Christianna-class torpedo frigate

CMS Rhiannon undergoing shakedown

Undergoing testing by the Clarion Royal Marines, the Christianna-class torpedo frigate uses a Size 6 spaceframe and a pair of size C pion engines as the basis for a strike version of the standard frigate.

The torpedo frigate is armed with a pair of turreted railguns, a chin mounted railgun battery and eight torpedos, using its powerful engines for fast strikes and relying solelly on its railgun battery for point defense, and a reflective hull and masking screens for anti-beam defense, this lack of defensive equipment being the design's major weakness.

So far, the Royal Marines have fielded five protoype TFs: the class ship Christianna, the Rebekah, the Audrianna, the Rhiannon and the Margaurite, with the Margaurite being equipped with seeker missile racks instead of torpedos.
