Designed to fill a strategic gap in the Mandalorian Armada; that of a fast attack frigate capable of escorting Mandalore's heavy guns into close combat, the attack frigate is a new and advanced design of MandalArms' laboratories. Utilizing the latest in materials science, the ship is able to contain the massive heat produced by its vector thrust and weapons systems by liberal use of Dallorian Alloy, Hadrium and Denscris throughout the power conduits. Likewise, the Silicar/Mandalorian Steel hull is very resistant to heat, allowing Skull-class ships to have some hope of surviving the dangerous close quarters fighting they are designed for.
With the latest in hull armor, sacrifices were made in hangar space and speed in order to increase the ship's armament and hyperdrive. Likewise, point defenses and internal space was also sacrificed to provide the ship with power for her impressive forward weaponry and state of the art broadside armament.

The Skull-class is designed to appear next to an enemy fleet, using its heavy ion forward firepower to punch hard, and swinging around to deliver her broadsides. Tactically, it is recommended these vessels act in concert with larger heavy ships, to deliver a mass assault few enemies will be capable of withstanding.

Balancing looks good.

Dorsal and Ventral KP-32 Turrets
Since the KP-32 has "limited" production, and this is a minor-production design, the weapon is more rare than the ship itself. We have two basic options forward:

1) Change the production of this ship to Limited
2) Replace the KP-32 with a different type of weapon and keep this ship at minor production
Directorate Officer
[member="Kaine Australis"], ran through it again and realized that we're actually a little over balance because of the unusually fast hyperdrive, as a hangar of "none" is actually the same rating as "low" for a frigate of this size.

Some basic options going forward:

1) Lower a rating
2) change hyperdrive to average
3) add a relatively minor but practically exploitable weakness
