History

The Ranger Frigate was designed as a true FTL frigate, which the earlier Vanguard Heavy Frigate was not. It owes much of it’s shape to an internal spin gravity ring. It also has a fairly unique system of ‘arms’ which extend to either side, these can be used to dock with other vessels or refuel from a ship or station. Outside of scientific missions the Ranger could do just about anything required of a spacecraft making them very popular with UEG command.

The Ranger is armed with 24 Railgun turrets, four 3-tube missile launchers, and 8 laser turrets. It is powered by a large single Fusion Torch drive to provide thrust.
