   Comments: The Chrysanthemum class destroyer escort is a small, fast vessel intended for fleet and squadron escort duties. The design is old, but efficient, with examples of the ship serving in the Imperial Navy for over a century. Chrysanthemums are ubiquitous, being encountered with larger fleet elements as well as working alone.
     This class of destroyer escort has been pressed into service in a variety of non-escort duties, including orbital patorls, police operations, garrison duties, and even limited strike missions.
