Iris class heavy cruiser
Originally conceived to be small and quick war-emergancy cruisers in 1342, the Shilohs evolved in size and capability as the navy recognised the increased wartime efficiency of the nation's shipyards. CH-8, the official name of the class, was a very rushed design that on the outside has a rather distinctive profile, but was equal in capability to the navy's previous Iris class cruisers, including: its size, armor and main battery layout. CH-8 did have some advancements however, such as the copying of her light cruiser cousins' hullform, sporting a flush deck and hanger bay in the stern. Much like the Jericho class, Shiloh ended up being even more top heavy due to the weight of her gun mounts and tall superstructure, as well as superfiring secondary battery.
The first group of Shiloh class cruisers were commissioned right into battle in the Scyllic Ocean where, with the lead vessel as well as Ardenton being lost the same year. In both sinkings no survivors were recovered so their accomplishments are unknown, except for hearsay by other ship crews. Edopolis to Summerwood were commissioned into the Freyatic Fleet and fought the Siegsmarine. They were transferred to the Scyllic Fleet to suppliment the losses the navy had incurred in 1345 and remained there. The final group of Shilohs were commissioned in 1345 into the Freyatic Fleet and served primarily as carrier escorts and the rare naval bombardment.
Decades after the war, some vessels were selected for missile conversion and continued to serve in the navy until the 70s, while others deemed unfit for refit were scrapped or disposed of at the end of the war or some time after it.
