The Marauder-class is a missile frigate that is essentially a long-range artillery piece in space, requiring spotters to function effectively. However, whatever is caught in its missile barrage is very likely to be destroyed; any fighter group will be destroyed, corvettes and medium frigates will likely fall apart, and larger ships will suffer considerable damage. Space stations are the most vulnerable target, as they cannot evade missile launched at them, and are large and easy to hit.
If left unprotected, however, the ship is very easily dispatched, as it has weak armor and shields, is comparatively slow, and cannot use its missiles effectively at close range.
