History

The Nova Frigate is the FIC answer to the sluggish nature of their earlier Crusher Frigate. Even other Frigates of that era were more maneuverable than the Crusher had been and this was often a criticism of the Crusher. It does this, but the firepower was reduced at the same time mostly due to being a much smaller size than the earlier Crusher. The already small crew was reduced further to a mere 36 people from the 60 of the Crusher, though there is more live-able room in the Nova than had been in the Crusher. In the end it compares pretty well to the Tempest Frigate in use with the SAN.

It still manages to carry 8 railgun turrets, 4 laser turrets, and has 4 standard missile launchers under retractable covers. A pair of fusion torch drives provides ample thrust.
