The Frundsberg class System Defense Boat is a defensive warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Frundsberg class System Defense Boat is built for the Langemarck Royal Navy, the space arm of the military forces of the Langemarck Coalition in Vanguard Reaches Sector. The hull is a sleek, heavily armored streamlined cone that is constructed around the Particle Accelerator bay and is small enough to be carried by a Fleet Tender. The vessel is not jump-capable but is fast and agile. It is equipped with Model/6fib computer and has extensive electronic systems. The crew of 32 includes a Marine squad drawn from the Langemarck Fusilier Regiments.

  • The vessel is a TL-12 design.

Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (of ten craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. [1]
