Caldari Defensive Subsystems

Caldari defensive subsystems.

Tengu Defensive - Amplification Node
When confronted with the challenge of adapting Sleeper designs to produce shield boost amplification systems, Caldari engineers turned to the defense systems used by certain Talocan structures that had also been found in a few ancient ruins. In some rare cases, the shielding systems on Talocan facilities were constructed using a harmony of Sleeper and Talocan designs. The first successful production of a shield boost amplification node drew heavily upon early study of this particular combination.
Tengu Defensive - Covert Reconfiguration
From the moment Strategic Cruisers became a reality, there were whispers amongst the scientific community about the potential for advances in cloaking technology. They remained that alone for the longest time, with few involved in the reverse engineering process willing to share any news of their discoveries. Everyone knew that, should the technology ever become a reality, the capabilities of the new Strategic Cruisers would change overnight. Emboldened by the development of other, more specialized subsystems, engineers and astrophysicists alike began to investigate modifications to a Strategic Cruiser that could aid their fellow scientists and explorers. The first reverse-engineering projects were predominantly focused on ways to improve a vessel's astrometric capabilities. The two-pronged solution of boosting both the strength of the launchers and the probes they deployed proved to be the most popular design in the end. It was not long after the first designs were sold that others took notice and began to reverse-engineer their own. Soon enough, the subsystem was catapulted into mainstream Tech III subsystem manufacture, although perhaps for more than just that one reason.
Tengu Defensive - Supplemental Screening
Making full use of recent scientific advances afforded by the discovery of ancient technologies, Caldari starship designers have reverse engineered the equipment behind the Sleeper's metallofullerene armor plating. Through a complex substitution method, skilled engineers and physicists have been able to supplement a Tengu's shields, offering increased survivability for a pilot under heavy fire.
