First produced in 3185, the Liberator-class Frigate is now the mainstay of the Liberation Fleets, completely supplanting the aging Zoriya hand-me-downs from the Alkonost Republic. Built on Laana, these ships exemplify the Liberation Worlds' aggressive naval doctrine: strong anti-frigate and anti-cruiser offensive capabilities combined with a full Marine platoon for boarding actions and groundside operations. The Liberator's main weakness is against large numbers of fighters, but when operating defensibly in a Liberated Worlds system, Type-81 Interceptors are usually available for an anti-fighter role.
