The talon frigate is the second frigate class vessel you can produce. Compared to most other hulls, it is not a widely used due to hulls like the Exodus Cruiser, Broadsword Destroyer, and Venom Battleship outperforming it in most scenarios. It however has found a use among players as a cargo ship.
== The Gladius Talon ==
Strengths:Excellent range, great firepower, fast projectiles
Weaknesses:Unreliable in most FvF scenarios
The gladius talon is a very powerful build that is quite versatile for both farming and some FvF. The builds primary use is to reliably farm Rebel Battalions and Rebel Artillery fleets for crafting materials, however it also makes a decent low-mid level build for FvF. However, the build loses it's FvF effectiveness quickly given the presence of Insta-Broad fleets which easily shred them.
== The Cargo Talon ==
Strengths:Decent cargo space, and can escape from most encounters
Weaknesses:Completely useless in combat. But they can be used as a decoy fleet.
Cargo Talons are the most commonly used type of Talon Build apart from the Gladius Talon. They possess decent cargo space when marked up and are fast enough to escape most encounters unscathed. However, as with any cargo build, they cannot be used for combat as they are unarmed. They can however be used as a decoy in a pinch to stall a pursuer.
