Kannon-class Project K744 Guided Missile Frigate

The Kannon-Class Guided Missile Frigate also known as the Project K744 GMF is a escort-tonnage warship serving as the standard frigate of the Colonial Pact Trade Alliance powers and as a commercially available combat platform in use with various security forces and private entities albeit in a non-military configuration.

Designed from the ground up to provide more utility than merely a warship, she is capable of both carrying her own complement of strikecraft. Additionally up to a battalion of troops can be carried in various configurations with the capability to deploy them to the surface and support them once in action with various orbit to surface weapon systems. However she still retains the ability to operate as a fleet combatant with a mixed array of weapons available to her including long range anti-ship torpedoes and missile systems, both kinetic and plasma based direct fire weapons, and a powerful suite of passive and active decoys and jamming systems. These features aiding in her primary role as a fleet escort vessel.

Launchers and Munitions


3x Missile Packs
The CPML Type A is a standardized missile package oriented on anti-fighter and anti-missile capabilities of the SN900V 'Sapphire-M' Standard Space to Space Missile. These systems can also be used against surface targets and can serve in the light long range anti-ship role albeit with limited ability due to their smaller mass and warhead size.
30 Missiles Per Container, 10 Containers per Pack
Full Standard Load of up to 600 Missiles


1x Missile Pack
The CPML Type B is a standardized package oriented on the long range anti-ship S700V 'Moojeni' missile system, a heavy and large weapon intended for use against cruisers and other capital ships it has various warhead and attack configurations and can be used against surface targets and orbital infrastructure.
3 Missiles Per Container, 10 Containers per Pack
Full Standard Load of up to 30 Missiles

Molniya Missile Component

A direct fire system capable of operating automatically and independently from the ship's fire control system, it is part of the Molniya point defense complex and consists of twelve Atrop type short range missiles in two pairs of six on either side of the gun system. These are primarily employed to both increase the range of the system and increase the chance of a kill. Once expended the complex must rotate to a specific position to allow reloading arms the twelve seconds it takes to refeed the twelve tube launchers.
12 Missiles per Complex Ready to Use, Two combat ready spare loads.
Total of 60 Missiles Ready Use with 120 in ready combat reserve.
