The Roland class was the latest and most advanced destroyer class of the Royal Manticoran Navy at the outbreak of the Second Havenite-Manticoran War.

Origins and design notes Edit

One of a family of post-war designs which included the Edward Saganami-C-class heavy cruisers and the Avalon-class light cruisers, the Roland-class destroyers were developed after the First Havenite-Manticoran War to make full use of technological advances such as multi-drive missiles, off-bore launchers and electronics.

Classed officially as "destroyers" by BuShips, at 188,560 tons the Roland-class ships were larger than many pre-war light cruiser classes, the "destroyer" designation being used by BuShips to ease approval of the class design by the Janacek Admiralty.

The first units of the class were ready for deployment in 1921 PD. (SI2)

Specifications Edit

Due to its size, the class was unable to fire the three-stage Mark 23 MDMs, and was thus restricted to the two-stage Mark 16s.

Known ships of the class Edit
