The Idris class Frigate is a combatant warship.
The Idris class Frigate was designed for service with the Bain Defense Squadron, the space force of Bain, a world lying in Spica Sector and a member of both the Boötean Federation and the Solomani Confederation. Though the carriers are tiny by the standards of most Solomani Confederation vessels they are occasionally called upon for Federation and Confederation service. The Idris lacks the marines of the larger Javelin class Destroyer.
