Description
The Templar-class Destroyer essential forgoes the older cruiser style of ship. In many senses it serves both roles of destroyer and cruiser. It is fully capable of operating alone in a large variety of roles, like a cruiser, but is also quite suited to operating as an escort as a destroyer would.
It's large flight deck and large RHIB bay inside would give it near Littoral duties as well, were it's draft not too deep at 29 feet, though it still can serve was as a combat-support for Special Forces and fast response to a variety of scenarios. It's 160 VLS tubes, 155mm AGS, and NRAM missile launchers give it the long-distance punch it needs.
As far as defense, the Templar is fully AEGIS equipped and able to down low-orbiting satellites and missiles, should it have enough warning. The Templar mounts numerous CIWS and Rolling Airframe Missile launchers, as well as autocannons for close-range anti-boarding party support, and, as the most technological addition to the ship, there are forward and aft Free-Electron-Laser mounts, which, on a particularly favorable weather day, can go as far as to destroy satellites in orbit. All said and done, the Templar ensures that nothing gets through to whatever it sees fit to guard.

Like the Fortknight Cruiser, the back few feet of the Templar's flight deck can angle up to allow for a more treacherous recovery of a RHIB, and then the bottom can rapidly shut to trap the RHIB in once it has entered the bay.
The RHIBs are then hoisted out of the internal bay and placed on storage racks, allowing for up to a total of twelve RHIBs to be stored inside the Templar, suiting it well for Special Forces assaults. Conversely, with eight RHIBs in the storage racks, the internal bay can also house a single large Fast Assault Vessel (ex. MkV SOC), should it meet the dimension criteria.

The Templar is mission-loadout capable and maintains plenty of room in both the RHIB bay and Hangar bays to store and operate various equipments as need be, should they be electronics warfare, special forces, command and control, resupply, helicopter refueling-relays, disaster relief, or all out warfare.

The 155mm Advanced Gun System is capable of firing a variety of rounds, be they kinetic, High Explosive, or even future guided rounds or small missiles. The overall goal of maintaining the cannon on the destroyer is to give it inland fire support of deployed troops.


Amenities:
Crew amenities, for the most part, are as standard with any Pharthan Navy ship. Each individual sailor is allotted their own "Coffin-Rack," which storage underneath the rack, which sits in a tray that can be lifted to expose personal storage space, as well as a personal locker. Each rack space comes with a personal reading light, towel-hangar, emergency egress breathing device stowage, personal six-outlet power strip, and a state-of-the-art Smart Reveille Suite, or SRS.
The SRS monitors the sleep pattern of the sailor, and can be programmed in with the applicable Watchstation Schedule, Morning Routine & Muster, et cetera. For those requiring certain amounts of sleep such as pilots, it can also advise the sailor on when they should be falling sleep. The SRS is a built in computer roughly the size of a smart-phone, built into the rack itself and is tamper resistant. It also includes vibration sensors which are, as a standard, built into the walls and base of the rack, as well as separate remote sensors to be able to differentiate natural ship motion from the motions of the sailor.
To promote healthy sleep, the SRS will begin playing soft music of the sailor's choice to ease them awake within the optimal period prior to their next appointment, as well as emitting "peaceful" light.
In the event the sailor is late for watch or muster, a louder alarm and brighter lights will be emitted.
The speakers for the sounds are directed inward, and additional sound-proofing is provided to prevent disturbing other sailors.

While differing on each ship and in each compartment slightly, each berthing location houses between eight and 12 enlisted sailors. Officer berthings may be singular, double, or a quartet, depending on rank and station. Each berthing space comes with one computer, which, when available, is linked to the ship's internet and unclassified network; internet browsing on this network is often limited for security reasons, though general social media is allowed. A separate web-browser notebook is also provided to allow sailors to download movies, games, videos, et cetera, and more extensive chat with family. While still monitored for security reasons, this is not connected to the ship's unclassified data network and is more free to use.
Each berthing space has an ample amount of electrical outlets and storage space, both communal and personal, to allow for personal gaming systems, and each berthing space has one large flatscreen TV, with space for an extra. Additionally, every berthing space has their own minifridge and microwave oven.
For every forty sailors there is an additional community space, allowing for more activities to include the watching of movies, TV, gaming, et cetera, without disturbing those sleeping at the time.

For every sixteen sailors there is at least one head, to include two showers, two toilet stalls, and three sinks, though some areas may include more based on availability. These are often of stainless steel construction for sanitary reasons, and the shower-stalls are curtained off, though some may include a hard vanity door.

Gym services include rowing machines, various styles of treadmills, weight machines and racks, yoga mats and equipment, sports equipment for any open areas, and more at the request of the ship's recreational officers.
