Introduction[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Ships

Frigates, as a class, stand between the Corvettes and Destroyers and are designated semi Capital ships. They are the last class that isn't designed to be able to stand on its own as a ‘ship of the wall’. With the colonial wars expanding and battleships becoming the main battle unit, the Empires' tacticians found themselves going back to an old doctrine known as a "Battle Line", which meant that surface naval vessels formed a line end to end which allowed each ship in the line to fire its broadsides without fear of hitting a friendly ship on a two-dimensional plane, like that of an ocean.

Additional Information[edit | edit source]

Frigates are good all-round combat vessels, but they cannot be under heavy fire for too long. In larger conflicts, they are usually taking the support roles and are designed for shooting down enemy fighter wings and smaller ships. Use their size, power and speed to focus down smaller ships first and then, if your weapon's system allows it, try to tear down the larger ships. Be aware of the heavier weapons shooting at you; you might survive a few well placed shots, but your hull will soon tear down under a constant fire.
