Alliance Renames Frigates

By Amita Quita

VANCOUVER, EARTH– The Alliance Starship Classification Board (A-SCB) announced what appeared to be a minor yet significant change in nomenclature for two classes of frigates based on the design of the SSV SR-1 Normandy. The Alliance stopped the construction of SR-1 class frigates and moved to expand the fleet with SR-2 class based designs while it kept the designation of SR-2 for the ship captured from Cerberus in early 2186. This led to an overlap of alphanumeric designations for both classes.

The Board designated the earlier ships as the SR-1 Mk. I series while the newer ships as SR-2 Mk. IIs. Confidential sources from within the Alliance Acquisitions and Procurement Office (A-APC) told ANN News that this was a stopgap measure until such time as the Alliance leadership started the process to phase out the earlier models.

Construction of the third tranche of SR-2 Mk.II frigates began on the January 3 with the SSV San Carlos, the twelfth frigate of the class commissioned by the Alliance Navy in recent years.
