History

The Storm Frigate was designed to be relatively cheap to build on the surface of a planet and then launched into space, which is only possible due to LGS technology. Colonies import the LGS components and assembly is done on the colony world itself. They strongly resemble water naval vessels in design, including vulnerable bridge and communications towers. The Storm also lacks FTL capability, they are meant to guard a single system and use the space an FTL drive would take up to provide greater in system range.

The Storm is armed with 1 rapid-fire railgun turret, 2 fixed forward railguns, and 6 laser turrets. It’s seaborne nature limits it’s weapon emplacements to upper and forward firing arcs.
