More to come later!

Submersible Vessels
Frosc & Hund Class, 1955/1958.

On the 10th of March 1955, the Ministry for Naval Procurement awarded the contract for a modified class of the current series of diesel electric SSK, the Frosc class. This modification would see the rearrangement of the pressure hull and working spaces, while keeping as close to the standard form factor for the sea hull. The internal changes were to make room for a new advanced power plant coined 'reactor engine', which having been demonstrated on land, was now eagerly awaited by the navy to be demonstrated at sea.

The first and only of her class, Hund, had her keel laid later the same month on March 14th, and would be launched on the 23rd of May 1957. Designated DU-1 symbolising her status as the first of a new generation, Hund would commence extended sea trails in earnest. With initial teething problems proving manageable, Hund was accepted into Navy service on the 2nd of January 1958.

Bēacen Class Ocean Steam Screw Tug, 1887.

Boasting the success of the Brēcæn Class, the Brecanburg Shipwright Company set out to fill a role for a heavy duty ocean capable tugboat in 1885. What resulted would be a vessel equipped with one of the earliest commercial triple expansion engines, producing an incredible amount of power for the time; This allowed the tug to complete all but the most extreme workloads, and was found to be an invaluable tool in the naval yards of Fȳrēþel.

The first of its class, Bēacen, was bought before its keel was even laid, by the Fȳrflota, or Fire Navy; As part of an order of 6, for use towing hulls to be fitted out across different yards. In total 18 would be constructed between 1887 and 1898, and many would continue to see service well past the mid 20th century.

Producing 1000ihp for a speed of 10 knots, the class of ocean tug proved to be very utilitarian to the many operators throughout its life.

Brēcæn Class Steam Screw Tug, 1866.

Starting in 1864, the Brēcænburg Scipwyrhta Intinga, Brecanburg Shipwright Company, started a design for a new class of steam screw driven harbour and river tugs for the local market. The final design called for a full iron riveted hull, to contain a Fæstēah Īsen-Weorces Anlepe-Þȳrel Wiellanere, Fasteah Iron-Works Single-Tube Boiler, which would drive Fasteah Iron-Works latest two-cylinder double acting reciprocating steam engine; The Twa-Þȳrel Twīges Dōnung Ymelung Stēam Engin Bisen 1865.

The first of its class, Brēcæn, was launched on the 9th of March 1866, which was purchased mid-way through construction by the Hātaþurg Holt Int., Hatathurg Timber Co., for their inland river operations. In total, 96 of the class and its sub-classes would be produced, by a myriad of companies both domestic and foreign, between 1866 and 1878.

Producing 400ihp, for a speed of 9 knots, the class of tug proved its worth in the coming decades, even seeing service well into the 20th century on the many rivers of Fȳrēþel.

Budbāged Bāt Int. Launches, 1895-on

Starting in 1894, the Fȳrēþel govt. contracted the Budbāged Bāt Int., Budbaged Boat Co., to begin design of a series of dedicated launches for various uses within the govt. sectors.

  • Model 1895
    • The original contract called for a steam screw driven vessel no longer than 55ft, which should be capable of delivering 2240lbs of cargo and 9 passengers.
      The finished design ended up being 50ft long, 8ft in beam, and displacing 20tons; It was equipped with a 30ihp steam engine and was capable of 8.5 knots.
  • Model 1902
    • After being in service with the navy for 6 years, in 1901 a revised contract was delivered for the same specifications as the 1895 model, with further restrictions on dimensions; Being 42ft length, 7ft beam, and 4ft draught.
      The requirements called for an all new hull design, which proved to be very successful in the coming years, and in its final iteration was 42ft in length, 7ft in beam, and 4ft in draught, while displacing 15tons.
  • Models 1910 & 1911
    • In 1909 a contract for the redesign of the model 1902 was awarded; The update required the cargo capacity to be doubled to 4480lbs while retaining space for 9 passengers. The contract also included a requirement for a 30ft petrol motor version of the redesigned model 1902, with half the cargo and passenger capacity; 1120lbs and 5 passengers.
      The result was a redesigned cabin and cargo space, with a 40bhp petrol motor in both the 1911 and 1910 models, which displaced 15tons and 12tons respectively.

Over the coming years, these launches and various sub-models would see service with the navy, inland river service, and civilian operators. They largely proved to be very successful designs within their intended roles.

Quite literally the best tugboats I've ever seen, and I don't normally care about such small civilian ships. Well done.

I love these tugs! Such amazing drawings, so cute! I would love to see some rivercraft soon, maybe even some passenger steamers? More little boats please!
