The Anlace-class frigate[1] was a frigate class starship in service within the UNSC Navy by at least 2558.[2] The UNSC Infinity can house ten Anlace-class ships in its underside compartments.[1] Anlace-class ships were manufactured at Mars and Tribute.[3]

Class HistoryEdit

Sometime after the Second Battle of Requiem, the UNSC Infinity switched out it's complement of Strident-class heavy frigates for Anlace-class frigates.[2] Anlace-class ships were also deployed to fight Covenant remnants occupying parts of the Outer Colonies.[3]

Anlace-class ships were with the Infinity when it was deployed to Kamchatka.[4]


The Anlace-class lacks a spinal mount for a Magnetic Accelerator Cannon.[5] It also places a heavier emphasis on atmospheric operations by utilizing maneuvering systems well adapted for atmospheres and using a lifting body design.[4]


The Anlace-class does not use a MAC or missile batteries, instead using Directed Energy Weapons. This makes her unique among the frigate classes.[4]
