The Leningrad class Destroyer is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Leningrad class Destroyers serve with the navy of the Kostov Confederate Republic, a member state of the Solomani Confederation. They are fast and rugged and have a balanced array of weaponry.

Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (of ten craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. [1]

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage The Leningrad class is constructed using a 4,000 Ton hull built in a Close Structure configuration. The hull is partially streamlined, giving a relatively limited atmospheric performance largely reliant on its onboard gravitic systems.
  • There are 6 airlocks located around the vessel. The cargo hold is accessed by large doors and has a loading ramp.
  • The vessel has sturdy retractable legs, allowing surface landings.
2. Crew x56 personnel.
  • x11 command, x16 engineering, x16 gunnery, and x8 service. There are x5 Marines.

Accommodations

  • There are 31 staterooms. Senior staff have individual cabins: all other quarters are double occupancy.

Accessible areas of the hull are fitted with grav plates and inertial compensators and have full life support and environmental systems.

  • There are internal monitoring and security systems throughout the vessel. Individual sections of the hull can be sealed off.
  • There are multiple emergency lockers.
3. Performance The vessel mounts a Jump-3 drive, a Maneuver-6 drive, and a Power Plant-6, giving performance of Jump-3 and 6-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 3 and an emergency agility of 6. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for one Jump-3 and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
    • Ladders, gantries and platforms give access to the machinery.
  • The jump drive utilizes a hull grid.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/6fib computer: no backup computer is installed.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, an advanced sensor array, and has an avionics suite.
    • It is fitted with backup commo and sensor systems.
  • It has a transponder unit that can be deactivated on command.
  • It is equipped with a sophisticated ECM package.
5. Hardpoints 40 hardpoints.
  • The listed battery groupings are standard configurations for the class. Alternative battery groupings may be designated for specific missions.
6. Armament The normal weapons fit-out for a Leningrad class is:
7. Defenses The hull is plated, structurally reinforced, and built with secure bulkheads and compartments that give it a High Guard armor rating of 4.
8. Craft The vessel carries no subcraft.

Vehicles

The APC is housed in a sealable compartment with external doors and with a volume of 7.8 Tons. It can be launched and docked while the Leningrad is in motion.

9. Fuel Treatment The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 1,440 Tons.
  • The hull is fitted with fuel scoops.
  • The vessel is equipped with a fuel purification plant that can refine all onboard fuel in a few hours: the plant is operated and maintained by the engineering crew.
10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel is MCr4,003.735
  • Architects Fee: MCr40.037
11. Construction Time 139 weeks (32 months) as standard.
  • Build times can be reduced by mass production and the efficiencies such processes generate, by increased financing, and by allotting additional yard resources and facilities to the construction contract.
12. Comments Standard cargo capacity amounts to 17.0 Tons. The cargo hold can be sealed and has independent life support and environmental systems.

History & Background[edit]

Leningrad class Destroyers serve with the Kostov Confederate Navy of the Kostov Confederate Republic, a member state of the Solomani Confederation. 45 examples of the Leningrad class are currently in service. Leningrads have been used to deploy marine specialist teams for covert demolitions, assassinations and infiltration, rescues, and other unusual operations. They are occasionally called upon for Confederation service.

The crews of Leningrad class vessels engage in good-natured though fierce rivalry with their counterparts aboard Krivak class Frigates. Krivak crews will endlessly boast of how much better, or larger, some aspect of their ship is. Leningradski take it in their stride: it is plain to see that their big destroyers are far superior.
