The NTF Iceni is the command frigate of the Neo-Terran Front, built under Admiral Bosch's direction at the Freedom shipyards in Polaris, captured by the Neo-Terran Front at the start of their rebellion. With over two dozen turrets and a sheath of ultra-dense depleted uranium shielding around its subsystems, the Iceni is an extremely tough nut to crack. With Bosch on board, providing tactical guidance, the Iceni is the equal of any GTVA battle group. Intelligence believes the ship was custom-designed for a secret NTF project.


speculative, non-canon information. Take with a grain of salt

The Iceni is one of the unique designs in Terran history. Build as the NTF's command frigate at the Freedom shipyards in Polaris, the Iceni was built to help facilitate the completion of Admiral Bosch's ETAK project. The frigate possessed superior firepower, armour, and speed to the smaller Deimos-class corvettes. From the moment the Iceni was first encountered in the Deneb system to the nebula beyond the Knossos subspace portal in Gamma Draconis, the Iceni was subject to continuous attacks by Allied forces, none which managed to destroy her. It was later revealed that this was mostly intentional, as Allied Command wished to acquire the ETAK technology. The end of the Iceni came in the nebula during a rendezvous between the Iceni and the Shivans. Intending for his followers to board Shivan transports to the unknown, Bosch activated the Iceni's self-destruct system. Allied forces managed to retrieve the specifications of the ETAK device just before the self-destruct system activated. The rumours of further Iceni-class frigates have yet to be substanciated. No evidence exists suggesting any more ships of the type were completed, although it is likely that Alliance is now in possession of the vessels blueprints and would be able to replicate it should it be required.

Veteran Comments

The Iceni has decidedly FS1-era anti-fighter armament, but if your capital ship approaches from the right side, prepare for a severe beatdown as it cuts loose with paired BGreens. The Iceni is capable of tearing a Deimos or Sobek to shreds, so while it may be corvette-sized, it is destroyer-armed.

The Iceni is in a class of its own. It has slightly better armour than any other corvette, nearing that of a destroyer, and is a very speedy for a vessel its size. It also has substantial anti-fighter armament in good places, and is capable of taking on large ships without too many bruises. However, an Orion would have it for lunch.

However, its anti-fighter capability is noticeably less than that of the GTCv Deimos or even the GVCv Sobek
