SNS Democracy [Tenacious Class DDG Flight II]

14.0k Quec  one year ago

Description

The Tenacious Class DDG Flight II is an improvement upon the earlier Tenacious Class. The Flight II holds many advantages over its predecessor such as increased range, payload, sensors, endurance and more. The Flight II not only improves upon these previously mentioned aspects, but also improves upon the general design, layout, and features of the ship confidently allowing it to serve well into the future (2030s+) in service with the Sosevean Navy.

History

In January 2011, the Navy identified that the Tenacious Class DDG Flight I was aging in the new and changing naval environment. To solve this problem, it was decided by the Bureau of the Sosevean Navy that a new flight of the ship must be produced in order to fully appreciate the platform. The navy's main goal was to "fit the Tenacious for future combat." The project was greenlit by the Sosevean Government in early February... After completing development in mid 2012, the first Flight II, later to be named SNS Democracy, was laid down with Conway Shipyards. It was there the Democracy was fitted with the latest sensors available at the time, naming it the "Tenacious Class DDG Flight II-A." The Democracy was launched on February 17th, 2015, where it was trialed and subsequently commissioned by the Sosevean Navy on March 12th of the same year.

Between the years 2015-2021, the amount of Flight II-A Classes expanded to 22 of the total 36 Tenacious Class DDGs in the Sosevean Navy. Part of this is due to rapid expansion of the Sosevean Defense force during this time. Meanwhile in politics, talks of refitting were growing to further modernize the Flight II by using the most advanced sensors available. Though this would mean a replacement of the A fitted classes, it wouldn't mean a total replacement immediately. Rather, only when the budget allowed it. Talks proved fruitful when on September 21st, 2019 the Sosevean government once again greenlit the operation, and increased funding for existing new sensor projects to increase development speed for the Flight II-Bs. Development on these sensors as well as development on the II-B allowed the SNS Democracy, the first ship of the flight, to be refitted to once again lead the Tenacious Class into the future. The Democracy was once again launched on December 19th 2021, where during works it had received upgrades to sensors (most notably switching from the SNR-05v2 AESA 3D Radar to the v4 version, increasing BMD capability and detection range.) and where it had also been fitted with newly developed SNL-6 AShM box launchers. Currently, the II-B accounts for just 25% of the Flight II.
