This is the Skirmisher Class Frigate: Combat Specialized Frigate. The Skirmisher Class Frigate is designed for fleet scale combat. This unconventional role leaves the ship without the equipment necessary for long range space travel. Because of this shortcoming, the Skirmisher is only deployed in massive fleet scale operations.
1 - Light Mass Driver
2 - Point Defense Laser
The Skirmisher typically engages enemy vessels at medium to short ranges in battlegroups with other Frigates. At such short ranges, larger ships would have problems aligning their main guns on moving targets. However, the Skirmisher uses its high maneuverability to align the mass driver on enemy vessels with ease. With little armor, the Frigate relies on its mobility for defense.
A two deck crew berth underneath the command bridge is capable of supporting 15 - 20 personnel.
The relatively low velocity of the light mass driver requires it to be in close range to prevent misses.
Point defense lasers on the top and bottom of the ship provide sufficient fighter and missile protection.
Oversized out-board thrusters and alignment jets provide the Skirmisher with superior mobility.
oh wow, that's awesome. it's amazing the kind of detail you can put into something that small. out of curiosity, is this supposed to be sort of a Star Wars-ish ship? based on the design and technology, I assume it is.
As usual, you pack an incredible level of detail into a tiny MOC. The small number of weapons for its size makes it seem really realistic, which I like. You never mention the two smaller ships. What are they, supply carriers? I can't wait to see more spacecraft from your company.
I like it
