[[File:Danzig.jpg|thumb|R.S.S. Danzig, a Taratane class Frigate.]]The Taratane is a small warship, designed primarily for reconnaissance and mobile operations. It is very fast, but lightly armed. Its key strength lies in its launch bays, capable of holding two fighters and thus further extending its range while adding an unexpected defensive bonus. Although a versatile and useful ship, the Taratane is generally a subject of derision within the RASF .

DescriptionEdit

In terms of firepower, the Taratane is underpowered for a frigate. The inclusion of two fighters and four point-defense guns make it an effective buffer against enemy fighters in a large-scale battle, however the ship's main functions are reconnaissance and mobile operations. Fast and versatile, the Taratane is often sent alone into enemy territory to carry out specialised missions.

Although an invaluable ship under the right circumstances, the Taratane is typically a subject of derision within the RASF, nicknamed "The Fly-swatter".

Known Examples of ClassEdit
