Republic of Saritania (Sofa's Builds) - Added CL Luvyalko
The War Information Department has publicly released the Catalog of Defense Technology. The following will disclose the tools that have been, and will be, used in the safeguarding of our nation.

(Special thanks to the folks behind the After Cataclysm mod, which I've taken to using extensively.)

Destroyers

Destroyer, Blyzowka (Thunder) class
  • Length: 103m
  • Beam: 13m
  • Mass: 1392
  • Draft: 5m
  • Propulsion: Turbo-electric transmission
  • Top speed: 36 knots
  • Armor:
    - Upper: 1 layer alloy
    - Lower: 1 layer metal
  • Armament:
    - x2 triple torpedo launchers
    - x3 12cm guns
    - x2 dual .50 caliber machine guns
  • Block count: 2534
  • Volume: 5436
Devised as a means of complimenting groups of larger, heavier warships with speed and maneuverability, as well as protection against small craft and submarines. So, basically the same as any destroyer ever.

Cruisers

Heavy Cruiser, Admiral Vostorin class
  • Length: 193m
  • Beam: 23m
  • Mass: 9092
  • Draft: 7m
  • Propulsion: Reciprocating steam engine
  • Top speed: 25 knots
  • Armor:
    - Belt: 2 layers metal
    - Deck: 1 layer wood, 1 layer metal
  • Armament:
    - x8 23.6cm guns
    - x8 14.6cm guns
    - x4 triple 25mm AA
    - x6 twin .50cal machine guns
  • Aircraft: None (Planned: x1 scout-observation floatplane)
  • Cost: 136773
  • Volume: 30029

Upgraded from the tentative "A-class" cruiser. Named after Saritania's current Marshal Admiral and commander-in-chief of the Republic's Southern Fleet, Grigori Vostorin, she is the latest and most advanced ship in Saritania's naval arsenal. Even though it's the first one I built, even though upgrades came way later.

Light Cruiser, Luvyalko class
  • Length: 156m
  • Beam: 15m
  • Mass: 2827
  • Draft: 5m
  • Propulsion: Reciprocating steam engine
  • Top speed: 27 knots
  • Armor:
    - Belt: 1 layer metal, 1 layer alloy
    - Deck: 1 layer wood, 1 layer alloy
  • Armament:
    - x5 14.5cm guns
    - x4 10cm guns
    - x2 triple launchers
    - x4 triple 25mm AA
  • Cost: 54249
  • Volume: 11745

An older vessel predating the Republic, the Luvyalko was designed as Saritania's mainstay light cruiser. Four 25mm autocannon turrets were recently added in response to the ever-increasing threat of enemy aircraft.

Submarines

Submarine, S-37 class
  • Length: 93m
  • Beam: 13m
  • Mass: 1167
  • Propulsion: Fuel/Electric engine
  • Top speed:
    - Surface: 23 knots
    - Submerged: 16 knots
  • Armor:
    - Upper: 1 layer alloy
    - Lower: 1 layer metal
  • Armament:
    - x2 Torpedo tubes
    - 4" deck gun
    - x2 dual .50 caliber machine guns
  • Block count: 1278
  • Volume: 3033

Saritania's submarine fleet was first developed to watch for enemy incursion into their waters. As such, the S-37's original role was to conduct patrols and sink intruders, but has since found its niche as a commerce raider. At least, it would, were it not for the fact that any ship can sink subs with regular cannons and no sonar.

RE: Sofa's Builds (For real this time)
Nice, i like how German it looks.

As for campaigns, the WWII Lite campaign should be pretty nice for this, it's got completely fictional designs and doesn't allow for missiles or shields.

ty; Yeah, the Admiral Hipper class was one source of reference, though I took a good deal of design cues from the Algérie and the Mogami class as well.

Also WWII Lite was something I was thinking of, but iirc ships have to be scaled down.

I really like it, but I feel like those secondaries have far too small fields of fire. You'd be better off just with casemate guns with that setup!

RE: Sofa's Builds (For real this time)
Finals are over. Told myself to make a destroyer or torpedo corvette. Made this instead. Also thinking of switching physics settings to Earth approximation and re-optimizing for that but iunno

Submarine, S-37 class
  • Length: 93m
  • Beam: 13m
  • Mass: 1167
  • Propulsion: Fuel/Electric engine
  • Top speed:
    - Surface: 23 knots
    - Submerged: 16 knots
  • Armor:
    - Upper: 1 layer alloy
    - Lower: 1 layer metal
  • Armament:
    - Torpedoes (missile)
    - 4" deck gun
    - x2 dual .50 caliber machine guns
  • Block count: 1278
  • Volume: 3033

The first thing I built after getting back into FTD was a big, slow, conspicuous heavy cruiser. Naturally, I figured something small and hard to spot would be an ideal compliment. The S-37 class was built as a means of scouting ahead of the fleet, and conducting hit-and-run raids while it would approach. I've yet to see if it's any good as a commerce raider.

WIP interior spaces including what will be the main control room and torpedo room.

Yeah, I was debating on their positioning whilst designing the thing and figure they need to be moved; most likely going to have them swap places with the main AA battery.

RE: Sofa's Builds (For real this time)
These are stunning, truly. I really love some of your deck details - I've never thought of using ammo clips as chains before, and the heavy cruiser's superstructure is really well balanced. I might have to steal that radar design while I'm... studying... your heavy cruiser. Tongue
