The Zhdits was a common Zhodani support vessel assigned to destroyers and was designed for a completely offensive role. Of the estimated 1000 built between the 3rd and 4th Frontier Wars, by Zhodani Naval Yards, only about 200 remained in service in the 1100s.  Many Zhidts have been decommissioned or sold to client states. The Zhodani have successfully sold this vessel to clients since the 4th Frontier War.  Mixed popularity with their crews has generally been to the assignment they were tasked. The Zhdits is best in a support role and is rarely found alone.
 Design Notes
  • The 4 turrets on the Zhdits have an additional .5t of displacement each.
    • They are designed to swivel giving the gunner a plane of fire similar to reality.
  • The captain shares a cabin with the first mate (usually opposite duty shifts)
  • The vessel has 3 weeks of power plant fuel
