Built based on the Leaba-class Hull, SDFS Faoileán was an experimental vessel from the get-go. As the SDF-Navy placed its bet on seaplanes and flying boats to provide air cover for the fleet, they needed seaplane ports and tenders to maintain and operate from - the latter kind of vessel was Faoileán, a term, which means seagull.
Originally planned as the seventh Leaba-class Destroyer Tender, the vessel was reconstructed mid-keellaying and was planned anew. He lost most of the AA-armament, but gained two cranes, which were valuable for his work, as well as a complete rededication of his repairshops.
SDFS Faoileán participated in Operation Spriocearcaitheoir, the ASW-Operations of the SDF-Navy centered around Shella from 1942 to 1948. He was planned to be rebuild as a helicopter carrier in 1953, but those plans were abandoned and Faoileán was scrapped in 1955.
Faoileán could carry six Shane Airworks Piongain and support up to two squadrons of seaplanes.KanColle-RP Down the Rabbit Hole - as a man.
