Olcata Frigate
One of the Circasians second-generation warship hulls, the Olcata Frigate was meant to replace older ships such as the Yollana that had proved ineffective at combating the raider threat. The Olcata Frigate was designed to be smaller and more cost-conscious than older frigates. These savings were then used to allow the ship to mount more advanced weaponry in larger, more expensive turret mounts. These mounts provided the Olcata with larger arcs of fire, making it more effective in combat.

The Olcata Frigate never performed fully up to expectations but they were a common sight within the Circasian territories and were most often used in an escort role. The Olcata was eventually replaced by other, newer frigate designs, including the Moshesta Frigate.
