Logistic Support Vessels (LSV) were designed and built in Shirerithian shipyards following the War of Lost Brothers to give the Raspur Pact a global strategic capability to deliver its vehicles and cargo. Built and delivered unarmed they were however constructed with the capacity to house point defence systems, a multi-band radar, and multiple vertical launch systems in the raised portions of the ship, leaving the option open to allied naval planners to upgrade examples of the type into a versatile surface combatant on the cheap (comparatively speaking). The reinforced decks of the LSV-class also allow it to serve as a landing platform dock for gravimetric air vehicles, such as the Nereid, and gravtanks.
