A Frigate as depicted in the Role Playing Game

Frigates are small warships often used to support larger classes of capital ships. These ships are fielded by both the Martian Congressional Republic Navy and the United Nations Navy.

Frigates are smaller ship type than Destroyers in the books and larger than Destroyers in the TV series.
