FSE Notes: FSE Notes II: Ship Design Notes:

CE+ - The TOSCANA class escort cruiser is one of the more massive escort cruisers constructed, rivaling the ESU's GORSHKOV heavy cruiser (which actually is a little light for its class). The TOSCANAs were designed to fill the gap in area-defense support ships, and most constructed to date have been assigned to Battle Groups, although a couple have found their way into Cruiser Task Forces. Until recently they had seen little combat action, but so far have proved themselves capable vessels.

First entered service: 2180
Currently in NSL service: 12
Lost in action: 0
Decommissioned/scrapped: 0
Relegated to reserve fleet: 0
Sold to other forces: 0
Under construction: 5
Procurement cost: 2160 MCUr
Ships in class: TOSCANA, VALLE D'AOSTA, ALSACE, AQUITAINE, BURGUNDY, BRETAGNE, NORMANDY, COTE D'AZUR, SICILIA, VALENCIA, CATALONIA, GALICIA

CLG - To enhance their missile potential the FSE developed a small medium-sized ship which carries several of the ATLAS-12 missiles, the NEMPHOS class light cruiser. They are weak-hulled ships, and so are loathe to enter into a beam battery engagement. To offset this, the developers added armour plating to the hull to boost its staying power in case any enemy force got close enough for a few pot-shots before the CLG could scurry away.

First entered service: 2178
Currently in NSL service: 23
Lost in action: 4
Decommissioned/scrapped: 2
Relegated to reserve fleet: 2

DD/B - The ALBACORA class ship was developed by the FSE as an answer to the NSL's WALDBURG/M missile destroyers by mounting the heavy [class-3] battery forward. But even with their great maneuverability, by having such few numbers this class proved difficult to employ effectively in combat. Its real worth is not yet known.

First entered service: 2183
Currently in NSL service: 7

Tactical Doctrines

It's pretty obvious how the FSE navy generally fights: not head-to-head! They typically swing in, attempt to maintain range and plant salvo-missiles on the larger enemy ships they are facing. They have a smattering of ships armed with the huge ATLAS-12 anti-shipping missiles, used to supplement the salvo missile-armed main ships. Their basic tactics are hit-and-run (because once they are out of ordnance, very few of their ships can trade blows with other ships face-to-face).
