EF76 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate

Also known as the Nebulon-B, the EF76 Escort Frigate has been an important mainstay of the Rebel Alliance Fleet throughout the Galactic Civil War. Wanting to directly support the fight against the Empire without drawing unwanted attention to themselves, Corellian engineers purportedly built a civilian heavy transport, but deliberately and extensively over-engineered the original specifications. Among the largest ships built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation, its modular design is easily refitted for military use, where it fills an important gap in the Rebellion between the nimble Corvettes and larger but far more expensive Calamari Cruisers, and performs admirably alongside purpose-built capital ships.

While often deployed protecting transport convoys from Imperial attacks or pirate raids, many individual ships have seen further customization to a variety of specialized roles. Because of this flexibility, frigates have been utilized to fulfill command and control, long range scouting, anti-starfighter, and medical facility purposes.

In its most common configuration, the Nebulon-B bristles with laser turrets covering every attack angle from enemy starfighters, as well as numerous heavy turbolasers allowing the frigate to go head to head with much larger starships. Despite its obvious weak spots, it has proven to be a versatile and capable warship in battle and remains popular with its crews and commanders.
