The Anlace-class frigate was a frigate class starship in service within the UNSC Navy by at least 2558. UNSC Infinity can house ten Anlace-class ships in its underside compartments. Anlace-class ships were manufactured at Mars and Tribute.
Class History[edit | edit source]
Origins[edit | edit source]
Deployment[edit | edit source]
Sometime after the Second Battle of Requiem, UNSC Infinity switched out its complement of Strident-class heavy frigates for Anlace-class frigates. Anlace-class ships were also deployed to fight Covenant remnants occupying parts of the Outer Colonies.
Design[edit | edit source]
The Anlace-class is a unique departure from UNSC frigate design. The Anlace is one of the smallest frigate classes at 372 meters, nearly half the length of prior models. The vessel lacks a spinal mount for a Magnetic Accelerator Cannon. It also places a heavier emphasis on atmospheric operations by utilizing maneuvering systems well adapted for atmospheres and using a lifting body design.
Armaments[edit | edit source]
Another feature of the Anlace-class that makes her unique among the frigate classes is her dedicated armament. The Anlace does not house a spinal mount for a MAC gun. Unlike other frigates the Anlace also has no missile batteries as it's principal armament; instead being one of the first warships to utilize Directed Energy Weapons.
