Rytarra Heavy Frigate
A new generation of ak-Tai frigate designs began to emerge just before the War of the Seven Stars. More aggressive and deadly than their predecessors, these ships incorporated a century of technological advances, creating a cutting edge warship design capable of besting those of other races.

One of these new frigate hulls was the venerable Rytarra Heavy Frigate. This jump engine equipped frigate was meant for long-range attack missions during times or war, or as fast reaction patrol units along the ak-Tai borders. The Rytarra’s four forward-mounted Meson Bolters gave it an impressive first strike ability that would leave most enemy destroyers and light cruisers in flames in short order. The inclusion of decent anti-fighter defenses also ensured that the Rytarra could not easily be swarmed and subsequently destroyed by enemy fighter units, a flaw in the heavy frigate designs of other powers.

The Rytarra Heavy Frigate earned itself a reputation for being ruthless killers for their slaughter of Circasian cruisers. The Kolanis Cruiser in particular was unable to tangle with the Rytarra and come out alive. Newer Circasian cruisers faired better when combating the Rytarra, but they were always in short supply and could not be wasted taking on ak-Tai frigates. The ak-Tai knew this and tried their hardest to tie up enemy cruiser squadrons with strike waves led by Rytarra frigates.
