Description[]

The Ice Fang class was a frigate model designed by the shipwrights of Clan Snow Raven. After the success of the Nightlord class the clan's designers turned their attention to creating smaller warship models with the Ice Fang the first to reach production. While not as common outside Clan Star Raven's fleet as the Nightlord Clan Coyote and Clan Ghost Bear each possess several, and Clan Wolf, Clan Jade Falcon, Clan Diamond Shark and Clan Nova Cat each have or have had the vessels in their Touman.



Armament[]

For Anti-warship purposes the Ice Fang class has a single heavy Naval Gauss Rifle, and pairs of NL55s and NL45s in the nose. The fore and aft left and right bays each contain a Medium Naval PPC and two NL45s while each broadside bay carries a NAC 30, and 3 NL55s. Finally the aft bay contains 2 NL55s and 4 NL 45s Each bay also carries 2 ER PPCs, and 5 large pulse lasers for use against hostile fighters, along with 3 anti missile systems for point defense

Cargo[]

Fully loaded the vessel carries one Star of 10 aerospace fighters with 5 launch doors and 179,918 tons of cargo


Variants[]

The prototype Lava Fang class Frigate was initially an Ice Fang that was modified during construction to serve as a test bed for a number of new laser based technologies.

What if Warships remained active version[]

the history of the Ice Fang class remains much the same until the 3050s when the strength of the warship fleets of the Inner Sphere and the need for warships to patrol the occupied zones lie to all of the invading clans seeking to obtain warships that could be constructed quickly with Ice Fang production tripling by 3062 nd the number of Clans equipped with the vessel growing to a dozen.
