General Information

The Minotaur is built to utilize the most powerful barrage missiles against enemy ships. It has a slow speed, a result of the large hull and armor it is built with, yet it's missile capabilities literally mean it can obliterate a medium sized fleet in minutes, especially if it appears unexpectedly or has been able to mask it's presence.

There are no known variants of this ship.

Background

Built from earlier Frigate prototypes, the Minotaur brings together the latest in missile technology, the current forefront of the military focus of the Argon military.

Focus on missiles which are cheap and more expendable than manned ships and craft resulted in an increased use of this technology in both the Missile Frigate that became known as the Minotaur, and the Bomber class Gladiator. The results in trials was impressive, and the Argon military has pushed more of it's budget's into developing this method of attack craft.
