M7M

Jump to: navigation, search

The M7M Missile Frigates are dedicated missile platforms, and in practice are used largely differently from M7 ships except for similarities in size and shielding. These ships carry few laser turrets, if any, and only for point defense purposes. Their primary form of attack is Missile Barrages, a capability unique to the class, where the ship can launch as many as 16 missiles simultaneously. This ability easily overwhelms the point defenses of their targets, allowing the M7M Frigates to have tremendous anti-capital power. They are also a major threat to fighters as well due to their ability to launch deadly fast-moving swarm missiles. Generally speaking they are the deadliest ships in the game since they can overwhelm anything with the size of their barrages, though their reliance on missiles makes them expensive and supply intensive. They are slow for their size, but have good carrying capacity.

[edit] Armament

The missiles used by M7Ms are unique to the class. Commonwealth and Terran weapons vary, as show below:

[edit] Commonwealth Missiles

Commonwealth ships mount:

[edit] Terran Missiles

The ATF Skirnir, as with other Terran ships, is incompatible with Commonwealth weaponry. Instead, they fire:

[edit] Boarding Pods

In addition, most Commonwealth M7Ms can fire Boarding pods for Marine boarding operations. Using Boarding Pods makes delivering marines to the target significantly easier, and once they are there, using the pods significantly reduces the Mechanical skill required to cut through the hull.

The OTAS Aquilo and the ATF Skirnir are incapable of firing boarding pods.

The OTAS Sirokos is a special M7M intended for boarding, and can mount boarding pods, but not any offensive missiles. It can also carry 30 marines to the others' 20.
