Hawker Patrol Frigate

design by Peter Grey

The Hawker Patrol Frigate was first put into service in 885, and it was soon upgraded to an IDP design. While not heavily armed, the Hawker was very useful in fleet screening, recon and commercial patrol duties. The ship is unique in carrying six twenty ton fighters, which constitute its main striking power. The fighters also act as a high guard during frontier refueling operations. Most Hawkers were bought by world and colonial navies for commerce patrols and piracy supression, and a large number were exported to other Spinward States in the Post-Collapse period by the Regency.
