Chrysanthemum class Destroyer Escort

The Type G class Frigate is a small, fast vessel intended for fleet and squadron escort duties.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This class of Destroyer Escort has been pressed into service in a variety of non-escort duties, including orbital patrols, police operations, garrison duties, and even limited strike missions.

Description: It is built on a 600-ton TL-11 braced cluster hull. At its core, the frigate includes drives that support up to Jump-3 and 4-G acceleration, but the performance and endurance of any particular example will depend on the subhulls fitted. [1]

Crew Dossier: The frigate requires a number of crew. [2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The design is old, but efficient, with examples of the ship serving in the Imperial Navy for over a century. Type G class Frigates are ubiquitous, being encountered with larger fleet elements as well as working alone.

Remarks: The frigate is designed to support the cruiser, but also take independent action. It is produced with a variety of interchangeable mission-related subhulls, the frigate can be sent on a long-range sensor sweep mission, return to base and change subhulls, and then return to duty as a missile ship, a hospital ship, or even a communications ship.
