Our Mission Statement

Grunnvágr Metal Works is, at present, the sole provider of surface ships to the Rigsforbund Søværnet. We have gained this status because of our consistent pursuit of technological development, excellent quality control, and delivering on our contract obligations in regards to time and budget. So, what does this mean to you, our potential client nation? It means you will have ships with cutting edge technology in your fleet, for an affordable price, and without delays in the construction process due to "difficulties".

Also, unlike some of our competitors, we do not rename venerable designs, ships that cannot stand up to the present high intensity naval environment, and then sell them to unwary nations for massive profit. With Grunnvágr Metal Works, you receive unique ships designed with modern high intensity naval combat in mind and at a reasonable price.





Our Patrons

None as yet




Our Payment Policy

As a matter of course we extend financing to contracting parties until the end of the build period for their order. For orders of multiple classes, the financing provision extends to the end of the longest construction period for all ships ordered. However, we have made the decision to extend discounts under certain tightly defined circumstances. These are:

    Nations that have negotiated a Favored Nation status with the Imperial Union receive a 1% discount
    Nations that have been given Most Favored Nation status by the Imperial Union receive a 2.5% discount
    Nations with a population of under 1 billion citizens receive a 2.5% discount
    Repeat customers receive a 2.5% discount
    Members of anti-slavery and anti-piracy organizations receive a 5% discount

Discounts do "stack", with the smallest applying first.





Our Policy On Reselling Ships

As a general rule, we do not sell ships to another nation without the consent of the Union Government. Therefor, it stands to reason that we ask that our patrons do not sell vessels second hand, or act as middle parties to the acquisition of new vessels, without the express permission of Grunnvágr Metal Works and the Union Government. Violation of this policy will result in the patron being permanently blacklisted and could very well result in military action by the Union Government.




Blacklisted Nations

None at present.




Special Mentions and Thanks

Pharthan: For using his real world expertise to straighten the power plants out.
The Freethinkers: For teaching me a lot about ships and being a good sport about my never-ending hunger for more.
Anemos Major: For creating a truly awesome storefront layout that inspired me and helping me improve the look of my storefront.
Lyras: For being approachable at all times, for anything I needed.
My Customers: For believing enough in me and my products to take the time to place an order.
Plus a whole bunch of others I don't have the space to mention, you know who you are.

Thor class Nuclear-Powered Battleship (BBN)





Introduction:

The Thor class BBN is the ultimate incarnation of the modern battleship; big guns, huge missile capacity, and armour thick enough to shrug off all but the most massive attacks. A single Thor has enough firepower to sink a fleet or effectively render a fleet invulnerable to attack. Construction of a single Thor takes 108 months and costs 56.3 Billion Universal Standard Dollars.




Basic Design:

The Thor class is designed to be the hammer of the fleet, smashing anything that stands in its way. Its dimensions are 550 meters long, 74.16 meters waterline beam (although the internal protections against torpedoes, missiles, and shells reduce internal usable beam to 71.41 meters), a normal draft of 15.9 meters, and displaces a maximum of 539,737 tons. The hull, superstructure, and bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum, a composite material which has the lightness of armour grade aluminum but the toughness of armour grade steel. The aforementioned internal protection system consists of a 11.5” thick belt that utilizes a honeycomb design which allows for greater strength in resisting side torpedo impacts and has the added benefit of miniature crush zones, behind this is the primary crush zone which consists of void space and a honeycomb sub-frame for added structural integrity, after which sits a 39” thick belt of composite armour (which uses tri-modal aluminum armour as its main component but also features other materials to deal with munitions designed to defeat solid metal armour), and finally the honeycomb frame featuring a displaced keel for added protection against torpedoes which the entire armour system is mounted on. Internally, as mentioned above, all horizontal and vertical bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum and structural bulkheads are reinforced in the traditional manner.

The Thor class is designed to berth 2,113 under normal operating conditions and can operate with a skeleton crew of 1,414. Furthermore, the ship can house a single company of Marines and has emergency overflow berths for 710 personnel.




Aviation:

A 5,500 square meter helicopter deck is placed just aft of a hangar capable of housing twelve large naval helicopters internally, which is itself integrated into the superstructure. To aid with landings in rough sea states, a “Bear Trap” style device is installed. Also, gear for launching and recovering UAVs is installed as standard and space is given for twelve such vehicles in addition to VTOL storage.

Magazine space for depth charges and light torpedoes is shared with the ship's own internal magazines for protection against fires and explosions caused by missile hits to the hangar. Aviation gas is housed internally and pumped up into the hangar bay for refueling operations. For protection against fires within the hangar proper, a halon gas system separate from the ship's main fire suppression system is installed.




Artillery:

Six 550mm/64 ETC guns are housed in three gun turrets, one turret just forward of the superstructure and one on the quarterdeck. Each turret is capable of firing at 9 rounds per minute and the guns are rated for elevations of -2 and +45 degrees independent of each other. Maximum range for a standard (basebleed) shell weighing 7,019 pounds is 111.8 kilometers, with ranges for boosted ammunition varying depending on the type of propulsion and other factors. Magazine capacity is 297 rounds per gun.

Twelve 165mm/64 ETC guns are housed in three-gun superfiring turrets flanking the forward and aft sections of the superstructure. Each turret is capable of firing at 150 rounds per minute and the guns rated for elevations of -5 and +60 degrees independent of each other. Maximum range for a standard (basebleed) shell weighing 150 pounds is 58.8 kilometers, with ranges for boosted ammunition varying depending on the type of propulsion and other factors. Magazine capacity is 450 rounds per gun.

Thirteen Mk52 Combination Anti-Missile Defense stations are mounted in pairs forward and aft of the secondary gun mounts, flanking the rear superstructure, on the fantail, and one is mounted far forward on the bow. Each station mounts four 40mm ETC Gatling guns with a maximum rate of fire of 3,600 rounds per minute and 12 anti-missile missiles. This system can engage incoming missiles at a ranges of up to 10 kilometers.

Twelve 25mm ETC naval autocannons; eight in raised twin gun turrets flanking the superstructure forward and aft, and four in single gun mounts superfiring over the forward pairs of Mk52 CAMD. They have a maximum rate of fire of 400 rounds per minute and a range of 7.5 kilometers.




Missiles:

Twenty-four 144-missile (12x12) Mk84 Strategic-Length VLS are mounted forward of the A turret and represent the primary combat firepower of the Thor. Measuring 1.4m wide by 14.4m deep, they are capable of fitting a one very large land attack, anti-ship, or anti-aircraft missile or multi-packing smaller missiles. Each block is surround by a 39” thick belt of tri-modal aluminum to prevent penetration through the side of the block or, in a worst case scenario, to force chain reaction explosions upwards.




Lasers:

One 3.2Mw Carbon Dioxide laser is mounted forward of the citadel. The laser assemblies themselves are installed vertically behind the citadel and are aimed by a mirror ball assembly. Under ideal conditions the laser has a range of 100km and is meant to provide fleet-level defense against ballistic missiles, large supersonic and hypersonic cruise missiles, and even large artillery shells.

Four 500kw Carbon Dioxide CIWS lasers are mounted vertically within the citadel at the extreme corners and are topped by ball mirror assemblies. It is a reliable and fast tracking system that is capable of destroying large anti-ship missiles and small artillery shells.




Underwater Weaponry:

For use against mines and torpedoes, especially in poor sonar conditions, eight 50mm railguns firing supercavitating slugs are mounted. The railguns are mounted as pairs flanking the mid superstructure and just aft of the A turret. The railguns have a maximum range of 150m and have a maximum rate of fire of 60 rounds per minute.

Four 1,000mm torpedo tubes are mounted in pairs above the waterline and at the forward extreme of the bow on either side. Magazine capacity is 30 super heavyweight torpedoes and 120 lightweight torpedoes (this magazine capacity is taken up by “interceptor” torpedoes in the Rigsforbund Søværnet).




Countermeasures:

The ship mounts ten Mk10 mortar decoy launchers capable of launching a number of anti-missile and anti-torpedo spoofing rounds. Further, it is possible to launch shore bombardment rounds from the 12” tubes, although no such munitions are yet deployed with the Rigsforbund Søværnet.

For electronic countermeasures, the ship uses the Mk650 “Doberman” Combined Electronic Warfare Suite. Not only is the system capable of the complete array of radar spoofing, but it can jam mid-course correction and other telemetry links plus use the ship's radars as directed energy weapons in certain circumstances.

Finally, the Mk15 towed decoy is installed for use against torpedoes. Fourteen total decoys are carried aboard ship and seven can be deployed at a time to mimic the Thor's propulsion.




Sensors:

The primary means of threat detection is the FUOR-24D I-band LPI radar system. Two sets of four panels are mounted on the forward mack in order to provide three dimensional tracking and targeting of up to 1,728 simultaneous air and surface targets at a range of up to 780 kilometers (where the horizon allows).

As a backup to the FUOR-24D, the FUOR-18D K-band NPI radar is installed on the aft mack with four omnidirectional panels. It provides all-weather targeting and tracking out to 362 kilometers and allows for the simultaneous tracking and engagement of 576 contacts.

The FRIR-70 E-band phased array radar is also installed on the forward mack and allows for tracking and targeting of edge-of-space and orbital threats to the fleet.

Over-the-horizon tracking and targeting is provided primarily by two surface effect radar sets. The FSR-3D is comprised of four super-directional radars (flanking the forward and aft macks) which provide tracking and targeting of airborne and surface targets out to 370 kilometers. The second surface effect radar is the FSR-4D; because it is only a single array it is limited to 140 kilometers and its targeting abilities are limited; it is essentially a backup to the primary set.

Line-of-site tracking and targeting is provided by two Mk5 LIDAR arrays. Short range fire direction is provided by three FUOR-40 LPI radars.

Subsurface tracking is provided by a bow-mounted UG-48 sonar array and UG-60 towed-line array. Also mounted are two UG-600 flank arrays, which allow for the triangulation of passive signals in conjunction with with UG-48 bow array. Supplementing the sonar arrays is the UGL-4 blue-green LADAR array, which has a range and resolution comparable to the UG-48. Tied directly to the ship's underwater defenses is the UGL-6 close-in LADAR array, which is a short range and high precision array meant to track and target point threats such as torpedoes and mines.




Command and Control:

As the Thor is the heart of any fleet, the 'Yggdrasil' Strategic Command and Control Suite. Taking the concept of standard theatre C4i suites a step further, it allows for the collection and processing of data from all available sources worldwide; this ability is invaluable as it allows a fleet commander to be fully informed before committing to combat and the real time update features keep a fleet commander apprised of any additional threats during combat. Perhaps what is most astonishing is that the 'Yggdrasil' SCCS can actually take over another ship's command and control functions should they be unable to do so, which gives a fleet an invaluable advantage in redundancy.

Derived from the Freethinkers' NG04/05 Naval Gunnery Suite, the Mk85 NGS continues the tradition of superlative gunfire control that allows standard artillery to achieve accuracies that were only previously possible with guided munitions.




Accommodations and Facilities:

The Thor is a massive ship with a relatively small crew, so it stands to reason that the facilities for morale and recreation would not be out of place in a 5 star hotel. All messes and wardrooms are equipped with the largest and most advanced HDTVs on the market, as well as the latest and greatest in other home theater peripherals. Further, there are several fully equipped gyms, three indoor gunnery ranges, two cinemas, and the ability to install other recreational facilities in unused areas.

All enlisted (Navy and Marine) and junior NCOs are housed in four man berths, senior NCOs and cadets in two man berths, and officers have berths to themselves of various size depending on their rank. Every berth enjoys an HDTV, video player, 60ghz gigabyte wireless LAN connection with full military encryption, and secure storage for laptops in lightly armoured compartments.




Propulsion:

Power is provided by two 500Mw Ascension Nuclear supercritical water reactors.

Propulsion is provided by two steam turbines supplying 495Mw to six omnidirectional heavy waterjets. Cruise speed is 28 knots, normal top speed is 32 knots, and the ship is capable of producing flat-out sprints of 39 knots for short distances. Four bow thrusters are also installed for maneuvering in congested areas.

Refueling takes place every 15-20 years, although the Rigsforbund insists that for safety and control reasons that customers bring their ships to an Union port for refueling.

Gunnr class Nuclear-Powered Aircraft Carrier (CVN)





Introduction:

Grunnvágr Metal Works is pleased to make available for export the Gunnr class CVN, the first aircraft carrier in the world able to launch navalized medium bombers. The Gunnr class is the long arm of the Rigsforbund Søværnet and is almost certainly the most powerful example of naval fixed-wing aviation afloat. A single Gunnr takes 102 months to build and costs 53.2 Billion Universal Standard Dollars.




Basic Design:

The Gunnr class is designed to give a fleet aerial striking power via navalized medium bombers. Its dimensions are 565 meters long, 75.51 meters waterline beam (although the internal protections against torpedoes, missiles, and shells reduce internal usable beam to 72.72 meters), a normal draft of 20.14 meters, and displaces a maximum of 509,382 tons. The hull, superstructure, and bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum, a composite material which has the lightness of armour grade aluminum but the toughness of armour grade steel. The aforementioned internal protection system consists of a 9.85” thick belt that utilizes a honeycomb design which allows for greater strength in resisting side torpedo impacts and has the added benefit of miniature crush zones, behind this is the primary crush zone which consists of void space and a honeycomb sub-frame for added structural integrity, after which sits a 10” thick belt of composite armour (which uses tri-modal aluminum armour as its main component but also features other materials to deal with munitions designed to defeat solid metal armour), and finally the honeycomb frame featuring a displaced keel for added protection against torpedoes which the entire armour system is mounted on. Internally, as mentioned above, all horizontal and vertical bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum and structural bulkheads are reinforced in the traditional manner.

The Gunnr class is designed to berth 6,700 under normal operating conditions and can operate with a skeleton crew of 5,200. Furthermore, the ship can house a single battalion of Marines and has emergency overflow berths for 2,257 personnel.




Aviation:

A 63,300 square meter flight deck, built from 10” thick tri-modal aluminum armour, is the centerpiece of the Gunnr class. A small, stealthy island is installed on the starboard side of the ship in order to reduce wind vortices that can interfere with flight operations. Opposite the island is a dedicated VTOL landing area for helicopters and jumpjets. Four normal size lifts are provided for fighters and two extra large lifts are provided for navalized bombers. Two EM catapults are installed on the crossdeck and two extra-long heavy duty EM catapults are installed along the axis of the keel to launch bombers.

The Gunnrs has a two-deck hangar, with the bottom deck specifically designed to house, maintain, and arm the bombers. There is sufficient magazine space to insure ten full combat sorties can be conducted by all aircraft on board. Designed capacity is for 288 light combat aircraft (fighters and fighter-bombers), 24 navalized medium bombers, 24 utility helicopters, and 12 navalized tactical transports.




Artillery:

Eleven Mk52 Combination Anti-Missile Defense stations are mounted in recessed open air divots just below the flight deck; one at the bow, two at the quarterdeck, and the remaining eight evenly distributed along both flanks. Each station mounts four 40mm ETC Gatling guns with a maximum rate of fire of 3,600 round per minute and 12 anti-missile missiles. This system can engage incoming missiles at a range of up to 10 kilometers.




Missiles:

Three 96-missile (12x8) Mk84 Tactical-Length VLS are mounted forward of the island and are the Gunnr' primary means of defense. Measuring 1.4m wide by 12.25m deep, they are capable of fitting a single large land attack, anti-ship, or anti-aircraft missile or multi-packing smaller missiles. Each block is surround by a 18” thick belt of tri-modal aluminum to prevent penetration through the side of the block or, in a worst case scenario, to force chain reaction explosions upwards.




Underwater Weaponry:

For use against mines and torpedoes, especially in poor sonar conditions, six 50mm railguns firing supercavitating slugs are mounted in between the Mk52 CAMD stations along the flanks. The railguns have a maximum range of 150m and have a maximum rate of fire of 60 rounds per minute.




Countermeasures:

The ship mounts eight Mk10 mortar decoy launchers capable of launching a number of anti-missile and anti-torpedo spoofing rounds. Further, it is possible to launch shore bombardment rounds from the 12” tubes, although no such munitions are yet deployed with the Rigsforbund Søværnet.

For electronic countermeasures, the ship uses the Mk650 “Doberman” Combined Electronic Warfare Suite. Not only is the system capable of the complete array of radar spoofing, but it can jam mid-course correction and other telemetry links plus use the ship's radars as directed energy weapons in certain circumstances.

Finally, the Mk15 towed decoy is installed for use against torpedoes. Fourteen total decoys are carried aboard ship and seven can be deployed at a time to mimic the propulsion of various ships (this is a programmable function).




Sensors:

The primary means of threat detection is the FUOR-24D I-band LPI radar system. One sets of four panels are mounted on the island in order to provide three dimensional tracking and target of up to 1,728 simultaneous air and surface targets at a range of up to 780 kilometers (where the horizon allows).

As a backup to the FUOR-24D, the FUOR-18D K-band NPI radar is also installed on the island with four omnidirectional panels. It provides all-weather targeting and tracking out to 362 kilometers and allows for the simultaneous tracking and engagement of 576 contacts.

Line-of-site tracking and targeting is provided by four Mk5 LIDAR arrays. Short range fire direction is provided by four FUOR-40 LPI radars.

Subsurface tracking is provided by a bow-mounted UG-48 sonar array. Supplementing the sonar array is the UGL-4 blue-green LADAR array, which has a range and resolution comparable to the UG-48. Tied directly to the ship's underwater defenses is the UGL-6 close-in LADAR array, which is a short range and high precision array meant to track and target point threats such as torpedoes and mines.




Command and Control:

As the Gunnr class is the obvious nerve center for aerial warfare, the 'Valkyrie' Aerospace Warfare Management Suit is installed. Capable of coordinating the aerial assets of an entire fleet and even non-naval aircraft within the theatre of operations, the 'Valkyrie' is a superlative example of what makes a carrier work as it should.

Derived from the Freethinkers' NG04/05 Naval Gunnery Suite, the Mk85 NGS continues the tradition of superlative gunfire control that allows standard artillery to achieve accuracies that were only previously possible with guided munitions.




Accommodations and Facilities:

The Gunnr is a large ship with a relatively small crew, so it stands to reason that the facilities for morale and recreation are very generous. All messes and wardrooms are equipped with the largest and most advanced HDTVs on the market, as well as the latest and greatest in other home theater peripherals. Further, there are two fully equipped gyms, an indoor gunnery range, a cinema, and the ability to install other recreational facilities in unused areas.

Every berth enjoys an HDTV, video player, 60ghz gigabyte wireless LAN connection with full military encryption, and secure storage for laptops in lightly armoured compartments.




Propulsion:

Power is provided by three 400Mw Ascension Nuclear supercritical water reactors.

Propulsion is provided by three steam turbines supplying 478Mw to nine omnidirectional heavy waterjets. Cruise speed is 28 knots, normal top speed is 32 knots, and the ship is capable of producing flat-out sprints of 36 knots for short distances. Four bow thrusters are also installed for maneuvering in congested areas.

Refueling takes place every 15-20 years, although the Empire insists that for safety and control reasons that customers bring their ships to an Union port for refueling.

Mjolnir class Nuclear-Powered Battlecruiser (BCN)





Introduction:

The Mjolnir class BCN has been designed specifically to attack and destroy important strategic targets in a timely fashion. A lone Mjolnir can sink an unwary task group and a squadron would destroy most task forces. Construction of a single Mjolnir takes 44 months and costs 22.8 Billion Universal Standard Dollars.




Basic Design:

The Mjolnir class is a battlecruiser designed to fill the space between cruiser and all-up ships of the line. Its dimensions are 450 meters long, 49.85 meters waterline beam (although the internal protections against torpedoes, missiles, and shells reduce internal usable beam to 48 meters), a normal draft of 15.9 meters, and displaces a maximum of 218,043 tons. The hull, superstructure, and bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum, a composite material which has the lightness of armour grade aluminum but the toughness of armour grade steel. The aforementioned internal protection system consists of a 8.25” thick belt that utilizes a honeycomb design which allows for greater strength in resisting side torpedo impacts and has the added benefit of miniature crush zones, behind this is the primary crush zone which consists of void space and a honeycomb sub-frame for added structural integrity, after which sits a 28” thick belt of composite armour (which uses tri-modal aluminum armour as its main component but also features other materials to deal with munitions designed to defeat solid metal armour), and finally the honeycomb frame featuring a displaced keel for added protection against torpedoes which the entire armour system is mounted on. Internally, as mentioned above, all horizontal and vertical bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum and structural bulkheads are reinforced in the traditional manner.

The Mjolnir class is designed to berth 1,062 under normal operating conditions and can operate with a skeleton crew of 711. Furthermore, the ship can house a single company of Marines and has emergency overflow berths for 357 personnel.




Aviation:

A 2,400 square meter helicopter deck is placed just aft of a hangar capable of housing ten large naval helicopters internally, which is itself integrated into the superstructure. To aid with landings in rough sea states, a “Bear Trap” style device is installed. Also, gear for launching and recovering UAVs is installed as standard and space is given for ten such vehicles in addition to VTOL storage.

Magazine space for depth charges and light torpedoes is shared with the ship's own internal magazines for protection against fires and explosions caused by missile hits to the hangar. Aviation gas is housed internally and pumped up into the hangar bay for refueling operations. For protection against fires within the hangar proper, a halon gas system separate from the ship's main fire suppression system is installed.




Artillery:

Six 410mm/60 ETC guns are housed in three gun turrets, one turret just forward of the superstructure and one on the quarterdeck. Each turret is capable of firing at 24 rounds per minute and the guns are rated for elevations of -5 and +45 degrees independent of each other. Maximum range for a standard (basebleed) shell weighing 2,700 pounds is 93.2 kilometers, with ranges for boosted ammunition varying depending on the type of propulsion and other factors. Magazine capacity is 500 rounds per gun.

Eight Mk52 Combination Anti-Missile Defense stations are mounted in pairs atop the forward bridge, flanking the aft mack, and on either side of the superstructure forward and aft of the rail mortar. Each station mounts four 40mm ETC Gatling guns with a maximum rate of fire of 3,600 round per minute and 12 anti-missile missiles. This system can engage incoming missiles at a range of up to 10 kilometers.

Five 25mm ETC naval autocannons, two mounted on each side of the forward superstructure and one on the fantail, for general purpose close in protection duties. They have a maximum rate of fire of 400 rounds per minute and a range of 7.5 kilometers.




Missiles:

Ten 144-missile (12x12) Mk84 Strategic-Length VLS are mounted forward of the A turret and represent the primary combat firepower of the Mjolnir. Measuring 1.4m wide by 14.4m deep, they are capable of fitting a single very large land attack, anti-ship, or anti-aircraft missile or multi-packing smaller missiles. Each block is surround by a 28” thick belt of tri-modal aluminum to prevent penetration through the side of the block or, in a worst case scenario, to force chain reaction explosions upwards.




Land Attack Railguns:

Two 105mm Rail Mortars are mounted on the centerline superfiring over the 16” turrets. Each rail mortar is capable of 4 rounds per minute rate of fire and is rated for +0 to +80 elevation at the extremes. A single sabot is capable of hitting land targets 400km distant and has a penetration capability on par with that of a 2,000 pound bunker busting bomb.




Underwater Weaponry:

For use against mines and torpedoes, especially in poor sonar conditions, six 50mm railguns firing supercavitating slugs are mounted. The railguns are mounted as pairs forward of the VLS array, on either flank of the superstructure amidship, and flanking the X turret. The railguns have a maximum range of 150m and have a maximum rate of fire of 60 rounds per minute.

Four 1,000mm torpedo tubes are mounted in pairs above the waterline and at the forward extreme of the bow on either side. Magazine capacity is 24 super heavyweight torpedoes and 100 lightweight torpedoes (this magazine capacity is taken up by “interceptor” torpedoes in the Rigsforbund Søværnet).




Countermeasures:

The ship mounts six Mk10 mortar decoy launchers capable of launching a number of anti-missile and anti-torpedo spoofing rounds. Further, it is possible to launch shore bombardment rounds from the 12” tubes, although no such munitions are yet deployed with the Rigsforbund Søværnet.

For electronic countermeasures, the ship uses the Mk650 “Doberman” Combined Electronic Warfare Suite. Not only is the system capable of the complete array of radar spoofing, but it can jam mid-course correction and other telemetry links plus use the ship's radars as directed energy weapons in certain circumstances.

Finally, the Mk15 towed decoy is installed for use against torpedoes. Fourteen total decoys are carried aboard ship and seven can be deployed at a time to mimic the propulsion of various ships (this is a programmable function).




Sensors:

The primary means of threat detection is the FUOR-24D I-band LPI radar system. Two sets of four panels are mounted on the forward mack in order to provide three dimensional tracking and target of up to 1,728 simultaneous air and surface targets at a range of up to 780 kilometers (where the horizon allows).

As a backup to the APAR-24D, the FUOR-18D K-band NPI radar is installed on the aft mack with four omnidirectional panels. It provides all-weather targeting and tracking out to 362 kilometers and allows for the simultaneous tracking and engagement of 576 contacts.

The FUOR-70 E-band phased array radar is also installed on the aft mack and allows for tracking and targeting of edge-of-space and orbital threats to the fleet.

Over-the-horizon tracking and targeting is provided primarily by two surface effect radar sets. The FSR-3D is comprised of three super-directional radars (one on the forward part of the superstructure and two on the aft mack) which provide tracking and targeting of airborne and surface targets out to 370 kilometers. The second surface effect radar is the FSR-4D; because it is only a single array it is limited to 140 kilometers and its targeting abilities are limited, it is essentially a backup to the primary set.

Line-of-site tracking and targeting is provided by four Mk5 LIDAR arrays. Short range fire direction is provided by four FUOR-40 LPI radars.

Subsurface tracking is provided by a bow-mounted UG-48 sonar array and UG-60 towed-line array. Supplementing the sonar arrays is the UGL-4 blue-green LADAR array, which has a range and resolution comparable to the UG-48. Tied directly to the ship's underwater defenses is the UGL-6 close-in LADAR array, which is a short range and high precision array mean to track and target point threats such as torpedoes and mines.




Command and Control:

As the Mjolnir is chiefly responsible for striking at high value targets, an 'Odin' Theatre Warfare Coordination Suite is installed. It is a less capable version of the 'Yggdrasil” Strategic Command and Control Suite installed on the Mjolnir class BBN and gives a fleet redundant all aspect C4i capability.

Derived from the Freethinkers' NG04/05 Naval Gunnery Suite, the Mk85 NGS continues the tradition of superlative gunfire control that allows standard artillery to achieve accuracies that were only previously possible with guided munitions.


Accommodations and Facilities:

The Mjolnir is a large ship with a relatively small crew, so it stands to reason that the facilities for morale and recreation are very generous. All messes and wardrooms are equipped with the largest and most advanced HDTVs on the market, as well as the latest and greatest in other home theater peripherals. Further, there are two fully equipped gyms, an indoor gunnery range, a cinema, and the ability to install other recreational facilities in unused areas.

All enlisted (Navy and Marine) and junior NCOs are housed in four man berths, senior NCOs and cadets in two man berths, and officers have berths to themselves of various size depending on their rank. Every berth enjoys an HDTV, video player, 60ghz gigabyte wireless LAN connection with full military encryption, and secure storage for laptops in lightly armoured compartments.




Propulsion:

Power is provided by a 525Mw Ascension Nuclear supercritical water reactor.

Propulsion is provided by two steam turbines supplying 292Mw to six omnidirectional heavy waterjets. Cruise speed is 28 knots, normal top speed is 32 knots, and the ship is capable of producing flat-out sprints of 37.5 knots for short distances. Four bow thrusters are also installed for maneuvering in congested areas.

Refueling takes place every 15-20 years, although the Rigsforbund insists that for safety and control reasons that customers bring their ships to an Union port for refueling.

Fenris class Nuclear-Powered Heavy Cruiser (CAN)





Introduction:

The Fenris class CAN is designed to be the final word in naval fire support and rapid dominance operations. A squadron of these ships can overwhelm and destroy heavily fortified land defenses or break the back of a conventional fleet's escort component. Construction of a single Fenris takes 21 months and costs 9.6 Billion Universal Standard Dollars.




Basic Design:

The Fenris class is a heavy cruiser designed from the keel up to provide support to land operations and rapidly overwhelm sub-capital ships. Its dimensions are 350 meters long, 39.36 meters waterline beam (although the internal protections against torpedoes, missiles, and shells reduce internal usable beam to 37.91 meters), a normal draft of 12.59 meters, and displaces a maximum of 92,324 tons. The hull, superstructure, and bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum, a composite material which has the lightness of armour grade aluminum but the toughness of armour grade steel. The aforementioned internal protection system consists of a 4” thick belt that utilizes a honeycomb design which allows for greater strength in resisting side torpedo impacts and has the added benefit of miniature crush zones, behind this is the primary crush zone which consists of void space and a honeycomb sub-frame for added structural integrity, after which sits a 14” thick belt of composite armour (which uses tri-modal aluminum armour as its main component but also features other materials to deal with munitions designed to defeat solid metal armour), and finally the honeycomb frame featuring a displaced keel for added protection against torpedoes which the entire armour system is mounted on. Internally, as mentioned above, all horizontal and vertical bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum and structural bulkheads are reinforced in the traditional manner.

The Fenris class is designed to berth 552 under normal operating conditions and can operate with a skeleton crew of 369. Furthermore, the ship can house a single company of Marines and has emergency overflow berths for 186 personnel.




Aviation:

A 1,600 square meter helicopter deck is placed just aft of a hangar capable of housing six large naval helicopters internally, which is itself integrated into the superstructure. To aid with landings in rough sea states, a “Bear Trap” style device is installed. Also, gear for launching and recovering UAVs is installed as standard and space is given for six such vehicles in addition to VTOL storage.

Magazine space for depth charges and light torpedoes is shared with the ship's own internal magazines for protection against fires and explosions caused by missile hits to the hangar. Aviation gas is housed internally and pumped up into the hangar bay for refueling operations. For protection against fires within the hangar proper, a halon gas system separate from the ship's main fire suppression system is installed.




Artillery:

Six 275mm/60 ETC guns are housed in three gun turrets, one turret just forward of the superstructure and one on the quarterdeck. Each turret is capable of firing at 90 rounds per minute and the guns rated for elevations of -5 and +45 degrees independent of each other. Maximum range for a standard (basebleed) shell weighing 150 pounds is 75.2 kilometers, with ranges for boosted ammunition varying depending on the type of propulsion and other factors. Magazine capacity is 270 rounds per gun.

Eight Mk52 Combination Anti-Missile Defense stations are mounted in pairs atop the forward bridge, flanking the aft mack, and on either side of the superstructure forward and aft of the rail mortar. Each station mounts four 40mm ETC Gatling guns with a maximum rate of fire of 3,600 rounds per minute and 12 anti-missile missiles. This system can engage incoming missiles at a ranges of up to 10 kilometers.

Five 25mm ETC naval autocannons, two mounted on each side of the forward superstructure and one on the fantail, for general purpose close in protection duties. They have a maximum rate of fire of 400 rounds per minute and a range of 7.5 kilometers.




Missiles:

Four 144-missile (12x12) Mk84 Tactical-Length VLS are mounted forward of the A turret and represent the primary combat firepower of the Indomitable. Measuring 1.4m wide by 12.25m deep, they are capable of fitting a single large land attack, anti-ship, or anti-aircraft missile or multi-packing smaller missiles. Each block is surround by a 14” thick belt of tri-modal aluminum to prevent penetration through the side of the block or, in a worst case scenario, to force chain reaction explosions upwards.




Land Attack Railguns:

Two 105mm Rail Mortars are mounted amidship flanking the superstructure. Each rail mortar is capable of 4 rounds per minute rate of fire and is rated for +0 to +80 elevation at the extremes. A single sabot is capable of hitting land targets 400km distant and has a penetration capability on par with that of a 2,000 pound bunker busting bomb.




Underwater Weaponry:

For use against mines and torpedoes, especially in poor sonar conditions, six 50mm railguns firing supercavitating slugs are mounted. The railguns are mounted as pairs forward of the VLS array, on either flank of the superstructure amidship, and flanking the X turret. The railguns have a maximum range of 150m and have a maximum rate of fire of 60 rounds per minute.

Four 660mm torpedo tubes are mounted in pairs above the waterline and at the forward extreme of the bow on either side. Magazine capacity is 24 heavyweight torpedoes and 80 lightweight torpedoes (this magazine capacity is taken up by “interceptor” torpedoes in the Rigsforbund Søværnet).




Countermeasures:

The ship mounts six Mk10 mortar decoy launchers capable of launching a number of anti-missile and anti-torpedo spoofing rounds. Further, it is possible to launch shore bombardment rounds from the 12” tubes, although no such munitions are yet deployed with the Rigsforbund Søværnet.

For electronic countermeasures, the ship uses the Mk650 “Doberman” Combined Electronic Warfare Suite. Not only is the system capable of the complete array of radar spoofing, but it can jam mid-course correction and other telemetry links plus use the ship's radars as directed energy weapons in certain circumstances.

Finally, the Mk15 towed decoy is installed for use against torpedoes. Fourteen total decoys are carried aboard ship and seven can be deployed at a time to mimic the propulsion of various ships (this is a programmable function).




Sensors:

The primary means of threat detection is the FUOR-24D I-band LPI radar system. Two sets of four panels are mounted on the forward mack in order to provide three dimensional tracking and target of up to 1,728 simultaneous air and surface targets at a range of up to 780 kilometers (where the horizon allows).

As a backup to the FUOR-24D, the FUOR-18D K-band NPI radar is installed on the aft mack with four omnidirectional panels. It provides all-weather targeting and tracking out to 362 kilometers and allows for the simultaneous tracking and engagement of 576 contacts.

The FRIR-70 E-band phased array radar is also installed on the aft mack and allows for tracking and targeting of edge-of-space and orbital threats to the fleet.

Over-the-horizon tracking and targeting is provided primarily by two surface effect radar sets. The FSR-3D is comprised of three super-directional radars (one on the forward part of the superstructure and two on the aft mack) which provide tracking and targeting of airborne and surface targets out to 370 kilometers. The second surface effect radar is the FSR-4D; because it is only a single array it is limited to 140 kilometers and its targeting abilities are limited, it is essentially a backup to the primary set.

Line-of-site tracking and targeting is provided by four Mk5 LIDAR arrays. Short range fire direction is provided by four FUOR-40 LPI radars.

Subsurface tracking is provided by a bow-mounted UG-48 sonar array and UG-60 towed-line array. Supplementing the sonar arrays is the UGL-4 blue-green LADAR array, which has a range and resolution comparable to the UG-48. Tied directly to the ship's underwater defenses is the UGL-6 close-in LADAR array, which is a short range and high precision array mean to track and target point threats such as torpedoes and mines.




Command and Control:

As the Fenris is primarily designed with the land attack role in mind, the ship is fitted with the 'Berserker' Assault Coordination Command Suite. Combining the functions of the 'Yggdrasil' Theatre C4i Suite with data and communications links for coordination with troops undertaking amphibious and land operations, the 'Berserker' ACCS allows for timely and pinpoint support for troops on the ground.

Derived from the Freethinkers' NG04/05 Naval Gunnery Suite, the Mk85 NGS continues the tradition of superlative gunfire control that allows standard artillery to achieve accuracies that were only previously possible with guided munitions.




Accommodations and Facilities:

The Fenris is a large ship with a relatively small crew, so it stands to reason that the facilities for morale and recreation are very generous. All messes and wardrooms are equipped with the largest and most advanced HDTVs on the market, as well as the latest and greatest in other home theater peripherals. Further, there are two fully equipped gyms, an indoor gunnery range, a cinema, and the ability to install other recreational facilities in unused areas.

All enlisted (Navy and Marine) and junior NCOs are housed in four man berths, senior NCOs and cadets in two man berths, and officers have berths to themselves of various size depending on their rank. Every berth enjoys an HDTV, video player, 60ghz gigabyte wireless LAN connection with full military encryption, and secure storage for laptops in lightly armoured compartments.




Propulsion:

Power is provided by a 350Mw Ascension Nuclear supercritical water reactor.

Propulsion is provided by two steam turbines supplying 234Mw to six omnidirectional heavy waterjets. Cruise speed is 28 knots, normal top speed is 32 knots, and the ship is capable of producing flat-out sprints of 38.5 knots for short distances. Four bow thrusters are also installed for maneuvering in congested areas.

Refueling takes place every 15-20 years, although the Union insists that for safety and control reasons that customers bring their ships to an Union port for refueling.

Ukuelige class Nuclear-Powered Guided Missile Cruiser (CGN)





Introduction:

The Ukuelige class CGN represents the state of the art in aerial warfare management and defense. A single twelve-ship squadron is quite capable of gutting all but the largest and most concerted attacks against a fleet the Ukuelige defends. Construction of a single Ukuelige takes 21 months and costs 9.6 Billion Universal Standard Dollars.




Basic Design:

The Ukuelige class is guided missile cruiser design that is meant to operate as a fleet's shield against aerial attack. Its dimensions are 350 meters long, 39.36 meters waterline beam (although the internal protections against torpedoes, missiles, and shells reduce internal usable beam to 37.91 meters), a normal draft of 12.59 meters, and displaces a maximum of 92,324 tons. The hull, superstructure, and bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum, a composite material which has the lightness of armour grade aluminum but the toughness of armour grade steel. The aforementioned internal protection system consists of a 4” thick belt that utilizes a honeycomb design which allows for greater strength in resisting side torpedo impacts and has the added benefit of miniature crush zones, behind this is the primary crush zone which consists of void space and a honeycomb sub-frame for added structural integrity, after which sits a 14” thick belt of composite armour (which uses tri-modal aluminum armour as its main component but also features other materials to deal with munitions designed to defeat solid metal armour), and finally the honeycomb frame featuring a displaced keel for added protection against torpedoes which the entire armour system is mounted on.

Aviation gas is housed internally and pumped up into the hangar bay for refueling operations. For protection against fires within the hangar proper, a halon gas system separate from the ship's main fire suppression system is installed.




Artillery:

Six 165mm/64 ETC guns are housed in three-gun turrets, one turret just forward of the superstructure and one on the quarterdeck. Each turret is capable of firing at 150 rounds per minute and the are guns rated for elevations of -5 and +60 degrees independent of each other. Maximum range for a standard (basebleed) shell weighing 150 pounds is 58.8 kilometers, with ranges for boosted ammunition varying depending on the type of propulsion and other factors. Magazine capacity is 450 rounds per gun.

Eight Mk52 Combination Anti-Missile Defense stations are mounted in pairs atop the forward bridge, flanking the aft mack, and on either side of the superstructure forward and aft of the 3.2Mw laser. Each station mounts four 40mm ETC Gatling guns with a maximum rate of fire of 3,600 round per minute and 12 anti-missile missiles. This system can engage incoming missiles at a range of up to 10 kilometers.

Five 25mm ETC naval autocannons, two mounted on each side of the forward superstructure and one on the fantail, for general purpose close in protection duties. They have a maximum rate of fire of 400 rounds per minute and a range of 7.5 kilometers.

Each block is surround by a 14” thick belt of tri-modal aluminum to prevent penetration through the side of the block or, in a worst case scenario, to force chain reaction explosions upwards.




Lasers:

Two 3.2Mw Carbon Dioxide lasers are mounted amidship flanking either side of the superstructure. The laser assemblies themselves are installed vertically behind the belt and are aimed by a mirror ball assembly. Under ideal conditions the laser has a range of 100km and is meant to provide fleet-level defense against ballistic missiles, large supersonic and hypersonic cruise missiles, and even large artillery shells.




Underwater Weaponry:

For use against mines and torpedoes, especially in poor sonar conditions, six 50mm railguns firing supercavitating slugs are mounted. The railguns are mounted as pairs forward of the VLS array, on either flank of the superstructure amidship, and flanking the X turret. The railguns have a maximum range of 150m and have a maximum rate of fire of 60 rounds per minute.

Four 660mm torpedo tubes are mounted in pairs above the waterline and at the forward extreme of the bow on either side. Magazine capacity is 24 heavyweight torpedoes and 80 lightweight torpedoes (this magazine capacity is taken up by “interceptor” torpedoes in the Rigsforbund Søværnet).

Command and Control:

As befitting an aerial defense ship, the Ukuelige class boasts the 'Valhalla' Area Warfare Command System, which allows the ship to link with other ships in a fleet to create a coordinated defense umbrella that can track, target, and engage up to 24,000 separate targets.

The Mk85 NGS is a gunfire control system that uses multiple active and passive sensor inputs to direct and adjust fire, thereby giving normal shells an accuracy level of GPS-guided shells.




Accommodations and Facilities:

The Ukuelige is a large ship with a relatively small crew, so it stands to reason that the facilities for morale and recreation are very generous. All messes and wardrooms are equipped with the largest and most advanced HDTVs on the market, as well as the latest and greatest in other home theater peripherals.

Berserker class Nuclear-Powered Guided Missile Destroyer (DDGN)





Introduction:

The Berserker class DDGN is quite possibly the most advanced destroyer in the world. The Berserker class is the workhorse of the Rigsforbund Søværnet surface fleet and represents one of the finest ships the Empire is able to produce. A single Berserker class DDGN takes approximately one year to construct and costs 4.6 Billion Universal Standard Dollars.




Basic Design:

The Berserker class is a multipurpose guided missile destroyer designed to act as the backbone of any fleet. Its dimensions are 275 meters long, 29.28 meters maximum beam (although the internal protections against torpedoes, missiles, and shells reduce internal usable beam to 28.2 meters), a normal draft of 9.16 meters, and displaces a maximum of 43,900 tons. The hull, superstructure, and bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum, a composite material which has the lightness of armour grade aluminum but the toughness of armour grade steel. The aforementioned internal protection system consists of a 2” thick belt that utilizes a honeycomb design which allows for greater strength in resisting side torpedo impacts and has the added benefit of miniature crush zones, behind this is the primary crush zone which consists of void space and a honeycomb sub-frame for added structural integrity, after which sits a 7” thick belt of composite armour (which uses tri-modal aluminum armour as its main component but also features other materials to deal with munitions designed to defeat solid metal armour), and finally the honeycomb frame featuring a displaced keel for added protection against torpedoes which the entire armour system is mounted on. Internally, as mentioned above, all horizontal and vertical bulkheads are constructed of tri-modal aluminum and structural bulkheads are reinforced in the traditional manner.

The Berserker class is designed to berth 390 under normal operating conditions and can operate with a skeleton crew of 260. Furthermore, the ship can house a full company of Marines and has emergency overflow berths for 130 personnel.




Aviation:

An 800 square meter helicopter deck is placed just aft of a hangar capable of housing three medium helicopters internally, which is itself integrated into the superstructure. To aid with landings in rough sea states, a “Bear Trap” style device is installed.

Magazine space for depth charges and light torpedoes is shared with the ship's own internal magazines for protection against fires and explosions caused by missile hits to the hangar. Aviation gas is housed internally and pumped up into the hangar bay for refueling operations. For protection against fires within the hangar proper, a halon gas system separate from the ship's main fire suppression system is installed.




Artillery:

Two 165mm/64 ETC guns are housed in single gun turrets on the far ends of the ship's hull, they are each capable of firing at a rate of 50 rounds per minute and are rated for elevations of -5 and +60 degrees at the extremes. Maximum range for a standard (basebleed) shell weighing 150 pounds is 58.8 kilometers, with ranges for boosted ammunition varying depending on the type of propulsion and other factors. Magazine capacity is 400 rounds per gun.

Six Mk52 Combination Anti-Missile Defense stations are mounted on pairs at the superstructure, on top of the hangar, and aft of the Y turret on the fantail. Each station mounts four 40mm ETC Gatling guns with a maximum rate of fire of 3,600 round per minute and 12 anti-missile missiles. This system can engage incoming missiles at a range of up to 10 kilometers.

Four 25mm ETC naval autocannons, two on each side of the superstructure, for general purpose close in protection duties. They have a maximum rate of fire of 400 rounds per minute and a range of 7.5 kilometers.




Missiles:

Three 144-missile (12x12) Mk84 Tactical-Length VLS are mounted forward of the superstructure and represent the primary combat firepower of the Berserker. Measuring 1.4m wide by 12.25m deep, they are capable of fitting a single very large land attack, anti-ship, or anti-aircraft missile or multi-packing smaller missiles. Each block is surround by a 7” thick belt of tri-modal aluminum to prevent penetration through the side of the block or, in a worst case scenario, to force chain reaction explosions upwards.

Two 72-missile (12x6) Mk84 Tactical-Length VLS are mounted on the flanks of the superstructure amidship and are primarily intended to hold rocket-boosted anti-submarine weapons such as ASROC, although as with all VLS they are modular in nature. The same protection applies with these blocks as with above.




Underwater Weaponry:

For use against mines and torpedoes, especially in poor sonar conditions, four 40mm railguns firing supercavitating slugs are mounted. The railguns have a maximum range of 150m and have a maximum rate of fire of 60 rounds per minute.

Four 660mm torpedo tubes are mounted in pairs above the waterline and at the forward extreme of the bow on either side. Magazine capacity is 16 heavyweight torpedoes and 60 lightweight torpedoes (this magazine capacity is taken up by “interceptor” torpedoes in the Rigsforbund Søværnet).




Countermeasures:

The ship mounts six Mk10 mortar decoy launchers capable of launching a number of anti-missile and anti-torpedo spoofing rounds. Further, it is possible to launch shore bombardment rounds from the 12” tubes, although no such munitions are yet deployed with the Rigsforbund Søværnet.

For electronic countermeasures, the ship uses the Mk650 “Doberman” Combined Electronic Warfare Suite. Not only is the system capable of the complete array of radar spoofing, but it can jam mid-course correction and other telemetry links plus use the ship's radars as directed energy weapons in certain circumstances.

Finally, the Mk15 towed decoy is installed for use against torpedoes. Fourteen total decoys are carried aboard ship and seven can be deployed at a time to mimic the propulsion of various ships (this is a programmable function).




Sensors:

The primary means of threat detection is the FUOR-24D I-band LPI radar system. Two sets of four panels are mounted on the forward mack in order to provide three dimensional tracking and target of up to 1,728 simultaneous air and surface targets at a range of up to 780 kilometers (where the horizon allows).

The FRIR-70 E-band phased array radar is also installed on the first mack and allows for tracking and targeting of edge-of-space and orbital threats to the fleet.

Over-the-horizon tracking and targeting is provided primarily by two surface effect radar sets. The FSR-3D is comprised of three super-directional radars (one on the forward part of the superstructure and two on the aft mack) which provide tracking and targeting of airborne and surface targets out to 370 kilometers. The second surface effect radar is the FSR-4D; because it is only a single array it is limited to 140 kilometers and its targeting abilities are limited, it is essentially a backup to the primary set.

Line-of-site tracking and targeting is provided by four Mk5 LIDAR arrays. Short range fire direction is provided by four FUOR-40 LPI radars.

Subsurface tracking is provided by a bow-mounted UG-40 sonar array and UG-60 towed-line array. Also mounted are two UG-600 flank arrays, which allow for the triangulation of passive signals in conjunction with with UG-48 bow array. Supplementing the sonar arrays is the UGL-4 blue-green LADAR array, which has a range and resolution comparable to the UG-48. Tied directly to the ship's underwater defenses is the UGL-6 close-in LADAR array, which is a short range and high precision array meant to track and target point threats such as torpedoes and mines.




Command and Control:

The 'Midgard' General Warfare Management Suite is the command and control suite for the Berserker class. Containing elements of the more specialized C3i suites in larger Grunnvágr Metal Works classes, it is not as capable in any one role but makes for an excellent general purpose suite. Because the Berserker is not intended to act as a task force or fleet flagship, it lacks dedicated links to carry out high level flagship tasks.

The Mk85 NGS is a gunfire control system that uses multiple active and passive sensor inputs to direct and adjust fire, thereby giving normal shells an accuracy level of GPS-guided shells.




Accommodations and Facilities:

The Indomitable is a large ship with a relatively small crew, so it stands to reason that the facilities for morale and recreation are very generous. All messes and wardrooms are equipped with the largest and most advanced HDTVs on the market, as well as the latest and greatest in other home theater peripherals. Further, there are two fully equipped gyms, an indoor gunnery range, a cinema, and the ability to install other recreational facilities in unused areas.

All enlisted (Navy and Marine) and junior NCOs are housed in four man berths, senior NCOs and cadets in two man berths, and officers have berths to themselves of various size depending on their rank. Every berth enjoys an HDTV, video player, 60ghz gigabyte wireless LAN connection with full military encryption, and secure storage for laptops in lightly armoured compartments.




Propulsion:

Power is provided by a 300Mw Ascension Nuclear supercritical water reactor.

Propulsion is provided by two steam turbines supplying 216Mw to six waterjets. Cruise speed is 28 knots, normal top speed is 32 knots, and the ship is capable of producing flat-out sprints of 37.5 knots for short distances. Four bow thrusters are also installed for maneuvering in congested areas.

Refueling takes place every 15-20 years, although the Rigsforbund insists that for safety and control reasons that customers bring their ships to an Union port for refueling.

To whom it may concern,

I am the King of Archaya, and our nation is in need of something to defend our naval coastlines. Given our Nordic heritage, we were looking for a Nordic shipyard, as we both know that our people build the best kinds of warships. Before we even began to invest in our infrastructure, we knew that our deep connection to the seas must be honored by maintaining our naval standards to a high level.

As we are an economically weaker nation, all we can afford for now is 1 the Beserker-class DDGN, which we will wire all $3.5 billion in compensatory cash upon acceptance. Out of curiosity, as there is no picture or visual representation of this ship, what exactly does it look like? Could you provide us with a photograph? If not, does the ship look something like this?

Best regards,
The King of Archaya
His Majesty Baldwin

SUB: RE: Order

The estimates we have of your government's available funds suggest that the purchase of a Berserker would effectively cripple your nation's defense forces for a year. We can't in good conscience do that. Therefor, unless some proof is provided that a line of credit has been extended by a private third party, we must tentatively decline this order. May we suggest that you contact Halcyon Arms of Pharthan about their line of patrol ships and missile boats?
