The October is a frigate hull that has less firepower than a typical destroyer but allows the installation of modules for troop transfer. Adapted from In-Game Description

The October is the Tier 1 Frigate hull of the People's Realm.

Overview & Strategy

With a Flag level of seven and a reasonably fast (for PR) construction time, the October Hull can make a good interceptor or long range scout/explorer. Frigates are the base chassis for a few select roles, most notably planetary raiding. However, carrying troops and cargo is something the October does not really have the capacity for, sporting only 2 Medium and 4 Small general slots. The Tier 2 Izzvil is better for this role.

Despite this, the October has a few niches to fill. Its weapon load-out is similar to the Stallion destroyer, but the October relies primarily on Small weapons, which are easier for a new player to unlock. Compared to the destroyer, the October is both cheaper and faster to build, and is more fuel-efficient, making it a better choice for convoy escort between systems. This allows the PR player to free up their powerful destroyers to serve in dedicated combat formations. In the mid-to-late game, making several of these as swift replacements for lost Stallions can help rebuild a fleet caught in a war.
