The last ship from the starter set and the smallest. The Augusta frigate is a little power house.
.......and that is all it will be as there is little to say about this ship. It has a good DR/CR of 4/5 and this really makes it. your oponent is going to have to put in that extra effort to damage it. Yes the CR is the same as the rest, except the EoTBS, and it is more than likely that it will go down to a critical than being damaged. To face it is quite an annoying prospect because you are going to be damaging your oponent easier and he is going to get frustrated with the resilience of your frigates.
Add in the small MAR and these guys become surprisingly tough. The fwd and aft guns are weak on there own but give excellent broadsides and mean that this ship has no real blind spots. the average AP/AA/CP of 2 mean these ships are good value and no easy targets.
