"Some companies want to make sure their sierras are future-proofed properly. When energy weapons become the standard, you can be sure the Anlace is not going to be replaced."
―Anonymous UNSC sailor

The Anlace-class frigate (hull classification code: FF) is an advanced light-tonnage warship that is utilised by the UNSC Navy after the Human-Covenant War. As part of the Post-War Fleet Line Initiative, the Anlace is designed to fulfil the niche of ground-support craft and fleet support frigate. It is specifically tooled to combat opponents equipped with energy shielding, such as space fighters, corvettes, and other frigates, and can provide precision fire in support of ground troops.

The Anlace-class frigate represents one of the biggest departures from the traditionally-accepted school of escort design, using two radical ideas that allows it to capitalise on its far more nimble skillset. The first is the installation of a smaller, turret-mounted Magnetic Accelerator Cannon over an alternative model afixed to the frigate's spine. This unusual idea ensures that the Anlace can deliver devastating barrages on enemy vessels without turning their bow to a desired target. The second change is the installation on reversed-engineered directed energy weapons, which offer vastly-increased precision and reduced ammunition requirements over conventional missiles and cannons. When combined with first-generation energy shields afforded to modern warships, a single Anlace-class frigate can provide enough covering fire to offset two or three Great War-era frigates.

The concept of the Anlace-class was first unveiled to the UNSC Naval Procurement Board in 2552, with their customers authorising the construction of a single flotilla for testing purposes. While issues borne from its integrated weapon systems would see the first of these frigates being commissioned years later, their impressive capabilities would see them being mass-produced as per the Lovejoy-Jameson Act. They were deployed at prestigious posts, supplementing the Strident-class heavy frigates of the UNSC Infinity and protecting the research facilities of Onyx.
