The Océan-class Corvette is a capital-type warship from Kingdom Hearts: Marche au Supplice. One of the smallest ships in the Novran-Archelonian Navy, the Océan-class makes up in fighter-type manuverability, while possessing heavy firepower to provide defense for larger ships like the Congreve-class Battleship & the Clovis-class Cruiser.


Overview

The Océan-class Corvette is one of the oldest tried and true designs of its series, and was the primary Corvette of the Navy of the Dual Monarchy from when the first ship entered service in 145 BDC (23279 EUC) until the last ship was struck from the roster in it's original role in 4 BDC (23420 EUC). The class served in multiple engagements over it's long 140 year career, including the Novaran-Archelonian War of Succession (where it saw the only losses of the ship in its history), the Boshin War in Yamato, The Bourgognese War & the Azurian War , among others. 

Layout

The Océan-class Corvette was designed by the shipwright Antoine de Lacroix, designed as light picket ships with its armament concentrated amidships. Three airtight gummi-block bulkheads were fitted in the hull, and was fitted with a reinforced pair of ramming prongs for a ram attack into an enemy capital ship.


Propulsion

The Océan-class Corvette had a small engine block containing 2 main engine exhausts powered by a single nuclear-powered reactor. This allowed the ship to travel in an excess of 8,000,000 miles at a course of 1740 mph (2800 km/hr; Mach 2.29), with a top speed of 2051 mph (3300 km/hr, Mach 2.7).


Armament

The Corvette is equipped with the following armaments:

  • 4x 240-mm Cannon Batteries, focused on the bow end of the ship
  • 4x 190-mm Cannon Batteries, 2 each focused on the sides of the ship, near the center.
  • 4x 160-mm Cannon Batteries, on Turrets at the stern end of the ship
  • An array of Flak Cannon Batteries strewn across the ship to deter enemy bombers.
