Oscar class destroyer

[ img ]

Developed from the Winters class, the Oscar class made a major leap in displacement and a substantial improvement over Antara's already solid Great War era destroyers. It was the first in the navy to mount a dual purpose artillery and long range torpedoes (8.2 km at 38 knots). A common drawback to Antara's early post-GW destroyers were the lack of powerful power plants for it's destroyers, Oscar boasted only 34 knots during trials. Most of the Oscar class served in the Freyatic during the World War, as they were considered inefficient to combat Osora's own destroyers, and instead were regulated to ASW and merchant convoy escorts.

Arabella class destroyer

[ img ]

The Arabella class destroyers was developed from the previous Oscar destroyers. The notable improvement being the additional 127mm mount. The total length was increased to support the added weight as well as to support a newer engine room, which resolved the previous issue of speed, the Arabella class clocked in at an average of 37.8 knots.

The limited firing arc of the #3 mount prompted several captains, not just on the Arabella class, to have it removed and replaced with 38mm autocannons guns, this became more popular as the war dragged on and Osoran airpower was noted.

Jinora class destroyer

[ img ]

The Jinora classes inherited the same basic shape as the Arabella and Oscar class with a slight increase in length, but was the first Antaran destroyer class to mount 610mm torpedoes, based on the Kurodai scare. The new torpedoes were only marginally better in terms of range and speed but mounted a bigger warhead, but despite this they were still a far cry to the power the oxygen torpedoes the Osoran navy used.

The battery remained the same with an improvement to the mounts, now being powered, the quicker rotation meant it was able to track aircraft more effectively. It's AA suite received small updates in the addition of single 40mm guns which were added sparingly due to the small amount of supply.

Leo and Natalie class destroyers

[ img ]

The Leo class, compared to the previous Jinora class, featured a revised gun and machinery layout, as well as a general change in the class's overall layout. Both torpedo launchers were placed on the same deck level which allowed for more compartment space space and made the main deck less crowded. The Leo class was also longer and had her displacement increase by 50 tonnes, bringing her to 1600 tonnes, which was pretty large for her time. Her beam became wider to correct the top heaviness of previous classes.

The Natalie classes followed in 1338 and were essentially a repeat. Both classes were considered solid warships and thus saw the most action, and in turn had the highest losses of any classes in the Antaran Navy during the WW, however in addition 66 Osoran, Siegmaric and Libeccian were sunk by members of both classes, also giving it the highest kill count in the Navy.
