    Knox class frigate. Formerly in use with the USN and the navies of Greece, Turkey and Spain. Currently in service with the navies of Egypt, Taiwan, Thailand, and Mexico. The preceeding USN Garcia DE class, also used by Brazil and Pakistan, was a very similar design.

    Charles F Adams Destroyer. A steam turbine class from 1960, very much similar to a WW2 destroyer but having enough AA capability to soldier on with the USN into the 1990s next to the ASW Spruance DD, to cover for that designs AA shotcomings. Its own ASW capabilities never came close to matching those of modern destroyers though.
    Also used by the Greek navy until recently, sublasses included the West German Lütjens class and the Australian Perth class.

    The Belknap was a better balanced developement of the similar, preceeding Leahy class.The Leahys were the USN's first trully capable missle AA cruiser but lacked an all-round capability, which came with the Belknaps.

    You are wellcome, sir. :)

    So here's another one, the Descubierta class corvette of the Spanish, Egyptian and Moroccan navies. Based on the Portuguese João Coutinho class corvettes, they are a sister class to the French D'Estienne d'Orves-class avisos (sloops- also serving with Turkey and Argentina). In practice, they are heavily armed -for their size- compact, high sea capable frigates.

    At 45 knots, the Soviet Navy Project 705 Лирa was the fastest class of hunter/killer nuclear-powered submarines ever built. With a short reactor lifetime and mechanicaly troublesome, they were retired with the end of the cold war. In Civ2 terms, they would rule the seas.

    The Victor class submarines were the smaller and slower Soviet equivalent of the US Los Angeles class. Their role was to hunt eveything that moved on and under the surface of water. The tail fin sonar array boom was a feature of Victor III's which passed on to the Akulas.

    Essentialy an enlarged and streamlined version of the nazi type XXI U-boat, the most prevalent submarines in the Soviet navy.Slow and less capable in the ASW role by late cold war standards, they were very quiet and had an exceptional long range: 11,000 miles without refueling. Exported to Cuba, Libya and India, they were a headache for the USN for a while.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foxtrot-class_submarine
    Preceeding Romeo (China, North Korea,Bulgaria, Syria, Egypt and Algeria- still in use) and Whiskey (Albania, Bulgaria, China, Egypt, Indonesia, North Korea and Poland- all retired) classes differ mostly in size and range but in Civ2 terms they would work the same.
    2nd take: more prominent prow.

    Silent death. The finest ASW platform of the cold war.The largest class of American nuclear submarines, still. The most cost-effective unit of the US Navy. Tomahawks, Harpoons and mk48 torpedoes. 13 years between refuelings. Just awesome.

    These are great tanelorn! Is there potentially a cold war scenario planned to be attendant to these?

    With Cold War vessels, mostly American and Soviet, and a focus on submarines, I'm guessing a Hunt for Red October, or similar-themed, scenario.

    I was thinking of something smaller.
    The story so far:

    Training submarines, unique to the Black Sea fleet. Used as padded targets for training torpedoes. Carried armament and could be used in combat. One ended up used as a restaurant instead. :p

    Built in massive numbers and widely exported. On the rocks indeed. Too often.
