The Destrier-class Light Air Cruiser was designed to dominate its French opponent, the Liberté-class. However, the appearance of the Faucon-class put the pressure on the Royal Skyfleet to respond. The HML Charger is that response.
Experience with the initial Destriers has been fed back and integrated into the design process. Modified oil-fired boilers and turbines eke out useful performance gains without increasing weight, and standardization of the broadside has led to improved fire control. Most significantly, however, the Charger is fitted with French style empennage, bringing its turning circle back into line with that of earlier comparable British leviathans.
Sky Commander Sir Edward Seaborne Clouston has been given command of the HML Charger, and, with a picked crew, is working up for deployment as part of the Channel squadrons, where they are expected to demonstrate their mettle in short order.
