SF30 Frigate

adapted from Colony Wars by Patrick Stutzman

The SF30 Frigate is the smallest ship in GDX Group's capital ship line. It was originally designed to be used for policing civilian populations but was later adapted for military use. The SF30's military capabilities were proven during the Plantation Uprisings near the Corporate Sector, when two SF30 Frigates engaged and wiped out the entire defense fleet for one of the worlds in rebellion.

Despite the fact that it has been rated as an extremely fast capital ship, the SF30 proved to not be as popular as initially expected due to the frigate's lack of firepower.
