Orealyianis Warships: Orealyianis Phase Ship

Shortly after the Fold War, the Orealyianis Monarchy realized the need for an entirely new type of stellar-naval vehicle. One that is capable of performing fast and sustainable phasing maneuvers during patrol or active combat. Hence, after years of grueling research and countless failed attempts, the Orealyianis Military Research Department, led by the same scientists who developed the stealth upgrade for the VA-1-022, was able to develop, and finally unveil, their new addition to the Orealyianis Stellar Navy: The Orealyianis Phase Ship.
In the Orealyianis Stellar Navy, phase ships are used as fast and flexible warships intended to accompany other, less flexible vessels in a fleet, convoy or battle group and ambush enemy ships via alternate dimensions (ie. subspace, hyperspace.). Phase ships are able to submerge themselves in these dimensions for long periods of time, allowing them to move mostly unnoticed, as long as the enemy does not posses sensors that are capable of peering into the dimension the phase ship is currently using. Their length ranges from eight (as seen above) to ten kilometers. Orealyianis phase ships are perhaps one of the most costly to maintain warships in the Orealyianis Stellar Navy.
Due to the nature of phase ships, they are equipped with a specialized version of the regular S3 thruster. One that is focused on reducing excess spatial vibrations that will alert the enemy of the ship's presence. The same goes for it's engines. Fifteen compact versions of the regular 5.2x109
Micro-Cylinder Chaos Engines are used in order to spread out, and therefore, reduce the concentration of spacial distortions within the ship itself, which could also possibly alert the enemy of it's presence.
Orealyianis phase ships have two to five up-sized, SVS guided, high-powered SEACESSV cannons at the front with a lone one sometimes positioned at the back. They also have a smaller number of plasma cannons, as they do not require a large number of close-range defensive armaments, again due to their nature. They do, however, have fifteen to twenty full-scale salvos of high-powered MLMs in each of it's two MLM ports.
Aside from the normal weaponry seen in the Stellar Navy, phase ships are also armed with a small number of specialized SEACESSV units that can act as phase jammers when activated. These phase jammers can make nearby space rifts highly unstable, and therefore make it harder for anything, including the ship itself, to jump in to and out of the dimension that the device is currently activated in.
The AI of phase ships are superior to that of any other ship in the Orealyianis Stellar Navy, with the Vara Orealyianis and certain laboratory ships being the only exceptions. Their armor is the same as that of a destroyer's.
