NAC - New Anglian Confederation

The New Anglian Confederation Royal Space Navy

(From the GZG 2004 paper catalog)
The NAC Royal Navy is a direct descendant of the British RN, and proudly maintains many of the long-standing traditions of the Senior Service. The amalgamation of the British, Canadian and former US navies (that is, the Earthbound surface fleets) when the Anglian Confederation was formed in 2057 brought many American and Canadian naval practices into the new force, but the three nations' long history of co-operation served to make the integration a relatively easy one. The US Military had operated primitive in-system space warships since the early 2020s, and the development of the Jump drive in the 2060s led the new NAC RN to start a program of FTL warship construction to support and protect their colonial expansion. The first true combat starship was the HMS Thunderer, launched from the Lunar orbit shipyard on July 10th 2076. 

The Royal Navy in the 2180s is divided into Core Command, which operates the NAC fleet units still based within the Sol, Barnard and Centaurus systems, Defence Command (also known as the Home Fleet) that operates in the Inner Colonies and is tasked with protection of the NAC's Capital on Albion, and Outworld Command that operates throughout the far-flung NAC colonial possessions. The ground-combat arm of the Navy is the Royal Marines, elements of which are divided between the three Space Commands. Training Command and the Royal Naval Reserve are run as separate organizational structures, with both contributing ships and manpower to any of the main active-duty Commands in times of need. Service in all branches of the NAC armed forces is on a volunteer basis except in the most extreme circumstances, and personnel morale is generally very high. The RN encourages pride in the history and traditions of the Navy, and conditions aboard NAC ships are are comfortable as possible within the constraints of warship design and function. 

Ship Design Doctrine: 

The Royal Navy employs largely general-purpose ships (with the exception of the Fighter Carrier classes), using a broad mix of weapons and systems - beam batteries, pulse torpedoes and some salvo missile systems. They have some specialized designs for duties such as minelaying and sweeping, planetary bombardment and such, but the majority of fleet units are versatile multi-role ships. Energy screens are the primary passive defense, though some hull armour is also employed especially on the heavier units. Mobility is generally average-to-good, with very few ships having less than thrust-4 drives. Fighter operations doctrine is to base them on specialized carriers which rely primarily on supporting escort ships for their defense.

 

Some NAC ships use Grasers.  Rules for this new weapon can be found on the  United Nations Space Command (UNSC) page.

* The Grasers used by the NAC do not get the re-roll ability for the beam dice portion of their resolution and thus cost 3 points per mass instead of 4 point per mass.
