The Gammetan Frigate Mk II, officially called Haerostunes, is a space ship which forms the backbone of the Gammetan Navy. They are the symbol of the Gammetan Fleet due to the fact that they were the first ship to be built, there are currently more of them than any other ship, and they fill in a lot of roles, despite them being a rush design.
On the 12th of October 2010, the amount of bombers, which was previously 15, was decreased to 5 for more hangar room. The 60 F15s were replaced with 10 F16s.
This ship was origonally designed for recon and exploration. It's light properties would give it an advantage in a hit & run situation or something where it needed to escape fast, also, the hyperdrive exceeds most ship's so an anti-hyperdrive module would have to be quickly activated if they wanted to capture it. But once the Gammetans realised that they would need something much more than just for recon and exploration, they decided to build many weapons systems and defencive systems onto it. Soon the idea of making it more of a heavy frigate came into plan, but they turned back to a light frigate when they realized they could have an advantage in battle from a small ship; they could do fighter runs and such on bigger ships, maybe try to confuse it a little.
The ship has many extra systems for most tactical situations.
This is an alternation to the ring transporters. The advantage of this is that it does not need nodes to transport from or to, it has a long range, it is near instant and hard to hear or see. The Disadvantage of this is that it uses alot of power and can have some negative effects on the cargo.
This model uses a ring transporter, one of a more commonly used system by the Kortorisan nation. The idea was taken from the Goa'uld, which was taken the from the Ancients. It makes for a good transporting ship as they can hyperspace to a destination, ring their cargo, then hyperspace out.
Anti-Anti-Hyperdrive Module 1.5-2.1Edit
The ship is equipt with an Anti-Anti-Hyperdrive Module. Basically, it utilizes a field around the ship that protect it from anti-hyperdreive waves, transmitted on freqs. of 1.5 to 2.1, so is not affected by them. The ship is, however, not protected from any other frequencies. When this module is online it takes up about 10% of the ships power, and when active, 40%, so they must use it only when very necassery.
Kremin's Anti-Stealth Field VIIEdit
This module distrupts the stealth field around any ship within a 500km radius, it can be very effective when in recon, as it takes almost no power (0.2%) and can't be spotted without this frigate spotting the... spotter (?).
