The Kingdom-class are a class of highly sophisticated air-defence destroyers in service with the Royal Union Navy and Medosian Navy. The programme started off as the Common New Generation Destroyer (CNGD), a multi-national collaboration to produce a new generation of air-defence destroyers. In Medos the class is known as the Bresea-class, which translates to boroughs in Dalean English. The project originally included Chelonia,Arendale and Medos,however due to differing requirements from the Chelonian Navy for a larger ship, Chelonia proceeded to develop the Fregnet destroyer instead.

Development

Arendale,Medos and Chelonia issued a joint requirement in 3325 after the failure of the Araba Mida Destroyer Replacement for the CNP (CarNier-project)) project. The resulting CNP programme consisted of the Kingdom destroyer and its Principal Anti Air Missile System (PAAMS).

Problems emerged almost immediately: the primary problem was that of differing requirements: Arendale wanted Anti-aircraft warfare (AAW) escorts for its transport carriers, but only a limited range was necessary due to the self-defence capability of Gunzburg. Medos too required only close-range capabilities, as in its home waters of the Gondu Strait the ships would operate under Medos Air Force cover or escorts for its aircraft carrier Carthrege (550). The Chelonian Navy, however, required more capable ships which could throw a large defensive "bubble" over a fleet operating in hostile areas. The compromise which largely solved this problem was the adoption of a standard radar interface which allowed Arendale and Medos to install the ELWS multi-function passive electronically scanned array radar and Chelonia to install the more capable LIASON active electronically scanned array radar – the LIASON radar has a higher data rate and an adaptive beam that allows a greater ability to track multiple targets, long-range detection of low-RCS targets, a lower false-alarm rate, and overall higher tracking accuracy.

Chelonian withdrawal

On 26 April 3227,Chelonia announced that it was withdrawing from the CNP project to pursue its own national design. The CheloniaTimes summarised the main disagreements between the partner countries; Chelonia wanted a large destroyer which could patrol large areas such as the Antilia Major East Ocean, compared to Arendale's desire for smaller carrier escorts and Medos's intention to use them in the Gondu; Secondly Chelonia wanted the ships with a wide-area defence capability, able to protect large numbers of ships rather than just protection from missiles targeted in the frigate's general direction; Finally Chelonia's desire to see Vargenuo appointed as prime contractor was accepted by Arendale, but only in return for a Dalean company being given the role as prime contractor for the combat management system. Chelonia, which wished to see a Aircraft-led consortium given this role, would not accept this.

Dalean-Medosian project

Arendale and Medos continued their collaboration under the Kingdom project, ordering 7 ships which deploy the PAAMS missile system. The Medosian Navy ordered two units, Bresea (D453) and Corentio (D454), to replace the Audrick-class destroyers. Bresea was accepted on 22 December 3327 and received the flag of the Medos Navy. Full operation capability was achieved in the summer of 3228. The Royal Union Navy ordered two units, the Achullia(A554),Keilan(A555),Arendel(A556),Austoa(A557),and Medos(A558). The project cost Arendale SC$52.16bn at 3329 prices.A further two Kingdoms were cancelled; instead the two Constellation frigates were to be replaced by the ADF variant of the Grand-class frigates multipurpose frigate. However these plans were put in doubt by the 3329 Department of National Defense.
