The Kaldoudiana-class Super Dimensional Destroyer was built by the Karbarrans from 1726 through 2044. This ship was, and continues to be, the most common ship in the Karbarran fleets. As can be seen by the ship’s lines, its design was heavily influenced by Zentraedi ships of the time. The Kaldoudiana-class served with the United Earth Expeditionary Force (UEEF) as the Gardinia-class during the Sentinels Campaign. This was done through the same lend-lease arrangement that all Karbarran ships of the UEEF fell under.
The Kaldoudiana-class was a small destroyer, at just 500 meters in length. They mounted a fixed battery of heavy particle beam cannons, firing forward. Hanger space for aerospace fighters was fairly minimal, with room for around twenty. Later Kaldoudiana-class ships also mounted two batteries of missile tubes for Terran designed Barracuda, Warhawk and Spacehawk missiles.
Famous ships of the Kaldoudiana-class include the first of the unlucky three UEEF ships to be named Izamu. This first UES Izamu was lost in action while fighting the Invid during the Sentinels Campaign.
