Model: Ithari Swarm Frigates(ISF's)
Affiliation: Open Market
Description: The Ithari Swarm Frigates exist for one reason and one reason alone, to serve as the central backbone of the Moross fleet. These frigates are the ship that were most often associated with the Moross Religion, and its Crusade. The ship itself is fearsome looking, with its features being “squid-like”. Its front appears to have four claws, tow on either side and a central pair of “jaws” within the middle, this gives the Frigate a truly fearsome appearance when it first shows its face in combat.
Aside from their appearance the Ithari Swarm Frigates are in fact rather normal ships of their size. Their main combat roll is to lay down firepower alongside the heavier Destroyer classes within their fleet, though groups of these ships do perfectly well on their own. The Ithari Swarm Frigates have absolutely no fighters aboard, because of this they are reliant on other ships and their own point defense laser cannons against Starfighters and bombers, this makes the ship rather vulnerable to strafing runs from smaller craft.
