Sentry Patrol Frigate by ILJackson Sentry Patrol Frigate by ILJackson
The Sentry-class patrol frigate is Kugler-Vaugh's latest attempt to corner the light combat warship market. Riding high off of outlandish sales of its Commando Corvette and Lancer Frigate, the Sentry is the latest model, and the largest. The Sentry is moderately armed with four particle beam cannons, two quad-barrelled defense turrets, two missile launchers and its most unique weapon, an electromagnetic pulse ejector which can disable even hardened vessels with enough direct hits. 
However, the frigate is most notable for its extensive communications and electromagnetic countermeasure array, its extremely fast speed and its significant cargo capacity. These features make it attractive to mercenary units, planets with significant smuggling problems, as well as pirates and pirate hunters.
What makes the Sentry controversial is that virtually everyone knows KV stole the designs from Hashimaru Aerospace Industries in a blatant, and allegedly bloody, raid on one of its research and development shipyards. Advertisements even hint and suggest at the act, further solidifying KV's reputation as a rogue and maverick company. Such acts have always enhanced the company's reputation among its target markets: frontier worlds and mercs, but some say it may have gone too far this time and there are rumors and concerns regarding a full-on corporate war between Hashimaru and Kugler-Vaughn.
Even this, however, have not hurt the company's sales, which now dominate everything from light transports to frigates.
The utility of the Sentry is undeniable, making it an all-purpose go-to frigate for just about any scenario except heavy combat.

Love the design, but have you done any of the stats for it? Like crew compliment, weapons, etc.

This is well used in a four ship group.  This is the command ship, plus two corvettes and one frigate and I see the beginnings of a deep behind the lines raiding, gerrilla warfare and comerce raiding.

 I like the simple and crisp lines of your designs. They look much more believable as far as being something that is mass produced. It makes me think of the WW2 mass produced vehicles that were churned out by the tens of thousands.
 In addition I hope your watchers take the time to read the descriptions of your pictures. They are very imaginative and full of inspiring ideas that I find very entertaining. It would be fun to work on a project with you one day.

I actually do a lot of WWII analogy in my space setting, so that kinda makes sense. And thanks!
