Mainwaring-Moore Engineering MM-193 Chariot Frigate
The solid and reliable MM-193 Chariot is found escorting all manner of SSA vessels, often working in a duo with a WDN-109 Riposte. With the high manouverability and acceleration that is the SSA trademark, it handles it's job well. The Chariot's forward dome houses the powerful Dewhurst D504 Electronics Warfare suite, enabling the Chariot to provide ECM coverage to it's squadron. As it's primary role is escort, the Chariot carries twelve light hyper-ray cannons, mounted in individual turrets, rather than the more typical blister. The Chariot is not completely without teeth, however, as it carries a particle pellet cannon on each wing. This armament allows the Chariot to fight at any range. This has the disadvantage of a limited fire-arc, but one which can be equally conpensated for given the Chariots' manouverability, especially at the more critical shorter ranges.
