An excellent harasser and support frigate, the Vigilance-class has oversized (for its class) energy and missile mounts. While it shines in a fleet setting, it can be easily overwhelmed by large numbers of smaller threats.
The Vigilance brings impressive capabilities to the battle, if its weaknesses can be mollified. Its unique combination of oversized weapon mounts give this class of frigate access to long range support weapons not normally found on ships of this size. However, with weak armor, a weak hull and unexceptional mobility, this strength can only be utilized effectively when protected by a large fleet.
