Warning Spoilers through Winds of Wrath

The Grand Alliance Navy consists of:

("Outworld build" means ships, build in another worlds and transferred by the Squall. "Locally build" means ships, constructed in Destroyermen's world)

Americaan Clan Navy Edit

Capital ships Edit

Battleships Edit

  • USS Savoie (supposedly BB-1)- outworld build Bretagne-class supredreadnought (refitted), formely of League origin. Captured by Alliance in Devil's Due. Currently under repair & crew training.
  • USS ?Impero?. Outworld built. Italian Littorio-class battleship, formerly the most modern and powerful unit in the League fleet. Damaged by torpedoes causing the stern to settle to the sea floor in the Martinique harbor, and surrendered to Allied forces. Although the NUS attempted to claim it as a prize, their inability to actually maintain and repair it is considered a strong argument against their claim, and it is likely to go to the Americaan Navy, though this situation is not resolved by the end of Winds of Wrath.

Cruisers Edit

  • 1 under construction. The particulars of this vessel are unknown at this time, however given comments made about it and the Gray, it is likely to at least feature improved armor protection and anti-aircraft fire control relative to the Gray. Main battery is most likely to consist of 5.5" mounts as in Fitzhugh Gray ,though given that it is likely to have been designed in response to initial intelligence about the League, it may feature a main battery in the 6'-8" range.
  • USS ?Hessen? Outworld built German cruiser, most likely of the "D" [1] class, or (less likely) "I/10" (precursor to the Deutschland class equipped with 8.1" guns) design. Formerly part of League fleet, but joined Americaan Navy Clan during events of Winds of Wrath.
  • USS ?Adige? Outworld built. Italian Trento-class damaged by USS Gray during Battle of St. Vincent in Winds of Wrath, and surrendered to Americaan Navy Clan.

Light cruisers Edit

  • USS Fitzhugh Gray (CL-1) - locally built light cruiser, of "Fitzhugh Gray"-class.
  • USS Maa-ni-la (CL-2) - locally built light cruiser, of "Fitzhugh Gray"-class. Savaged by 15" shells fired by the League battleship Francesco Caracciolo, and although it survived the battle, the severe damage lead to it being suggested that it would be scuttled or beached. It was not however made clear that this was in fact carried out.

Freighters, converted into protected/armored cruisers Edit

Dazle Santi Cat
  • Santa Catalina (CA-P-1) - outworld build cargo ship. Converted into the auxilary cruiser. Grounded during Battle of the Zambezi River in River of Bones, and used as stationary battery until destroyed.
  • Mizuki Maru (on service of Shogunate of Yokohama) - outworld build "Maru"-type cargo ship. Converted into the auxilary cruiser. Sunk in prologue of Iron Gray Sea.

Ironclad battleships Edit

  • Andamaan - protected seaplane tender, rebuilt from captured Arata Amagi-class ironclad battleship. Sunk by aerial attack during battle of Second Maadras Convoy.
  • Sular - armored troop carrier, rebuilt from captured Arata Amagi-class ironclad battleship. Run hard aground during final battle at New Granada.
  • La-Laanti - armored troop carrier rebuilt from captured Arata Amagi-class ironclad battleship. Reconfigured to resemble Savoie in effort to confuse the League and potentially draw fire from the Savoie, and fitted with multiple 8" cannons of Empire manufacture. Sunk by a League torpdo hit to the bow while defending Maaka-Kakja and Salissa from a League surface group
  • Saa-Leebs - armored troop carrier rebuilt from captured Arata Amagi-class ironclad battleship. Reconfigured to resemble Savoie in effort to confuse the League and potentially draw fire from the Savoie, and fitted with multiple 8" cannons of Empire manufacture. Sunk during Battle of St. Vincent while drawing League fire away from Savoie.
  • Liberator - armored troop carrier rebuilt from captured Arata Amagi-class ironclad battleship.
  • Raanaisi - armored troop carrier rebuilt from captured Arata Amagi-class ironclad battleship.

Ironclad cruisers Edit

  • Four improved Azuma Kai class cruisers - Zanzibar-built were captured by Alliance in Devil's Due. Two are named USS Itaa and USS Ris (Lemurian for nose and chin, reflecting ram shape) and take part in the Battle of the Zambezi River in River of Bones.

  • 2 new "Sims"-class destroyers, under construction. Vessels will be equipped with new DP 5.5" guns.
  • 2 League DDs of unknown design and condition surrendered after Battle of St. Vincent. Likely to be incorporated into Americaan Navy, though their final disposition is not made clear.

Corvettes Edit

(All sail corvettes on Alliance service are classified as "escort destroyers")

Directly from the books:
Razied DEs

or Corvette

Captured Grik "Indianmen", Primarily of the earlier (lighter) design. Razed to the gundeck, these are swift, agile, dedicated sailors with three masts and a square rig. 120-160' x 30-36', about 900 tons (tonnage caries depending largely on armament, which also varies from 10 to 24 guns that range in weight and bore diameter from 12-18 pdrs). Y gun and depth charges.

Auxiliaries Edit

USS Respite Island SPD-1

Directly from the books:

RS USS Tarakaan Island

Image flipped to face right from Allied Recognition Silhouettes from Blood in the Water (C) Taylor Anderson

Still largely composed of purpose-altered Grik "Indianmen", small and large, and used as transports, oilers, tenders, and general cargo. A growing number of steam auxiliaries have joined the fleet, with dimensions and appearance similar to Dowden and Haak-Faask Class DDs, but with lighter armament. Some fast clipper-shaped vessels are employed as long-range oilers. Fore and aft rigged feluccas remain in service as fast transports and scouts. Respite Island Class SPD's (self-propelled dry dock) are designed along similar lines to the new, purpose-built carriers-inspired by the massive seagoing Lemurian Homes. They are intended as rapid deployment, heavy-lift dry docks and for bulky transport.

Named Ships:

  • USS Pecos is a Fleet Oiler of Second Fleet.

New Britain Navy Edit

HIMS Achilles

Illustration from Rising Tides

The New Britain Navy can technically be considered its own individual navy however they are a member of the Grand Alliance. The New Britain Navy consists mainly of paddle-wheeled ships-of-the-line (known as Liners) and frigates. Note the New Britain Navy calls DDs Swoops of War. As of Winds of Wrath, New Britain has begun commissioning protected cruisers of the "Poseidon" class, bearing a strong resemblence to the USS Olympia [2] and have been previously noted to be working on their own "Wickes-Walker" class DDs, although these are not seen in action by the conclusion of Winds of Wrath.

Protected cruisers: Edit

Steam/Sail Swoops of War: Edit

Ships of the Line: Edit

  • HIMS Centurion is an Imperial Ship of the line of Task Force 11 [SoH Hb. pxvii].
  • HIMS Mars is an Imperial Ship of the line used by Admiral E. B. Hibbs as flagship Task Force 11 [SoH Hb. pxvii].
  • HIMS Mithra is an Imperial Ship of the Line of Second Fleet that High Admiral Harvey Jenks used as his flag ship during the Battle of Malpelo [SoH Hb. pxvii].
  • HIMS Poseidon was an Imperial Ship of the Line of Task Force 11 caught fire and sunk prior to the Battle of Malpelo, abandoned prior to sinking [SoH Hb p 191].

Republic of Real People Navy Edit

Generally assumed as coastal defense force, the Republican Navy lacked sea-going ships. Their only known units so far are coastal defense monitors, low-freeboard twin-turreted ironclads, designed to protect harbors and coastal shipping.

Coastal battleships Edit

  • Imperator-class - first "blue water" warship designs of Republic Navy. Four vessels commissioned in time to participate in events of Winds of Wrath. These ships displace 15,000 tons, are able to make 20 knots, and are armed with 6 *10" guns in twin mounts, and a secondary battery of 3" Derby guns
    • RRPS Imperator
    • RRPS Ostia
    • RRPS Augustus
    • RRPS Songze
  • Imperator-successor- it is remarked that the Imperators are expected to be replaced by newer, improved vessels upon their return from action against the League.

Torpedo boats/Destroyers Edit

  • Unidentified class - The Republican is producing an locally designed torpedo boat/light destoyer, equipped with 2 x Derby 3" guns, and 4 * 21" torpedo tubes, two in a twin mount, and two in the bows. Vessels are small, strongly resembling turn-of-the-century DD designs, and possess lamentable seakeeping qualities. An initial series of six is produced in time to see service in the conflicyt with the League, but no names are given

Coastal monitors Edit

  • Princeps-class - twin-turreted monitors, designed for harbour and coastal defense. About a dozen comissioned in early 1900s.
