Description
The Crusader-class DDVGN was built on the same hull as the Templar-class Guided Missile Destroyer. The class was designed as the pinnacle in Anti-Submarine Warfare, sporting several squadrons of ASW Helicopters and VTOL aircraft, as well as some of the more advance STOL. It's launch system for STOL aircraft is a single EMALS catapult, and maintains a 4-wire trap system for aircraft recovery. Launch and recovery operations of fixed wing aircraft are recommended as STOL, STOVL, or VTOL only. Launch and Trap operations cannot be done at the same time.
On top of the added flight-deck and hangar bay space, the Crusader adds additional berthing space to house the added troop complement and air-wing.

Like the Templar, the Crusader maintains the spacious RHIB bay, and with it's added aircraft complement can launch a small-scale invasion, or support and extract Special Operations force en masse. It's advanced communications and Electronic Warfare systems allow it to intercept an decrypt enemy transmissions. The Crusader maintains the 155mm AGS and 50 of the VLS tubes from the Templar-design to allow it to support troops deep inland.
It does not maintain the same level of sensory equipment as the Templar class, but it's AEGIS systems still surpass much of the ships it replaces and has a detection radius of over 300 miles.


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.
