Description[edit]

The Frigate is a powerful anti-air vessel, capable of taking down any plane or chopper. It is also one of only two units able to detect and attack submerged enemy Submarines, the other being Allied Submarines. Despite this ability, it is a weak choice when attacking enemy naval units, as the anti-air missiles cannot achieve target-lock at low altitudes. However, its speed usually allows it to flee from harm's way fairly quickly.


Dossier Intel[edit]

Western Frontier[edit]

"The Squall "Hunter-Killer" Frigate employs magnetic anomaly detection to locate submerged quarry with ease. In addition to a Depth Charge lobber, a Silverfish missile rack makes it the most potent anti-air vessel in the Frontier's navy."


Tundran Territories[edit]

"For many years, political officers were assigned to Kipperov Frigates to ensure conscripted seamen adhered to the party line and did not instigate mutinies. To ensure maximum obedience, the political officer always doubled as the ship's cook."


Solar Empire[edit]

"The turning point of the Lightning Wars was marked by Type-22 "Swordfish" blockades forming an anti-air barrier around the coastlines of Old Xylvania, putting a stop to Legion Bomber raids entirely, trapping the Iron Lord's air force within its national boundaries."


Anglo Isles[edit]

"Home to the finest "haddock and chips" in the Isles, Porthampton is a favorite shore leave destination amongst Anglo seamen. Nearby shipyards oversee construction of the vessel which shares the town's name, the Porthampton-class Frigate."


Xylvania[edit]

"The X-120 Völn Frigate began life as a stolen Tundran secret aircraft project. However, ambitious attempts to retrofit the Reverse-Magno hover effect were too costly, and a hydrofoil redesign became necessary."


Iron Legion[edit]

The Iron Legion has not developed this unit.
