The Calais class frigate is a heavy escort ship in service with the UNSC Navy. Made with technology learned from the Human-Covenant War, as well as UCR naval designs, the Calais is well armored and packs a lot of firepower for its class.

Technology and Combat CharacteristicsEdit

Calais class frigates are about as powerful an Halberd class frigate. Its guns can fire four full powered shots in a minute. These frigates can easily handle most enemy starships of comparable size and even larger ships alone. Each frigate is assigned an Artificial Human to make the most of the ships defenses and countermeasures.

The UEG Coast Guard vessels have specialized systems on their frigates such as gravity anchors and stasis fields for detaining subjects. Their missile and MAC armament is typically intended to knock out ship systems rather than blow them up outright.

Operational HistoryEdit

Fought in the UEG-UCR war.

In the aftermath of Intervention against the Dominion many of the Calais class frigates were pulled into convoy protection of civilian freighters. They also set up several anti-ship platforms which successfully intercepted raiders before they could exit slip.
