Description
From a fear of all out war came the design for the Phalanx-class Battlecruiser. It was based on original hull-lays of the Templar-class, and, built by the same shipyards lauding the success of the Templar-class line, bears much of the same design ideas, general structure, and internal components. On that note, it maintains the same reactor systems and all-electric design, streamlining training vastly.

The Phalanx-class, with considerably thicker armor than the Templar it was designed alongside, was meant to wade through battle, taking hit after hit while dishing out damage. Many of it's concepts are from those ships of old, along with newer ones. All of it's critical systems, to include the reactors reside within the main hull, where the outriggers protect it from enemy fire and support it should torpedo strikes endanger the vessel, which it has the necessary counter-torpedoes to deal with.

The Phalanx-class, apart from a vastly larger arsenal, bears a massive Phased Radar Array, giving it unprecedented radar range. It's Radar is by far one of it's greatest assets, allowing it to monitor the airspace around entire regions, acting as a command center for ballistic missile and air-defense. The Phalanx can guide and coordinate entire fleets of vessels and help in aircraft direction, allowing carriers to sit further back away from the battle while the Phalanx goes toe-to-toe with the enemy forces, directing swarms of aircraft while launching it's own massive missile volleys, striking down those that endanger it.
Apart from VLS tubes and it's main guns, contrary to the battleships and battlecruisers of old, the Phalanx has no additional offensive weaponry. That is to say, it has only primary weaponry, unless it's 155mm guns are to be counted as secondary guys. Beyond that, it's design pours into defensive weaponry and electronic warfare, ensuring it's fleet and itself remain absolutely protected. The Phalanx can act as a control hub for fleet point defenses, it's large computer banks coordinating battle-defense to ensure maximum Point Defense effectiveness.

It's main 305mm (12 inch) dual cannon can not only fire large, guided rounds, but encased missiles as well, giving it's weaponry unprecedented range, albeit at a slower rate of fire than a VLS-volley, allowing the Phalanx to make deep-inland strikes.
As for RHIB bays, the bay of the Phalanx is identical to that of the Templar and Crusader: a centerline bay allotting for four standard RHIBs (or 1 fast assault craft) and two storage bays on either side, utilizing cranes to load and unload RHIBs from the centerline bay.


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.
