Infidel Raider[1]

Infidel Raiders are Chaos Escort class ships.[4]


The Infidel's design originated in late M40 from the orbital shipyards of Monsk as part of an effort to provide a larger version of the Cobra Destroyer; the designs for the vessel were stolen before they could be submitted to the Fabricator-General of Mars. A few years later, a series of attacks against Imperial outposts and convoys by ships bearing similar design to the escort ship were reported. As time passed, the area of these attacks grew wider as raiding fleets were reported in Segmentum Obscurus and Segmentum Solar.[1][4]

Imperial efforts to reconstruct the stolen plans resulted in the development of the Falchion Escort class. In 938 or 939.M41, the two "sister" classes (the Falchion and the Infidel) would confront each other for the first time in a naval battle over Sabatine.[3]

For combat, Infidel vessels are equipped with Torpedo tubes and Weapons Battery.[1]
