UNIT COST: $1,600,000,000 (Pelican Lite) $2,000,000,000 (CODAG), $2,500,000,000 (Nuclear)
DPR (Combined): $100,000,000,000

The Pelican-Class is a replenishment ship developed by Zeus Maritime Industries for the Federal Eastern Union Navy, tasked with the mission to resupply ships operating away from bases and on the waves. Although not exactly one of those so-called 'surface combatants', the Pelican-Class is basically what makes a fleet possible: it is a resupplying ship, which is crucial to the fleet's endurance.

The Pelican-Class is no gambler when it comes to design: using proven characteristics widely seen on civilian ships, the Pelican-Class has achieved stability in its design. The twin skeg hull, intended for greater efficiency in resupplying, enables better stability when it comes to the ship itself, while it is said to be better at handling water waste from the warships. Although it is very much capable of ship-to-ship resupplying, it is also capable of resupplying via air, as it is equipped with a flight deck for at least one medium-sized helicopter.

Lessons learned from the Federal Eastern Union Navy's decommissioned Hampton-Class Replenishment Ships, the Pelican-Class has been designed to be more fuel-efficient, and, in a way, become more environment-friendly compared to its predecessors. The double hull structure, for one, is part of this: on an experiment, it brought the result of doubled protection of the hull, reducing the devastation of oil spills.

Variants

  • Standard Variant (CODAG): Conventionally-powered variant. Features all standard characteristics mentioned above.
  • Nuclear-Powered Variant: No differences with the standard variant other than the propulsion method - uses two NR-28G nuclear reactors instead of diesel-gas engines to propel and generate power for the ship.
  • Pelican Lite (CODAG): 25,000-ton Variant of the Pelican-Class's standard variant offered for export. Although no nuclear-powered variants are available, they have the merit of being lighter and more compact.
