Idris frigates are one of Aegis’ larger present-day designs (in prior years, the company’s shipyards turned out everything up to battlecruisers).
Frigates such as Idris-M are bigger than a bomber but smaller than a ship of the line. While they lack the heavy armor and the capital weaponry of a cruiser, frigates are more maneuverable and are very configurable.
A mark two "peacekeeper" variant of the Idris, developed for the UEE patrol services. The Idris-P lacks the ship-to-ship gun and spinal mount of Idris-M in favor of additional cargo capacity and superior speed.
