namely the need to produce large quantities of electricity for the EMALS catapults and high-power radar and the modularity of the NCV4-series reactor plant.

Each of the two NCV4-C1S pressurized water reactors is integrated into a self-contained 'power pod,' including the reactor vessel itself, coolant loops, steam turbine, and electric generator. Thus, each pod requires only a supply of water for the secondary cooling loop and outputs electricity directly to the ship's power mains. This simplifies maintenance, in particular the Refueling and Major Refit, as the entire pod can be removed and replaced and allows the reactors to be run independently of the propellers. Survivability in the event of damage is also improved, since any contamination that breaches the reactor vessel would be contained within the pod itself.

Compared to the older NCV2-series reactor in the Hannibal Barca-class, the NCV4 is much more powerful despite its more compact footprint. Higher power densities and more efficient conversion equipment give each plant a rated maximum thermal output of 220 MW, of which 190 MW can be converted to electrical power. This means a single reactor can power the vessel up to 30 knots alone, while both reactors together have more than 130 MW of additional power for the ship's systems. Lifespan for each core is expected to be 20 years before scheduled RMR, although continued operation will result in only 10% power loss over the following five years, allowing maintenance to be deferred if necessary.

Supplementing the reactor plant is a 100 MW PR-1400 gas turbine engine, derived from R905 core used in the TR-44 strategic transport. Under normal operating conditions the PR-1400 is not used, but functions as a backup to provide power in the event of a reactor shut down or to supplement reactor output in other situations. The multi-fuel turbine is normally fueled with jet fuel from the ship's aviation bunkers, but can run on most grades of fuel if needed. A supplementary power source is necessary with a PWR system as even if the reactor is shut down, the coolant system must be run to remove residual reaction heat, which can cause a meltdown if allowed to build up. Alone, the turbine can power the ship to up to 26 knots, and with a full bunker of fuel, is rated for 12,000 nautical miles.

Electricity is distributed from the central plants via a multiply-redundant series of mains. In addition to this built-in system, a casualty power system allows for the use of large substitute cables to be plugged into fixed outlets throughout the ship, allowing for the manual rerouting of power around damaged sections. This also allows the ship to send and receive power from external sources, such as when providing assistance for humanitarian programs or when in port, allowing the reactors and turbines to both be shut down for servicing while the coolant pumps are run via external power.


Propulsion
Of the three major propulsion systems considered, it was decided that pump-jet propulsion showed the most promise over existing propellers. By moving the water flow into the hull, and removing the need for long propeller shafts, the system could be made more durable and lighter in weight while also reducing acoustic detection potential. The loss of internal space to the intake gullet and expulsion systems was more than offset by the space gains from the removal of the shaft and gearing systems.

A rimless screw-type propeller was chosen for the pump-jet, removing the need for even an internal shaft arrangement. Tests demonstrated that a center-driven propeller created unwanted turbulence and water flow disruptions around the shaft, reducing propulsive efficiency. The removal of the center shaft also allowed for the use of a more efficient screw propeller as the hollow center allows water to feed into the later stages of the propeller directly, increasing expulsion velocity and thus propulsive efficiency. Instead, the propeller is rim-driven by a permanent magnet motor, resulting in a nearly silent propulsion system.

To counter another major issue in the design of pump-jets, a soft durameter polymer was added to the upper wall of the intake gullet. As ship speeds increase, increased water flow through the intake gullet reduces propulsive efficiency as pressure builds in the intake section of the system. At low and medium speeds, pressure from the intake gullet keeps the polymer in its housing, but at higher speeds, water flowing into the gullet cannot quickly make the angled transition into the gullet, creating a negative pressure bubble which pulls the polymer out, forming a constricting bubble. This bubble reduces water flow into the gullet, thus reducing pressure on the propeller and improving high-speed efficiency.

Steering at high speed is accomplished through a combination of venturi vanes mounted on the pump-jets and a pair of conventional rudders mounted further aft. The steerable vanes allow all of the ship's thrust to be vectored, greatly improving maneuverability over conventional designs. The rudders serve to counter the Coandă effect inherent in pump-jets as well as provide additional emergency braking power by increasing the ship's drag. Between these two systems, the Leptis Magna-class is an extraordinarily agile ship for her size, aiding in torpedo defense and combat maneuvering.

Low-speed steering, where pump-jets are generally poor performers, is accomplished with a pair of retractable Voith-Schneider propellers located along the ship's centerline. These two propellers are capable of fully steering and maneuvering the ship in any direction at a speed of up to five knots, allowing the ship to dock and undock itself under its own power. Outside of port, the propellers are retracted into the hull, and are stored in the space between the outer and inner bottoms, retaining the ship's watertight integrity in the event of potential damage to the system.


Armament & Defensive Systems
A major feature of the NP21 warships is the development of a modular armament system for secondary weapons. The Leptis Magna-class is a beneficiary of this program, dubbed the Modular Mission Enhancement Package System (MMEPS), which allows her armament to be replaced within minutes via crane or heavy-lift helicopter, the new modules slotting into the standard Stele integrated combat management system. This allows malfunctioning modules to be replaced with a working unit while the original is repaired ashore, as well as outfitting the armament for specific threat environments.

Experience in the Barents Sea against large numbers of Exocet-armed UEF warships contributed to the greatly enhanced armament of the Leptis Magna-class, and most NP21 warships. The three Carthaginian carriers were successfully returned home in the face of such attacks only due to the valiant efforts of the Russian defense screen and command of the skies. Despite this, one Exocet did manage to strike Syphax, which was saved only by the missile's faulty detonator, a stroke of good fortune that could hardly be relied on for future engagements.

As a result, the Leptis Magna-class has positions for sixteen MMEPS-C mounts, three pairs on the starboard side, one pair directly aft, and four pairs on the port side. This represents a 50% increase over the previous Hannibal Barca-class, itself a 50% increase over the Syphax-class, without factoring in improvements to the weapons themselves. The standard outfit for a Leptis Magna-class carrier is for a paired arrangement of one "Aspis" CIWS mount and one "Xiphos" interceptor missile mount. Each has onboard engagement radars allowing autonomous target acquisition and engagement against targets within each unit's sector, although they are also networked into the ship's combat management system to maximize efficiency.

The "Aspis" CIWS mount is armed with a 35 mm rapid-fire autocannon with a maximum engagement range of 3,500 meters, and an 11-cell rolling airframe missile launcher with a maximum engagement range of 10 kilometers. The autocannon is fed by a 250-round on-mount ready magazine plus an additional 2,000 rounds stored in the modular base, usually a mix of armor-piercing and fragmentation rounds for use against both soft and hard targets. The "Xiphos" interceptor missile rack houses eight missiles on each module with a maximum engagement range of 24 kilometers. It is optimized to engage both aircraft and supersonic sea-skimming missiles with a high degree of accuracy, although performance is enhanced in conjunction with the more precise shipboard radar suite.

As the units do not require deck penetration in their standalone mounts, they can be attached directly to the flight deck if additional armament is warranted, although this has never occurred in Carthaginian practice as it reduces usable flight deck space and can impede maximum flight efficiency. Standalone CIWS units also do not benefit from the additional round storage of the modular base, and still require electrical and data connections to the ship's systems.

Other MMEPS-C mounts can be used to alter the design armament, including torpedo launchers, anti-ship missile batteries, and even a light naval gun, although none of these are generally recommended for carrier use and are more often the domain of escorts.

Underwater
For sub-surface engagements, the Leptis Magna-class is equipped with two Mk. 40 Surface Ship Torpedo Defense Suites, each composed of a towed passive sonar array to detect potential threats, a towed acoustic decoy, and six deployable standalone acoustic decoys. The towed sonar array is optimized to detect incoming torpedoes over enemy submarines (although it can detect both) and can use the ship's onboard computing power to screen contacts to identify specific makes, models, and attack patterns (if known).

Upon torpedo detection, the system can either automatically deploy a towed or standalone acoustic decoy, modulating the emitted sound to match that of the ship, or deploy an interceptor torpedo from one of two six-round racks mounted low in the hull. Acoustic decoys are generally preferred as resolving the incoming torpedo salvo to sufficient clarity to deploy an interceptor torpedo requires additional time in a situation where such is generally in short supply, although certain types such as wake-homing torpedoes may not be fooled by acoustic decoys.

The large flight deck is angled outward by ten degrees, and flight deck space was largely squared-off relative to previous designs in order to expand available space. Moving the island further to the stern allows for refueling and rearming operations to be consolidated forward with additional space, while the port side is now commonly designated for VTOL operations, either helicopters or embarked VTOL aircraft if supporting amphibious operations.

CATOBAR operations are supported by four Electromagnetic Launch System catapults, using linear induction motors to rapidly but controllably accelerate aircraft to launch speeds. The large power draw from these motors is one of the primary reasons why integrated electric power was chosen over conventional steam, but the benefits are numerous. Much finer control of catapult power is possible using electromagnetic systems, allowing them to launch lighter and heavier payloads without damage to either the aircraft or the catapult. The use of EMALS also removes the need for bulky and complex steam lines from the reactor plant to the flight deck, freeing up space and reducing maintenance requirements.

Three electromagnetically-tensioned arrestor cables are used, mounted on the rear of the flight deck, along with deployable crash barriers in the event of uncontrolled landings. As with the EMALS catapults, these arrestor wires can be dynamically tensioned to allow lighter and heavier aircraft to be recovered, making the operation of light drones possible. Flight deck size also allows land-based tactical airlifters to be operated from the deck, so long as they are equipped for catapult landings and are capable of short takeoffs.

Four elevators (three starboard, one port) are responsible for handling movement between the hangar deck and the flight deck, each capable of handling two standard-size aircraft or loads of up to 250 tonnes. Additionally, three secured lifts are used to move munitions from the armory to the deck to arm and rearm aircraft for sortie. Unlike previous classes, the armory system is operated automatically, and weapons can be moved from the armory to the lift via electric carts without human assistance, improving safety and reducing crew requirements. Ordnancemen on deck can input projected ordinance needs into the automated control system, and the computer will automatically queue up the proper loads to the proper lifts for maximum efficiency and reduced deck travel times. In the unlikely event of malfunction, the system can be operated manually by ordinancemen to continue operations.

The port-side elevator can also be used to embark and deploy small boats. With the elevator at the flight deck position, cranes mounted to the port-side hull can be used to raise and lower boats and other cargo into the water. This feature was considered a priority to allow for the deployment of special operations troops by boat, and potentially to allow rescue submarines to be delivered by aircraft directly to a battlegroup and then be deployed without additional equipment. The cranes together are capable of handling up to 100 tonnes and can be operated at up to 20 knots. The two aft starboard-side elevators are designed to accept underway replenishment linkages.

One unique feature of the class is the addition of a second modular mission bay below the hangar deck. This space was previously occupied by the steam equipment, larger reactor footprint, and additional crew space in the previous class, but was freed up by the expanded hull and improved spacing efficiency. Equipped with two lifts to the main hangar deck, this space can be used as a supplementary hangar, storing lower-priority aircraft, large spares, and other equipment, or converted into a number of other uses, such as a barracks to house troops for amphibious operations, additional munitions space, command facilities for operations, and medical facilities for humanitarian operations. In normal operations, it can be used to clear the deck park to increase space for active operations. This space is located in the bow and measures approximately 75 meters in length, 8 meters in height, with a width varying between 30 and 25 meters.


Survivability and Damage Control
The magazines and reactor systems are protected by a double-layer 30 mm spaced armored box, designed to prevent penetration by splinters from bombs and missiles. The magazines, reactor, and fuel bunkers are additionally protected by 70 mm of kevlar armor to prevent spalling and other residual impact effects. Nonetheless, all three are also equipped with a seawater automatic firefighting system, as well as an inert gas fire suppression system, which in the magazines reacts automatically to detected breaches to prevent a potentially catastrophic detonation.

The main hangar bay is also equipped with four sets of large steel fire doors, capable of sealing the hangar into six compartments, as well as an additional set of six fire curtains for smaller conflagrations. The large elevator doors can be open or shut within 10 seconds, to either ventilate the space or remove oxygen sources for a fire and/or reduce radar returns. The lower modular space has two sets of fire doors and four sets of curtains, but no direct ventilation due to its low position in the hull.


Command, Control, and Electronics
The Leptis Magna-class uses the Stele Integrated Combat Management System to control virtually all operations on the ship. The Stele hardware system uses modular Open Compute server racks connected with 100 Gbps standard fiber-optic taps, allowing for hardware to be replaced and upgraded at will without needing to replace the entire computer infrastructure. The fiber-optic cabling allows for longer cable runs with reduced signal degradation as well as increased bandwidth while also reducing EMP vulnerability.

Using standard commercial connectors and the private sector "Group Hug" modular hardware standard, processing units can be swapped out in minutes and the system can accommodate nearly any form of processing architecture, allowing purchasers to use indigenous components if desired. The Stele software itself is designed to be hardware-agnostic and scalable to incorporate future improvements, which with the existing power generation overhead can be significant in the coming decades.

The previous six radar systems used in the Hannibal Barca-class were replaced with only two units in the Leptis Magna-class: the RAN-34 dual-band search and tracking radar, and the RAD-40 L-band air control radar. The RAN-34 is an AESA radar operating on both the X- and S-bands for volume search and target acquisition, with an estimated range of some 400 kilometers and capable of tracking up to 300 airborne targets. It is mounted on the tall octagonal main mast, with four panels for each band providing continuous, full coverage with no moving parts. The RAN-34 is mounted lower and is designed to manage both arrival and departure air operations.

Stele at the ship level is designed to integrate all sensors and control systems to give the most complete picture possible to the crew and decision-makers in the loop. It can also recommend tactical responses based on detected attack profiles against the host ship, and take action autonomously if a detected attack is judged to give insufficient human reaction time.

The network aspects of Stele also allow it to both send and receive additional data from other ships and aircraft, both those operating a similar network and those operating a compatible interface. Thus, it is possible for a ship using Stele to engage a target it does not directly detect, so long as a node in the network has the proper targeting data. This means that the carrier's CIWS grid can be remotely linked to a potentially more powerful radar array on an escorting missile cruiser, or its torpedo defense system coordinated with the fleet to ensure maximum coverage.

To: Avram Ward, Chief Business Officer, & Adherbal Gadir, Chairman of the Oversight Committee
From: Rt Hon Julius Frej Shriver, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Her Majesty's Government
Subject: HM Government Contract [Translated to English][Translated from Yohannesian]

Dear Mr Ward,

I would like to first offer the appreciation of Her Majesty's Government for the attentive correspondence of your represented Oversight Committee. This letter has been written by I myself to convey the interest of HM Government to lodge our first order contract to the Carthaginian Naval Export Authority. As you may well have acknowledged from previous correspondence or reference, the Commonwealth Navy has recently seen the necessity to further expand its strategic presence overseas, following the development of recent events in Hippostania and Mertado.

My secretaries have recently noted your represented Global Economics & Trade index-listed storefront, and delivered the aforementioned available information for I to fully consider. After further confirmation and information was acquired from the Admiralty's adjutants, I have thus decided that Carthaginian Naval Export Authority shall be selected as one of the Commonwealth Navy's foreign naval providers.

Henceforth, by my full authority and approval of the States-General, and as verified by Her Majesty's Chancellor the Rt Hon Edmund Autenberry, have I and HM Government of the nineteen countries lodged this request for the importation purchase of:

  • [18x] Leptis Magna Class CVN: US$135,000,000,000.00
  • Total: US$135,000,000,000.00
At the surmounting full monetary payment requirement of the above mentioned amount - subject to the approval of your represented comittee - in Universal Standard Dollars by foreign exchange standardisation and international denomination. The required paperwork and delivery details of the above mentioned contract have been printed, and should arrive by twelve hours' time. Upon the notification of approval by your represented body or international sales and contracting department, the above mentioned projected amount of monetary fund shall be allocated by one full working day's period to the account of your represented organisation.

Should there be any issues requiring further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me immediately.

Sincerely,
