Moshesta Frigate (Beta)
Because of its fame, the Moshesta was one of the first hulls considered for widespread upgrades in the fleet. Following the war with the Chouka, new technologies were quickly recovered from scientific records taken from the Chouka homeworld and from combat scans. The new Moshesta Beta model was the first Circasian warship to be outfitted with the advanced medium plasma cannon. Several unique Moshesta hulls were also used to testbed other new weapons and technologies developed after the war, though none of those were as successful as the widely produced and upgraded-to Beta model.

In the wake of the Chouka War, most new Moshesta Frigates took on the names of famous Moshesta commanders from that war. It became a point of honor for the ships, and those few Alpha models that were retained in service due to inability for an easy upgrade were rechristened with the names of their current commanders who would command them until decommissioning.
