The Lancer Frigate is a 250 meter long cruiser designed specifically to combat Rebel starfighters. It was designed after a group of starfighters destroyed the Death Star. A Lancer has 20 Corellian AG-2G quad laser cannons designed for use against high speed, maneuverable starfighters. The weapons have superior tracking and targeting capabilities. The Lancer has no other weapons for engaging capital ships. Their hull armor plating and shields can't stand up to very much. The ships are best used attacking Rebel starfighter bases. Many times they are used to supplement Imperial warships. The biggest problem with the Lancer Frigate is that it is very expensive compared to it's actual utility. They cost as much as any other heavy battle cruiser, but are only sufficient to combat starfighters.
