Type 14


The Type 14 Frigate project is a multinational collaboration to create a guided missile frigate for multiple nations throughout The Western Isles. The project was launched in 2020 by Domanania, Martenyika, and Alteran Republics. Due to issues that arose during the design process, the Alteran Republics had to back out of the program, but left their contributions to be used. After the Alteran withdrawal, from the program, Serpens Land ordered several ships.

The frigate project is meant to replace outdated ships, and future proof a nations national defense. It is meant to provide a replacement for larger ships that would fill the same roll. It's primary roll is that of anti-ship combat, and air defense frigate. It is also capable of performing anti-submarine duties if armed with anti-submarine missiles.


The type 14 is a frigate class ship with the strike capability of a destroyer or cruiser while also incorporating stealth into the base hull design. The ship is comparable to other frigate designs in size. With a total of 48 VLS cells, it carries armament similar to some guided missile destroyers. In an anti air role, it can carry up to 192 small missiles if every VLS cell is quad-packed. However, the standard load out is 48 missiles (16 AShM/Cruise Missiles and 32 SAM). It has the ability to add an additional set of VLS cells for a total of 24 primary cells instead of 16.

The ship was designed to incorporate systems from multiple different nations. It is modular to fit every nations needs. If a procurer of the frigate desires to substitute a system provided by one nation with one of their own, they are able to. So long as the replacement can fill the spot. Nations may provide more than one system, and more than one participant may provide a system for other participants and buyers to select from.
