As stated in an poll I will do some new design for the Veridian Republic. Mainly new 'modern' models. These designs will be heavilly influenced by the new heading I am taking with the Veridian republic. A more aggressive stand basically with a 'democratic' system only in word since the military will be in control.
Finished it and decided to call it a Same Class destroyer (Same meaning Shark in Japanese). It is mainly a missile orientated ship design with minimal guns but still has several lasers/beam weapons for close in situations)/
The USS Calahan is a destroyer class space warship of the NATO forces.
Side Note: No name as given to me for this ship, so I picked one from the film "Threads". The USS Calahan is a naval vessel that rams the Soviet cruiser Kirov, adding to the tensions that lead to WW3. A rather dark "inside joke".
The Archangel-Class Planetary Assault Landing Ships are the largest starships dedicated to the Terran Protectorate Colonial Marine Corps. Each ship is capable of carrying an entire marine regiment, and every marine regiment is assigned to one particular home ship. While most operations involve the use of the smaller Titan-class transports, capable of carrying a company of marines, these vessels are held back for massive, long-term operations, like planetary assault and liberation of major worlds. As many as 200 regiments may be involved in such an operation, each arriving in one of thes nearly 3,000 foot-long vessels. They not only carry all of the equipment, personnel and even administrative facilities for each regiment, but they also carry up to 48 Normandy drop ships or Valkyrie combat shuttles and a squadron of fighters, plus 12 standard shuttles and two captain's yachts. During wartime the marines virtually live aboard these vessels, often sitting in deep space near conflict zones waiting for the order to jump in. But for almost all of the transit time they are kept in stasis to save on food, water and other consumables...their stasis tubes are programmed to slowly prepare their bodies for the environment on the planet where operations are to be conducted. The Archangel is moderately armed, but not designed for ship-to-ship combat. It's massive missile and particle beam batteries are focused on planetary bombardment, meant to soften hardened stationary targets in preparation for landing. However, the ship also carries a number of heavy rail gun batteries designed to intercept missiles and enemy bombers that may get past the fleet's screening vessels.
I think the best analog for these ships would be the Rodger Young from Starship Troopers, or the planned America-Class amphibious assault vessels currently being designed by the U.S. Navy.

The Anointed-class was one of the first ships built for the Threshold of Hadrian Navy, and so still incorporates many of the original ideas considered to be practical on paper, but not in practice. However, once fortunate offshoot of this became extremely useful. A modified honeycomb design was employed, using more triangles and thicker armor where possible, as well as more heavy-base struts than commonly found, resulting in a ship that is considered to be an "Ol' Reliable" concept. While as of late found to be outclassed by newer battlecruisers, particularly that of the Alliance, the Anointed-class's reputation is that of an old dog that is still a formidable force, capable of pulling off miracles on the battlefield, taking far more force and a heavier beating than it would be thought possible. Part of this is due to it's dual-bridges. Originally conceived to be a massive flagship for fleets of Ships-of-the-Lance, a large, somewhat showy - and well defended by point-defense, Flag Bridge was incorporated. It's removal from later ships of the class was saved by several cases of enemy ships actually blowing out the main internal bridge, the ship temporarily going "dead," only to minutes later surprising the once-thought victorious enemy with a close-range display of force as a surviving or entirely new impromptu command crew taking control.
As such, new tactics allow the Anointed-class to easily work together in small fireteams with other ships of the same, or even different class, which aided greatly in the Verge-Incursions, with teams of battlecruisers striking precisely during large ship-of-the-line battles, using their smaller size to their advantage, as they were not the initial targets of choice. In coordination with their heavy compliment of dropships and orbital troopers, this made them prime for launching boarding actions.
To counter boarding actions from taking control via the aft bay, large heavy bulkheads can easily be put into place to isolate vital areas.
