Nebulon C Frigate

Starfighters pose a significant threat to capital warships, when used
in large numbers.  It is not difficult to amass such a number of statfighters
because of their insignificant cost.  The Empire considered this threat long
and hard after the loss of the first Death Star and came up with the "Lancer"
frigate.  The "Lancer" design was an utter failure.  It lacked the defences
and speed which make a good warship.  The "Lancer"'s armament, however, was
not.  The Quad Laser Cannons made the "Lancer" the bane of every starfighter
pilot ever born, but did not make up for the "Lancer"'s other deficiencies.

Kuat Drive Yards had always intended for the "Lancer" to be a testbed
for the new Quad Lasers and were astounded when the Empire actually bought
them.  Kuat's real contender was a new version of the venerable "Nebulon"
line.  Unfortunately, the new ship was not ready until after the death of
Emperor Palpatine.

The "Nebulon-C" looks much like the modified "Nebulon-B" with its dual
angled ventral fins, but it is 400m long, just like the standard "B".  The
"C" replaces the "B"'s Laser Cannons with advanced versions of the "Lancer"'s
Quad Laser Cannons.  In addition, hull plating was thinned slightly to
improve speed.  To facillitate capture operations, the "C" carries one
Skipray Blastboat on an external mount.
