Our naval doctrine prohibits the use of the traditional heavily armed cruisers, in favor of missile cruisers such as the Kiev and Ticonderoga. Designs are allowed in any way, as long as the design is logically sound. The use of horribly strange colors like pink on warships is not appreciated and prohibited, we prefer our ships somewhat camouflaged. All ships will use the acronym HLMNS before their respective names.
