The Vanguard-Class Landing Helicopter Dock is a multipurpose landing helicopter dock built by Kronos Inc, aimed for service in the Zhenian Navy as the Haidong-Class Landing Helicopter Deck. Though primarily a landing helicopter deck, it is also capable of acting as a lighter aircraft carrier capable of carrying fixed-wing STOVL aircraft and a flagship/command ship for those whose fleets are incapable of operating larger supercarriers.

Built to lead Marine/Naval Infantry invasions into enemy waters, the Vanguard-class is capable of utilizing and delivering an array of landing craft, ground vehicles and various combat aircraft for air support to the battlefield. For such reason, although primarily built as a landing helicopter deck, it also has a well dock for ground vehicles and landing craft, as well as hangars below the deck for combat aircraft. Its deck has also been improved from previous models to be capable of launching fixed-wing STOVL aircraft, while a ski jump can be fitted on the deck as an option. It also has a Battlefield Control Center in the Bridge overseeing the units aboard, capable of housing command and control operations if needed.

In terms of delivering troops to enemy shores, the Vanguard-Class was envisioned to conduct over-the-horizon landing operations, both on the surface and through the air. To fulfill this role, it is capable of not only up to 3 landing craft air-cushioned (LCAC) or 12 landing craft medium (LCM) ships, but also up to 20 fixed-wing STOVL jet fighter aircraft or up to 40 medium-sized helicopters (roughly the size of UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters); normally, however, the ship's air fleet consists of 12 fixed-wing fighter aircraft and an assorted array of 20-24 helicopters. All of these assets are combined to deliver at least one reinforced battalion and supporting units to the battlefield, which includes up to 6 main battle tanks, 27 amphibious assault vehicles (AAV) and 9 towed 155 mm howitzers.
