Ceithernach-class Huscarle Frigate
Tech Level 12

The Instellarms Ceithernach-class frigate is another combatant intended for the noble / corporate market, this time solidly in the frigate range. This design still pairs 10 points of armor with a massive large particle beam bay, and carries a secondary armament of advanced plasma guns and pulse lasers. Additionally, the Ceithernach carries a 30-ton hangar, often equipped with three 10t fighters or a 30t boarding craft for the Marines. While the Gallóglaigh Huscarle Cruiser is nearly the final word in private space power, the Ceithernach is a much better seller, largely thanks to its lower total price point, even though the Gallóglaigh causes more damage per MCr.

Typical crew for the Ceithernach is a Captain, 3 pilots, navigator, 4 engineers, Chief Gunner, 13 gunners, 2 small craft crew, 1 mechanic, and 8 Marines.
