ML06 Freij in civilian colors, Tri-System circa 2790 (larger).
The Freij is a high-end heavy fighter available on the private market in the Tri-System. The Freij was designed by Ares Systems. Its development lead to a military variant, the ML3B Freij. The design was followed by the ML6A Freij MK II, a superior fighter design.
One of the Tri-System's best known pilots, Clevis "Guts" Nugget, flies a Freij. Political and business figures often fly Freij as well, seeing them as a status symbol: Xavier Shondi and Arl Shoeyer both use Freijes as their personal transports. In 2790 a wealthy Freij pilot was disabled in a Papagod attack, and rescued thanks to the coordination of Military Emergency Control. The Freij is also decidedly the ship of choice of the Tri-System League of Hunters: five of their pilots, Brad Stroker, Simon Charger, Sken Calvuchi, Bullman Korder and Nudger Carlson, are Freij pilots. Pirate organizations fly the fighters on occasion, too - Papagod Freij pilots once joined in a coordinated attack on the CIS Kaitlin.
The Freij entered service before 2785. A notable Freij is U130_016F (2785), whose license was suspended until trial in 2790.
