Thraex Class Frigate

CostShieldsWingsTurn
30001

Thraex Class Frigates are often used in a defensive, counter-attacking role amongst the fleet. Any enemy that seeks to out-manoeuvre the cumbersome Battleship or evades the fixed-arc firepower of the Cruisers will be met with a storm of high-velocity slugs from these smaller vessels. While not as nimble as other ships of their class, their combination of speed and range means they can deliver deadly firepower wherever it is needed at a moment’s notice.

Armsmen Class Frigate

30100"

The Armsmen Class Frigate and its predecessor, the Pilgrim class, form the backbone of the NTSC lightweight forces. Quick and agile, these small craft lay down long range covering fire with their torpedoes from all angles. They are also armed with long ranged beam weapons which enable them to harass lighter enemy vessels, and perhaps even larger ones if they are able to slip into their vulnerable rear arc. Like all Terran Alliance ships, the Armsmen possesses shields, unusual for small ships.
