Valentine class heavy frigate

[ img ]

The Valentine class frigates were designed as a cheap and quick to produce destroyer to make up for numbers required to escort fleets in the Scyllic, though this did not stop some units from serving in hunter-killer ASW squads in the Freyatic. They were armed with two twin 127mm/45 DP mounts and several AA emplacements, along with an assortment of ASW weaponry including a forward mounted hedgehog launcher. On average the Valentine class clocked in at a maximum speed of 25 knots, on the very rare occasion it was required, some members were able to strain their engines to go over 30 knots.

Cora class heavy frigate

[ img ]

Designed after the entrance of Antara into WW in 1342 and first launched in early 1344, the Cora class 'heavy' frigates were designed to escort slow carrier fleets in the Scyllic. They were very well armed for frigates, possessing two twin 5"/45s and a triple 610mm torpedo launcher, but still rather slow at 25 knots. As the navy still had a shortage of carriers, especially the slow escort/light carriers they were designed to support, some where assigned to the Freyatic fleet, which was in desperate need for submarine hunters in the early stages of the war.

The Cora class, as well as the preceding Valentine class, were designated as 'heavy' frigates due to the weight of their armament and expected foes. At the time, the Antarans believed the Osorans a bigger threat (and they did), and theorized the possibility of facing the Imperial Navy's large destroyer force. While not a match against ION destroyers in speed, size and torpedo armament, the Cora's possessed superior firepower controlled by effective directors (this class was the only frigate to mount the standard DP 5" fire director, the same mounted on regular destroyers, cruisers and other capital ships). Although no members of the class actually sank any major surface warships, a few were responsible for a few submarine sinkings, assistance with shore bombardment, AA support, and on two occasions they engaged a destroyer and a cruiser.

Princeton class light cruiser

[ img ]

Antara's first light cruiser following the conclusion of the Great War, and her first cruiser subject to the ENT, Princeton was well armed, fast and somewhat top heavy. Built alongside the Cascadia class heavy cruisers, both vessels featured experimental fire control layouts with the range finder and main battery directors separated, which was uncommon for Antaran cruisers. Like Cascadia, the setup would be changed a few years later, also with the introduction of DP directors for her 5" battery. As built, Princeton and Omara sported older 152mm/50 twin mounts which were swapped for newer 155mm/50 circa 1327-1328. All vessels of the class gradually had their torpedoes removed before 1940, usually to make space for aircraft catapults and additional 5" mounts. Veerburg and San Sadara had her forward torpedo launchers removed during construction however. Both vessels were modified considerably during their construction by their shipyard in 1925, resulting in Veerburg becoming a sub class. The most revolutionary change was a transom stern (already introduced to the Cascadias as they were built in the same yard). Additionally her main battery was changed to 155mm/60s which had a much higher shell velocity and weight, with this rifle becoming the standard for Antaran CLs .

All four vessels were fairly active during the WW, with Princeton and Omara serving primarily in the Freyatic. Veerburg and San Sadara formed part of the Scyllic Fleet for the whole war, with the latter being the only ship lost in action, in a gun duel with Chikawa during the Battle of the Tanagah Sea in 1343. Veerburg rammed destroyer Komaru in 1348 while evading a kamikaze attack, and was sent to the breakers without repair.
