Hiigaran Unknown Vessel 17 (Field Frigate?)

Homeworld 2


Paladrache brought this one to my attention. On the second page of the HW2 print ad now running in PCGamer and CGW, hiding behind the ion trail of an interceptor is a ship we haven't seen before. It's in the distance and at a very low level of detail, but still clearly different from any ship profile we're familiar with. Judging by the surrounding vessels, it appears to be roughly frigate-sized.

Uberjumper suggested that this is a Defense Field Frigate with LOD problems. On closer inspection of the Field Frigate, I noticed that the Field pods probably fold up, resulting in a clean configuration like this.

There is no confirmed official information on this ship as yet.
