The Vanguard Frigate was the backbone of the Varauta forces during the Protodeviln War of 2045-46. Although it was the smallest ship type in the Varauta fleet, it filled multiple roles, including acting as a vanguard and enemy reconnaissance. Due to its small size, the frigate could only accommodate a maximum of three variable fighters. Its armaments included six beam guns of various calibers and 24 missile launchers.
