FLEET REPLENISHMENT SHIP

Fleet Replenishment Ships (FRS) are military versions of Freighters but are more heavily armed and armored then a Civilian Freighter. These are mostly cargo space, minimal passenger accommodations (barracks only) though they can be fitted for troop transport when needed. Replacement crew are sometimes carried in cold sleep tubes for transfer to ships needing replacements.

FRS have no landing/hanger bays. They have shuttle bays and usually dock directly to a ship that is being resupplied. They have no Vipers or launch tubes. FRS are always escorted by destroyers or are part of a larger force.
