The Anlace-class frigate[2] was a frigate class starship in service within the UNSC Navy by at least 2558.[3] The UNSC Infinity can house ten Anlace-class ships in its underside compartments.[2] Anlace-class ships were manufactured at Mars and Tribute.[4]

Class HistoryEdit

Sometime after the Second Battle of Requiem, the UNSC Infinity switched out its complement of Strident-class heavy frigates for Anlace-class frigates.[3] Anlace-class ships were also deployed to fight Covenant remnants occupying parts of the Outer Colonies.[4]

Anlace-class ships were with the Infinity when it was deployed to Kamchatka.[5]


The Anlace-class lacks a spinal mount for a Magnetic Accelerator Cannon.[6] It also places a heavier emphasis on atmospheric operations by utilizing maneuvering systems well adapted for atmospheres and using a lifting body design.[5]


The Anlace-class was a unique departure from typical UNSC vessels. The Anlace does not use a MAC gun or missile batteries; instead being one of the first warships to utilize Directed Energy Weapons. This makes her unique among the frigate classes.[5]
