From Age of Rebellion

Kuat Drive Yards’ Nebulon-B frigate was built as a replacement for the Class-C frigate and was one of the first capital ships deployed to Imperial Navy fleets, coming into service alongside the first Victory-class and Imperial-class Star Destroyers. Designated an escort frigate by the Imperial Navy, these ships are typically assigned to roles considered beneath the expensive Star Destroyers, such as convoy escort, scouting, and picket duties. Long and deceptively fragile-looking, these vessels consist of a multi-deck forward section mated to a bulky aft engineering section by a single thin spar. They are powered by a KDY 8,000 anti-matter reactor, which develops thrust through a cluster of seven Kuat Galaxy-1 5 ion engines.

These frigates carry a surprising amount of weaponry for their size, including a dozen turbolasers, numerous light laser cannons, and even a trio of tractor beams. Along with the energy weapons, they can also carry two squadrons of twelve TIE/ln fighters docked to the central spar. Together with their heavy armor and sturdy shields, these make the Nebulon-B frigates formidable opponents. Much to the Imperial Navy’s chagrin, a handful of these powerful frigates have fallen into the hands of the Rebel Alliance, either through capture, salvage, or the defection of their officers and crews. In fact, they are one of the most common capital-class vessels fielded by the Alliance, and many, if not most, fleet actions fought by the Alliance include Nebulon-B frigates on both sides of the fight. This has given rise to at least one Imperial admiral lamenting that, just once, he would like to destroy an Alliance ship that the Empire hadn’t built.
