Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description
Heavy frigate class originally designed to engage large capital class vessels in mid and close ranges where the Karuna's firepower and armor would be insufficient. Advanced beam weaponry deployed by the GTVA, and the loss of many frigates, including several Narayanas, made it clear that the firepower of currently deployed frigate classes was not enough to counter GTVA warships. This led to a massive refit of all Narayana class heavy frigates into artillery frigates capable of engaging hostile targets with specialized artillery weaponry from extreme ranges. Since the introduction of refitted Narayana, the UEF forces have won several key engagements where Narayana's artillery weaponry played a significant role in forcing GTVA warships to withdraw from combat.
Pre-refit Tech Description
The Narayana is a large, special purpose command frigate designed to lead assaults against heavily defended targets. The frigate sports multiple Varunastra mass drivers and gauss guns able to inflict crippling damage to any capital ship within its forward arc. Advanced communications and sensor arrays as well as extensive fighter facilities make this heavy frigate a superb command ship.

Narayana or Narayan is an important Sanskrit name for Vishnu, and in many contemporary vernaculars a common Indian name. Narayana is also identified as the original man, Purusha. The Puranas present divergent views on Narayana. In the Kurma Purana he is identified with Brahman and Krishna-Vishnu, but in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana Narayana is considered different from Krishna and also considered part of Krishna.
