F-100 Hawker Hunter (1954-1966)

The F-100 Hawker Hunter was designed to be the next evolution in the Dothraki Fighter Program. Although designing began in 1951 the Hunter was not ready until 1954 and as such just barely missed out on the Imperial War. It was originally designed as an air superiority fighter and to counter enemy bomber formations. Once its usefulness as a fighter was exhausted with the advent of new jet fighters, the Hunter would find new life as a fighter bomber and ground attack aircraft.
The Hunter was known for its powerful armament which outclassed any other fighter in the air at the time of its introduction. the 4 30mm cannons promised to be a lethal weapon to enemy bomber formations. Towards the end of its life it would be modified to carry sidewinder and maverick missiles.

Regent Class (1914-1932):
The Regent Class was the second class of Dothraki Dreadnaught ever produced. Although it was a late addition to the arms race at the time of its production it was immediately one of the most powerful warships roaming the seas. She was fitted with 7 twin 12in turrets. However, due to its powerful main armament it was lacking in armor compared to other battleships that would come after it.
After their service in the Dothraki Navy, several vessels in the class would be modernized and sold to Austrovik-Germania as a part of that nations attempt to rearm itself. In this modernization process the power plant was reworked to increase power which allowed the ships to increase their armor while maintaining their 22kn speed. In addition, the 3in secondary guns were removed to make room for more modern anti-aircraft weaponry consisting of 40mm and 20mm guns.
One ship in the class (name pending) would remain in Dothrakia and serve as a training ship. During the Imperial War it was used as a floating gun battery near Brisbane. After the war the vessel would be retired and is now moored in Brisbane as a Museum Ship.

Queen Class (1918-1948)
The Queen Class was the first attempt at a Dothraki fast battleship. When they were first built their role was to act as a fast battleship group that would be able to head off an enemy battle line. They were also meant to have maximum offensive firepower possible. This was to result (in theory) in a group or warships capable of defeating any type of ship they might encounter at the head of the enemy's battle line and then breaking the enemy's line fully.
Due to their faster speed they were able to continue their usefulness longer than the Regent Class that proceeded them. They were also heavily upgraded in the mid 1930's to increase their lifespan. Their upgrades included a new and improved modern power plant that took up less space while producing more power than the original. This extra space and power was used in increasing armor and AA weaponry. In addition, the 6in guns were replaced and more effective dual purpose 5in guns were put in their place along with additional smaller anti-air weapons being installed.
Despite these improvements, the AA suite on the Queen Class was still found to be lacking soon after the outbreak of the Imperial War. As a result they could not travel far by themselves without overhead air cover or other ships with more capable AA defenses.
Following the Imperial War all remaining vessels were scrapped. Due to their long service life they acquired the nicknames "The Grand Old Ladies".

Tronia Woods Class (1922-1935):
The Tronia Woods Class Battleship was developed with the Nolon City Arms Limitation Treaty in mind. They were named after famous battles from Dothraki history.
By the early 1930's questions were being raised about the usefulness of the new vessels. It was projected that they wouldn't be fast enough to keep pace with aircraft carriers and their function did not seem to be vastly different from that of the proceeding Queen class. However, with the outbreak of the Imperial War there were serious discussions about bringing the vessels back to help supplement the small Dothraki Fleet. However, due to their slow speed and other major deficiencies this plan was eventually cancelled and the vessels were sold or scrapped and the metal and machinery from the ships were put into new naval warships joining the fleet.

Lion Class (1942-1972):
The Lion Class was a class of fast battleships designed for the Dothraki Navy. They were primarily built as a complement to the aircraft carriers of the Dothraki Navy. As a result the designers put an emphasis on speed and AA ability with a decreased emphasis on the armor and armament enjoyed by the Warden of the North Class battleships. It was noted that despite their immense size, the Lion Class Battleships could still turn in a remarkable 700 meters.
Due to having the same advanced main guns as the Warden of the North Class, the Lion class was still one of the most lethal battleships in the world.
After the Imperial War the Lion Class would continue to serve in the Dothraki Navy for several years. They operated as carrier escorts, or sometimes led their own battlegroups.

Warden of the North Class(1943-1960):
When the Imperial War began in 1943 the Dothrakian Military was still in the process of revamping its military might after a period of isolation. The centerpiece of this revitalizations was the Warden of the North Class Battleships. They were designed to be able to fight any other battleship in service in the world, and to keep pace with a battle group. Each of the ships is named after a different title of nobility in Dothrakia since these warships were designed to be the rulers of the ocean.
They were designed to be able to successfully engage any battleship of the time. As such they were designed with maximum firepower and armor in mind while giving up some of the speed enjoyed by the proceeding Lion class battleships. The main guns could pierce a piece of 20" vertical steel armor at 12mi, and its HE rounds could create a crater 50ft wide and 20ft deep and defoliate a 1200ft radius. Their armor was designed to withstand a direct hit from their own shells. As a result they had near immunity from 16in shells from distances over 10 miles. This, coupled with advanced fire control systems and floatplanes for spotting and aiming assistance, makes it nearly impossible for any enemy ships to get within to effective range without being overwhelmed by the raw firepower capable of being thrown out.
These warships were first proposed in 1937 and approved in 1940, with construction beginning immediately due to the heightened tensions in the region. All ships in the class were completed by 1943, just in time for the Imperial War. While the Lion Class was used as a large escort for carriers, the Warden of the North class was seen as to slow to keep up with the fleet carriers, especially the Poseidon Class that entered service in 1946. Instead they made up the Dothraki Home Fleet. They would primarily be used in support of amphibious landing operations.
The warships were retired shortly after the end of the Imperial War due to their inability to keep up with the next generation of Dothraki Fleet Carriers. They were retired and turned into museum ships, the Warden of the North is located at Pyke, the Duke of Manderly at Manderly, the Prince of Corellia at Cydonia, and the Queen of Tyra in Tyra.
