Standard class

Standard class destroyer

The Standard class of stealth guided missile destroyers is a destroyer designed by the now-defunct Frequesuan Treaty Organization. The first ship was commissioned on 4 July 2010. Ships of the class are in use by the navies of the NFT, the Sovereign Duchy of Baerne, the Commonwealth of the Vineyards and Indhopal. In 2017 the navy of Indhopal announced tentative plans to sell its destroyers of this class to Japanistan.

The Standard Flight II is an evolution of the original design produced by NFT engineers.
