General

The Harrier Frigate is a beginner level, tier one Miner Rebellion hull. It is the first frigate and second ship available for research to players(after the voyager corvette.

They are generally only used by new players, and are quickly replaced by strong ships. Some use harrier frigates as decoys.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages:

Harrier Frigates and most frigates in general are only powerful when given the enough speed and reflexes in combat. Frigates are incredibly agile ships and thus very maneuverable allowing many tactics usual hulls cannot pull off.

As for the Harrier Frigate it starts with no special slots but this is fixed with the Mk II Upgrade which is very cheap to make. This allows it to be a decent early game kiter until you unlock the Rancor Battleship.

Many high level players sometimes use the Harrier Frigate to pull certain hulls away from the formation to usually pick at them 1 by 1 or destroy them while they're distracted.

Disadvantages:

Harrier Frigates are still extremely fragile and usually the lowest armored Tier 1 Hull. Thus, cruisers and battleships can usually decimate the frigate with Explosive/Energy weapons.

Harrier Frigates are usually too weak to due very efficient kiting and such the Rancor Battleship should be used instead for the Harrier as it is more durable and an equip much more tech.

Like all Tier 1 hulls aswell, it is instantly replaced by the far superior Talon Frigate which can do mcuh more in combat than a Harrier Frigate can.

Setup:

Trivia

  • You receive one free Harrier frigate at the beginning of the game.
  • You receive another free Harrier frigate at the second day of playing VEGA Conflict. Despite this, you must still research them in the Ship Lab.
  • In the early stages of closed beta, this ship could move swiftly backwards, this was nerfed due to it allowing as low as level 8 to take out more or less any NPC fleet with ease.
  • Due to the inability to equip thrusters , the MK II variant of the Harrier Frigate used to receive a 10% boost to DPS instead of a +10 % thruster speed in other Mk II frigates. This has since changed.
  • Like most frigates, the Harrier is named after a bird. The harrier is any one of several species of hawk that fly low over the ground while hunting.
