APNS Legend and APNS Red March

APNS Legend (DDG-994) escorting APNS Red March.

The Superb-class guided missile destroyers were a series of fourteen warships based on the Vigilant-class destroyers. The Superb-class ships were designed as more advanced multipurpose ships, in contrast to their predecessor's focus on anti-submarine warfare, adding considerably enhanced anti-aircraft capabilities. There are eight ships in the American People's Navy and six in the Republic of Iran Navy.

The Superb class are the OTL Kidd-class destroyers.
