Its an interesting destroyer design, I think using the German/Japanese style bow tubes layout adds something to the style and keeps things compact for a heavy torpedo broadside. I like it.

New Andreas class fleet carrier

[ img ]

Fleet Admiral F. Bradford theorized the role carriers would play in the future of naval warfare, and after much debate with the Admiralty in 1935 following the extensive experimentation with the navy's previous carrier classes, he managed to strongly convince them to extend their carrier programme. In 1937 three Carpathia class carriers were commissioned which completely filled the allotted tonnage for Antaran carriers. During their construction, three state-owned naval shipyards were also completed, intended to continue the rapid expansion of the navy. The political state of the world in 1937 allowed the Antarans to blatantly break past the treaty limits without much attention, and they gladly did so. Six additional fleet carriers under the New Andreas class were ordered and constructed solely by the new state shipyards, all simultaneously.

All of Antara's fleet carriers (atleast from Carpathia), are named after Antara's provinces, inherenting the naming scheme from her battlecruisers. Some of the later New Andreas's were named after battlecruisers Nucadia and Arcadia, following their sinking in 1940 and 1941, respectively.

Caprillo's airgroup sunk the light carrier Shouhou and several smaller ships during the Battle of the Solomon Sea. Cheridon, East Moren and Shimada served in the Atlantic and were responsible for events such as finding and sinking Gneisenau. Nucadia was the second and last of her class to have been sunk in action, this time during the Battle of Tuscadia, 1943. All in all the class as a whole was one of the most active capital ships during the war, seeing extensive service from 1940-1947, covering invasions, taking part in major naval battles, etc. None were decommissioned after the war, rather they underwent massive rebuilds and continued to serve until as late as 2000. Arcadia would be the only carrier of her class to have been preserved as a museam ship, accumulating 19 battle stars throughout her 57 years of service.

Displacement - 28 000 tonnes
Armor belt - 100mm
Speed - 32 knots
Range - 12 500nm at 16 knots
Armament - 4x2 127mm/45
Aircraft - 80-90

Like my Empress Azura class BB that I drew for the fast battleship challenge, my carrier took me quite a long time to draw so it'll be a long time before I draw another. I hope everyone gets a nice idea of the design language of my Antaran carriers.

Looks Ok, but: every time your 8x5" (4x2) turrets wish to fire across the flight deck you would have to suspend flight operations till the guns stop firing.

Have a look at the Essex class and what they did to help with that problem. They kept the turrets around the superstructure, but added four/six singles in sponsons off the port side.


The British seemed to have figured it out with the Ark Royal and Illustrious classes splitting their barrage armaments to half each side. Had no impact on flight operations.

The Japanese figured it out too, with their big (relatively speaking) guns parked on either side of the flight deck.
