Razied DEs

or Corvette

Corvettes (DE's) Edit

Directly from the books:

Captured Grik "Indianmen", Primarily of the earlier (lighter) design. Razed to the gundeck, these are swift, agile, dedicated sailors with three masts and a square rig. 120-160' x 30-36', about 900 tons (tonnage caries depending largely on armament, which also varies from 10 to 24 guns that range in weight and bore diameter from 12-18 pdrs). Y gun and depth charges.

Auxiliaries Edit

USS Respite Island SPD-1

Directly from the books:

RS USS Tarakaan Island

Image flipped to face right from Allied Recognition Silhouettes from Blood in the Water (C) Taylor Anderson

Still largely composed of purpose-altered Grik "Indianmen", small and large, and used as transports, oilers, tenders, and general cargo. A growing number of steam auxiliaries have joined the fleet, with dimensions and appearance similar to Dowden and Haak-Faask Class DDs, but with lighter armament. Some fast clipper-shaped vessels are employed as long-range oilers. Fore and aft rigged feluccas remain in service as fast transports and scouts. Respite Island Class SPD's (self-propelled dry dock) are designed along similar lines to the new, purpose-built carriers-inspired by the massive seagoing Lemurian Homes. They are intended as rapid deployment, heavy-lift dry docks and for bulky transport.
