First commissioned in 1998 at Toroshima Royal Shipyards with cooperation from Atlas Shipbuilding, the Unyielding Class of Corvettes are a fast attack vessel built for coastal patrol action, submarine chasing, as well as support and escort operations. It carries an array of armaments, with small ammunition capacity enabling fast resupply required for its mission role. The Unyielding class class weighs 1000 long tons, and has a top speed of 48 knots (55.2 mph). The vessel has seen action in every conflict with the North since its creation, in which it replaced soviet made Tarantul class ships. There have been 29 commissioned, with 23 ships currently in service. The Unyielding measures at a length of 162 studs by 16.

Unyielding Class Armament: Lightweight Gun
The Unyielding class' secondary weapon is a 76mm Lightweight gun capable of automatic fire pausing every 14 shots for the ammo tray to be reloaded. Being a modern warship, the gun is merely a secondary weapon.

Unyielding Class Armament: Trident 3 Anti-ship missiles
For surface to surface action, the Unyielding class carries 4 single cell launchers for Trident Anti-ship cruise missiles, totaling to 4 missiles armed at a time. The launchers are positioned outboard for ease of reloading by support ships. The Trident 3 has performed exceptionally well in tests and in the field. a single Trident 3 carries 255kg of explosive in a shaped charge. A single hit from a Trident 3 can cripple or even sink the average war ship. Trident 3 is can be programmed for high flying, or "sea-skimming" with the aid of observational radar detection data sharing from aerial platforms, the Trident 3 can hit targets well over the horizon.

Unyielding Class Armament: Homing Torpedo Tubes
Image
For anti-submarine purposes, the Unyielding carries 4 homing torpedoes, 2 on each side. A magazine with 6 other torpedoes is housed inside.

Unyielding Class Armament: Dual Arm Crossbow Battery
Image
The Unyielding's Anti-air weapon is a dual arm missile launcher with a 30 missile magazine similar to both NATO and Russian designs. Keeping with modern naval technology, the Unyielding primarily launches Crossbow Anti-Air missiles at air targets. For defense, the Crossbow missiles can also be launched at incoming missile threats, and destroy them further away from the ship.

Crossbow Battery Reload Action
Image
Once a missile is fired, the arm swings upwards.
Image
the door opens and a new missile is pushed up from the magazine.
Image
The missile slides in place and the doors close. The arm swings back in place and the missile is ready to be fired.

Unyielding Class Countermeasures: SRBOC
Image
Mounted across the ship are 6x Cell Super Rapid Bloom Off-board Countermeasures, or SRBOC. The SRBOC protects against anti-ship missiles. As a missile approaches, a SRBOC is launched creating a massive bloom of chaff and flares to thwart the tracking systems of both Radar and Infrared missiles.

Unyielding Class Countermeasures: Nulka Hovering Decoy
Image
An Australian design used by 4 countries, the Nulka is a floating radar decoy designed to "seduce" incoming missiles away from the ship. When fired from a SRBOC tube, the Nulka drifts on a parachute, offering function for 20 minutes. The Unyielding has multiple on board, captains usually prefer to keep 2 armed at all times.

Unyielding Class Countermeasures: CIWS
Image
The Unyielding carries a single Close in Weapon System (CIWS) Gattling Guns, similar to the American Phalanx and British Goalkeeper systems. The CIWS has an internal radar that locks onto an incoming missile, and shoots it out of the sky.

Unyielding Class Countermeasures: T320 Floating Decoy
Image
Image
Unyielding class ships carry 2 floating radar decoys designed to convince attackers that another target is available. In a modern naval war of range and radar screens, the decoy shows up as a ship on enemy radar. Possibly tricking them into firing missiles at the decoy.

Unyielding Class Electronic Warfare
Image
The Unyielding Class, like any modern warship, carries a state of the art electronic warfare suite. Electronic Warfare entails the "use of the electromagnetic spectrum or directed energy to control the spectrum, attack of an enemy, or impede enemy assaults via the spectrum." The EW suite pickups incoming RF signals generated by missile lock-on or radar systems. quite simply, it detects incoming missiles, and alerts the crew that enemies have detected their ship on radar. It can also create jamming to shorten enemy lock-on range.

Unyielding Class RHIB
Image
The Unyielding class carries 2 Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIB). The RHIB are lowered into the sea using a crane. RHIB are meant for patrol, boarding actions, and crew transfer.

Unyielding Class Aviation
Image
The Unyielding Class Corvette carries a single Hs-40 Cutlass helicopter for crew transfer, evacuation, and surveillance.
being too small for a hangar, Unyielding class ships do not always have helicopters on board, when the do, the aircraft are protected from the elements via a telescoping awning design. Which unfortunately I cannot replicate in Lego :(

Unyielding Class Bridge

Image
Image
Cramped due to its small size, the bridge accompanies 6 personnel. The bridge crew has access to the helm, radar, and sonar readouts as well as communications equipment to talk to other ships and relay orders to the CIC.

While not as imposing as the Valiance, this one does is pretty great on its own right!
