The Brigantine equips a good range of weapons but is handicapped by its limited forward weapon power and poor defensive shielding. Nevertheless it is a popular ship, often used as boarding practice.
The Brigantine can mount several flak cannons, making it particularly lethal against fighters. However it is weak against capital ships due to its poor shielding and less than ideal anti-capital turret arcs. It has average speed for a destroyer so cannot easily retreat from a fight, but with a competant pilot it is a force to be reckoned with.
The Brigantine cannot be bought at any shipyard and must be captured in order to be used.
