The Frigate class of player-flyable ships was introduced with the $13 million goal. It was successfully reached at July 5, 2013(Crowdfunding campaign).

Historical InformationEdit

In the 17th century, the term was used for any warship built for speed and maneuverability, the description often used being "frigate-built". These could be warships carrying their principal battery of carriage-mounted guns on a single deck or on two decks (with further smaller carriage-mounted guns usually carried on the forecastle and quarterdeck of the vessel). The term was generally used for ships too small to stand in the line of battle, although early line-of-battle ships were frequently referred to as frigates when they were built for speed.

21st Century Naval Frigates are generally equiped with either anti-air or anti-submarine weapons as their primary armament.  This implies that frigates in Star Citizen may primarily be tasked with guarding larger ships from fighters.
