  • Anti-Starfighter Specialist: Like its venerable ancestor, the Lancer II is a dedicated anti-starfighter ship. Though it has fewer individual weapon mounts than the old one, the ones it does are more precise and more powerful, and are wedded to a far more advanced targeting and fire control suite, and the frigate is just as capable of scything through squadrons of fighters.


  • One Trick Pony: The Lancer II does not really excel at any role besides the anti-starfighter one. It is an escort ship through and through.
  • Weak Punch: Among the most prominent weaknesses of hte ship is the complete lack of any sort of capital ship weaponry. While the combi-turrets enable it to be useful against


An unexpected revamp of a legacy design, the Lancer II is a no frills small frigate with a single dedicated role, designed to act as a fleet escort ship, anti-starfighter picket, and system patrol vessel. It is quick and armored with the new Carbon-Nanofilament armor which gives it remarkable durability for its size, and well armed with advanced quad laser turrets and dual-purpose Ion Cannon/LTL mounts, giving it both the legendary anti-starfighter capability of its predecessor, and also a reasonable combat capability against pirates, corvettes, and similarly sized vessels. A bare-bones and cheap design, the ship is not well suited for any special missions, it is cramped and focused, but quick to produce and with enough advanced and automated systems that it can be crewed effectively even with limited training.


With the other notable anti-starfighter frigates being more specialized, expensive designs, the Lancer II is slotted to quickly become the standard escort frigate for First Order battlegroups.

'It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge. War endures. As well ask men what they think of stone. War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner. That is the way it was and will be. That way and not some other way.'
