Flak Frigate

Hiigaran Flak Frigate The Flak Frigate is a powerful defense against fighters. Its flak cannons will quickly tear through squadrons of fighters and can threaten Corvette class vessels as well. It tends to be far less effective against enemy Frigate and Capital class ships as they are capable of destroying it with little trouble. This ship is best used in a supporting role protecting fleets from enemy fighters while having other Frigates and Capital ships protecting it. This ship can also be mixed in with several other Corvettes or Frigates to form small hit-and-run fleet to harass the enemy; In particular, their mining operations.
