The Fralthi II-class Cruiser were a class of cruiser used by the Kilrathi Empire. These ships first appeared in the computer game Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger.


The Kilrathi sought to replace the aging Fralthi-class Cruiser before the Battle of Earth in 2668. The result from years of design and planning was the new Fralthi II-class cruiser. These cruisers were massed-produced and become the mainstay cruiser-class for the Kilrathi fleet. Almost every Kilrathi task force had at least one Fralthi II cruiser in its fleet. Like the Bhantkara-class Heavy Carriers, these cruisers proved their worth in the Battle of Earth, which almost crippled the Terran Confederation.

The Fralthi II cruisers were a bit larger than their predecessor and much more armed. The Fralthi II cruisers measured at five hundred and fifty meters long and weighed about twenty-three thousand metric tonnes. These cruisers were meant to outmatch the Confederation's mainstay Tallahassee-class Cruisers. The Fralthi II cruisers were equipped with fifteen heavy laser turrets for defense against starfighters and capital-ship fire fights. It is uncertain how many starfighters the Fralthi II can house, but the fighter complement is considered light, if any.

The Fralthi II-class cruisers would continue to serve the Kilrathi fleet up until the end of the Kilrathi War in the year 2669. Any surviving Fralthi II cruisers would still continue service for the Kilrathi, although they were refitted for peace time.

In the gameEdit

This Kilrathi capital ship is seen only three times in the entire game. Loconda 3, Hyperion 2, and the Return to Freya 1.  With the exception of the Hvar'kann-Class Dreadnought, it is the deadlist capital ship in the fleet.  It is so dangerous to challenge this capital ship, not even a bomber can withstand its firepower.  The best tactic against these vessels is unless you have more than one torpedo, don't challenge this unless you can evade its rain of laser fire.  If there are other capital ships, have them engage the cruiser and if your craft hasn't taken a lot of damage, draw its fire.
