Frigates were large and powerful multipurpose warships. In heated battles they could stand their own against any enemy ship, with the exception of Ship of the Lines. The Frigate's high speed made them the preferred ships for escorting faster merchant vessels. Their speed also made them ideal for missions involving patrolling, either solo or in pairs. Frigates were also used to hunt pirates and blockade enemy ports.
