MK2.5 sabot rounds. Vicious.

A stock rocket called frigate try 3. Built with 300 of the finest parts, its root part is adapterSize3-Mk3.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.1.

Now reaches orbit without hyperedit but requires cross-feed enabling from all missiles. Frigate needs orbital refuelling to ready it for combat.

Originally designed for space siege of planetary bases but sabot beam rounds proved ineffective, bouncing harmlessly off the surface. They have been repurposed for ship to ship combat against heavily armored capital vessels. Shells have RCS for stabilization and limited guidance. While having a lower muzzle velocity compared to the light destroyer (available in the space armada hangar), its heavier mass allows stronger penetration power.

  1. fire 1st round
  2. open top of barrel (2 cargo bay doors)
  3. detach & move next shell into back of barrel
  4. close cargo bay doors to fire next round
  5. eject shroud when a few hundred meters away from target
  6. repeat steps 2-5 for 3rd shell

Improved over previous version by attaching side armoured plates in mostly independent structural points. 6 medium range guided missiles added for self defence.
