Osean Federal Ship Harrier (CVN-24)
Hubert class Nuclear-powered Aircraft Carrier, Hubert subclass
Motto: Vis Per Mare

The OFS Harrier is the third ship of the Hubert class, built at Bannion Iron Works and commissioned into the Ceres Fleet in 1974.  After completing her first refueling in 1999, she was transferred to the Pacific Fleet and stationed at Naval Station Stafford.

After the loss of the Buzzard and Vulture, the Harrier was transferred to the Ceres Fleet to reinforce the surviving Kestrel and Barbet.  Coming under cruise missile and thermobaric SLBM attack, she survived thanks to interception by her air wing and Klamath ANG assets.

The Harrier survived the war, and three years later was sold to the Emmerian Navy, who currently operate her as the Cavour (R30).  She has been replaced in the Ceres Fleet by the Falcon class OFS Eagle (CVN-32).

Squadrons onboard during the Circum-Pacific War were VF-2, VF-33, VFA-41, VFA-131, VAW-120, and VAQ-131, whose aircrews collectively incurred casualty rates over 50% on expeditionary assignments to Yuktobania.

Excalibur class Guided Missile Cruiser

Excalibur class CGs were built off the hulls of Cavalier class DDGs and designed to protect Osean carrier battlegroups from Yuke air-to-surface saturation attacks.  Flight I is characterized by twin-armed missile launchers as its primary weapon, entered service in 1976, and are all named after legendary swords in OMDF service.  Flight II entered service over the late 80s and early 90s with VLS cells replacing the older launchers; the OMDF names their Flight II ships, including the Cygnus, after legendary birds.  

Relatively expensive and extremely advanced when they were first unveiled, Excaliburs have been exported only to strategically close and affluent Osean allies: North Point, the FCU, Erusea, and Emmeria.  The GRDF bought surviving Usean Excaliburs after the Unification War.

Cormorant class Guided Missile Frigate

The Cormorant class is an offshoot of the WFR-80 program that produced the Aurelian Gerfaut class FFG and Osean Apito class FFG.  After one of the first Apitos was lost to Scofieldian ASMs in the Wesson Incident, the OMDF sought to acquire a replacement.  

Adding an air search radar and Phalanx to the Gerfaut, and replacing its Aurelian Exocets with Harpoons, the OMDF bought 36 of these ships and named them after birds, breaking from Osean naming conventions.  Widely exported to Osean allies, the Cormorant is one of the most prolific classes of warships in the world.

Lacking phased array radars and slow to fire from their single-armed launchers, Cormorants proved extremely vulnerable to Yuke air attack in the Circum-Pacific War, prompting the OMDF to revive the Totten class DDG project from the 90s.
