Nitari class destroyer
Born in the wake of the Presdon Naval Treaty, the Nitaris were forced to abide by the 1500 tonnes standard limit on their displacement, making them weaker that preceding destroyers. To keep the Nitaris within Osora's destroyer doctrine, no comprises were made to her torpedo armament, in fact it was essentially doubled with the addition of quick reloads for every launcher, this did however result in her being very crowded amidships which hampered future refits. Her gun armament was dropped by one mount from the Kurodais, down to two twin turrets fore and aft.
An attempt was made to keep the speed the same as the last class, but Nitari ended up being heavier than expected which dropped her down half a knot of her intended speed of 36 knots. Following their completion it was decided that the triple torpedo launcher would need to be replaced by a quadruple and the total launcher count reduced to two, all in order to save on weight and space. There were ideas aired by some in the Admiralty to refit the Nitaris with quadruples, however the quick reloads would also need to be relocated, ultimately the idea was dropped and reserved for succeeding classes.
The Nitaris have the bittersweet privilege of being the host class of the only Osoran destroyer to survive the World War. Kanehira became famous in her own rite throughout the war, surviving it only added to her fame. Kanehira's wartime fame did not come about from combat, but as a result of enormous luck, skillful command by her captain, being a helpful support ship and being regarded as unsinkable.
Kanehira survived several air attacks, participated in several major campaigns and engagements - being the sole survivor of a few, rescued the crews of friendly and enemy vessels alike, and even sank two Antaran vessels. The only thing that stopped Kanehira sortieing in 1348 near the end of the war was a fuel shortage. Kanehira was seized and ceded to the Antaran Navy as a war prize in 1949. Many Osorans petitioned the Antaran government to return her to Osora to be preserved as a museum but were rejected as the Osorans simply could not afford to maintain even destroyer due to the state of the country after the war. At that point even Osoran-Antaran citizens requested to have her preserved in Antara, going so far as to have charity drives in an attempt to fund it, though not enough money could be raised. Kanehira was towed into Chewago, Carmilla province. Kanehira was 10% broken down when she was abandoned at Danvani Shipbreaking Yard where she still remains.
