The Manticore is loved by frontier officers for its ability to rapidly bring firepower to bear in small engagements and loathed by Domain strategic planners for interfering with the orderly schema of official fleet doctrine. The Manticore's oversized primary weapon mount and built-in rangefinder are a gunner's dream but allow this destroyer to easily overextend itself in battle. That, operators argue, is what the canister flak system is for - and stripping the paint off your allied ships, as the old joke goes.

A healthy respect for intimidating firepower in a small package see this design continue in the service of fleets of the Persean Sector. When the opportunity presents itself, pirates are particularly keen to recover a Manticore hull and apply blood-red livery to their overgunned prize.
