BDNE - Although the NSL had a good array of anti-missile/anti-fighter ships in their CLs and CEs, they were still hard-pressed by the FSE to cover all their valuable assets adequately. Plans were drawn up to create, as the NAC had done with their AEGIS-class battlecruisers, a heavier anti-missile/fighter platform. The Kreigsraumflotte admirals were split into a number of different camps as to the exact design specifications this new platform should take. The two strongest camps were the carrier group and the pure anti-missile/fighter proponents. A compromise was finally reached in which the new vessel would carry 2 fighter squadrons (satisfying the gap the NSL were feeling with their already limited light carriers) and have adequate anti-missile/fighter capabilities by mounting a suite of 5 PDS' and 2 area-defence firecontrol systems (satisfying the anti-missile/fighter proponents), with the rest of the hull design following the standard NSL philosophy: have the ability to go head-to-head with other ships of the line. Thus was born the BERLIN class defense cruiser.
CVL - While not many in number, the NSL do have a light carrier - the HAMBURG class. Like most all NSL vessels, this ship was meant to go up against its opposition directly, not hang back like NAC carriers do. Thus limited in its fighter-carrying capacity, it compensates for it with an offensive punch that makes the enemy take notice. The only 'drawback' to this is that the ship has the same armor value as the MARIA VON BURGUND-class battleships, although is has a Mass value of 30 greater than the same. Construction continues, however, if only to make up for combat losses suffered during the Third Solar War.
CLG - The NSL's attempt at a light missile boat, yet staying within their standard ship construction doctrine. It wasn't wildly successful. At this point the NSL has suspended further construction of this class, while they turn their attentions to a different kind of ship to take its place. The naming convention for this class is rather....sparse. It follows the old Earth U-boat/submarine convention, though some crews have taken to giving their vessel unofficial names.
