ProcyonFrigate
Faster than Royal Navy Frigates, the Procyons have developed heavily armed attack Frigates with a punishing head-on attack capability. As its outer pontoons are relatively fragile, the bulk of the ships heavy firepower is on the central hull. Yet this ship can also hold it's own when it comes to delivering a broadside attack. It also carries a rear firing Heavy Lancer to punish ships trying to attack its engines, and rudders.

OverviewEdit

The Procyon Frigate has massive frontal firepower compared to its Imperial counterpart as well as the Carrack. It also has better manoeuvrability, but the same speed. It does however have the weakest broadside, and very fragile sections.

SummaryEdit

ProsEdit

  • Huge frontal firepower.
  • Decent manoeuvrability.
  • Triple hull makes it a harder target than its size suggests.

ConsEdit

  • Weak broadside.
  • Fragile.
  • No point-defence.

Battle StrategyEdit

You want to avoid brawling broadside to broadside with the Frigate, and keep your bow pointed at your enemy most of the time. Only broadside while your frontal guns are on cooldown. If your enemy has point-defence, get closer to them, then fire your Torpedoes to ensure they hit. You may want to stay at range though as this ship has many fragile sections, and can be crippled fairly quickly.

Counter-TacticsEdit

You can aim for the very weak pontoons to remove some of its firepower, but keep in mind that this section is non-vital. If you just want to destroy it quickly, then aim for its centre hull, engine and bow. Try to stay behind it, and never expose yourself to its front if possible. Take a ship with point-defence of stern facing Grav Charges to help avoid its Torpedoes. Mortars are very effective against this ship's many layers too.
