(This is older events that have already occurred. This post is to show the current inlore timeline of the current navy.)
Due to the rather aging fleet of Redford Warships and support craft, 3 rather large naval orders were sent out.
- A wartime vessel that is over 3 years of age is to either be refitted or replaced in order for current standards. If the vessel is already at current standards, it can continue service.
- A Commercial vessel that has been converted to a military asset must-see rigorous testing in order for the vessel to be used for said asset. If the vessel is to fail this annual test, the vessel must be replaced within 3 months.
- A Supporting vessel that is over 5 years of age must go through rigorous testing to make sure it's in working order. The vessel must also go through new protocols concerning emergency use. If the vessel fails either or both of these new requirements, the vessels are to be replaced by newer models.
These new orders forced naval yards to start creating new, far improved warships. Ships like the Tiger and Hunter-Class were to be revisioned immensely, while older warships, such as the Muriak, were almost immediately pulled out of service or were turned into training vessels. However, the new laws didn't affect newer warships at the time, such as The Raven 2-B9 or the Ark-2, as they were mainly up-to-par. The very few old warships that passed testing were usually relegated to either convoy patrols, escort missions, or exploration missions.
Smaller shipyards were the least affected out of these new orders. The rather competitive industries were constantly trying to out-pace the other, building more and more different ships. These varied from freighters to spacecraft. However, the ones that basically got off scot-free was the X7 line of transport craft. Although the line had been in service for well over 15 years, it passed the testing with flying colors.
The rather lack of many companies to build such ships already was bad enough, but it was also the fact this branch got hit the hardest. The freighters that were redesigned to either be fuel-tankers, ammunition depots, etc. were extremely old, and worn-out at that. The vessels had to be completely reworked from the ground up, and had multiple design setbacks. The new designs were to be some of the best in both defensive capabilities and in their roles.
