The Type VF class Frigate is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Vargr Frigate (Type VF): Using an 800-ton hull, the Vargr Frigate is a typical small warship used on patrol, military, and anti-corsair missions. It mounts Jump drive-R, Maneuver drive-R, and Power plant-R, giving performance of Jump-4 and 4G acceleration. Fuel tankage for 375.0 tons supports the power plant, allows one Jump-4, and provides 15.0 tons for support of ship's vehicles. Adjacent to the bridge is a model/4 computer. There are 32 staterooms and three emergency low berths. There are eight hardpoints and eight tons allocated to fire control. Installed on the hardpoints are eight triple turrets: six triple beam lasers and two triple missile racks. There are three ship's vehicles: Two 40-ton pinnaces, and a G-Carrier. Cargo capacity is 10.0 tons. The ship is streamlined.

The Vargr Frigate requires a crew of eight: pilot, navigator, medic, and five engineers. Eight gunners, two pinnace pilots, and two pinnace gunners are normally carried, as well. Frigates on patrol duty generally carry 12 combat troops for boarding parties; with double occupancy, up to 32 additional troops can be carried when ground fighting or prolonged operations are expected. The ship is not intended for the transport of paying passengers. The ship costs MCr51 1.4034 (...including architect's fees and standard design discount, but prices can vary) and takes 25 months to build.
