All Amarr Subsystems

Amarr Subsystems

Legion Core - Augmented Antimatter Reactor
Comprised of countless nanomachines that enhance the energy flow from a ship's antimatter reactor, this core subsystem offers a pilot the option of increasing the power grid and capacitor capacity of their vessel. Designers of Tech III vessels were initially hampered by the problem of how to design a modular ship that could swap out basic engineering upgrades on a per-need basis. This proved particularly true when it came to reinforcing a vessel's power grid and capacitor banks without the use of batteries. In the end, the provision of nanomachines constructed from fullerene-based polymers allowed for solutions that had only existed in theory up until that point.
Legion Core - Dissolution Sequencer
This subsystem employs a nano-electromechanical dispersion field to strengthen a vessel's sensor systems. Made from a complex system of neurovisual interlays, automated trigger response units, and billions of advanced molecular-level circuits, the subsystem offers improved protection against hostile ECM as well as improved sensor range and target acquisition speed.
Legion Core - Energy Parasitic Complex
During some of the first conflicts with them, Amarr engineers noticed a remarkable feature in Sleeper drone technology: the ability of drones to transfer power between one another without the need for specialized equipment. This technology seemed to be innate to every drone in some capacity, and while the engineers could not reproduce this system in modern space vessels, they were able to adapt the technology into modular Tech III designs. The energy parasitic complex turns the Sleeper tech on its head, changing the energy transfer from a symbiotic function to a vampiric one by providing a boost to energy neutralizer and energy nosferatu equipment.
Legion Defensive - Augmented Plating
Although this subsystem uses the same armor nano-assemblers as standard empire technology, various optimizations have been made. Taking full advantage of recently discovered Sleeper designs, the use of fullerene-based technology has allowed for the combination of far more compact and resilient armor components.
Legion 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. The Amarrians are suspected to have developed cloaking technology for the Legion around the same time as the first capsuleer designs began to surface. For almost a full week, Minmatar rebel camps deep inside Heimatar and Metropolis were subjected to ruthless guerilla attacks, almost unprecedented in their ferocity and viciousness. Although initially confused by such a marked changed in their opponent's warfare philosophy, the Matari knew that each target had been a high profile objective for the Imperial Navy, and noted with deep suspicion how all of the squads had been spearheaded by Legions that could hit and fade with alarming ease. Few doubted who was behind the bloodshed. The Amarrians remained silent for the most part, the only official statement; that God's will had manifested itself in the heart of evil.
Legion Defensive - Nanobot Injector
The advanced Sleeper-based technology in this subsystem is focused on increasing the effectiveness of a vessel's armor nanobots. When integrated into the hull of a Legion, it offers a substantial increase in the armor output of any local repair modules fitted. Although the subsystem offers the same end result as other built-in armor repair augmentations, the technology driving it operates in a vastly different way, allowing for easy removal from its host vessel.
Legion Offensive - Assault Optimization
Originally a laser-based weapons system, Amarrian starship engineers were forced to seek alternative construction methods when several fatal flaws were discovered in their design. Khanid Innovations was quick to offer a missile-based solution that benefitted greatly from their years of experience working on Sacrilege cruisers. The reapplication of their previously successful technology was so fast and effective that the more traditional Amarrian engineers could do little but watch as the knowledge and consequent implementation of these new engineering methodologies proliferated across the cluster.
Legion Offensive - Liquid Crystal Magnifiers
One of the many gems discovered amidst Sleeper technology was the creation of more efficient liquid crystal lenses. Amarr researchers have engineered these lenses to increase a laser's focus for longer stretches, both in distance and in timing, allowing a laser to reach farther targets with more efficiency of energy output. Additionally, the fullerene-infused lenses can generate higher temperatures and stronger, more damaging beams and pulses.
Legion Offensive - Support Processor
After countless failed projects over the years, the dream of linking fleets with sub-Battlecruiser hulls was eventually shelved and relegated to the realm of engineering theory. It remained this way for some time, tempting few starship manufacturers to revisit the challenge, even after the discovery of ancient Sleeper designs and the influx of fullerene-based technology. It was not until the first Strategic Cruiser hulls began appearing in small numbers across the empires that they began to truly appreciate the potential Tech III vessels had for modifications. Not long after, the first support processor housing became a reality, capable of mounting command bursts and repair projectors with equal ease. Although what it delivered as a standalone unit was undoubtedly impressive, what would count more in time was the way it served as a catalyst. The unit demonstrated to the wider spacefaring industry that the possibilities for Tech III ships were broader than first imagined, and in doing so, it heralded the beginning of even more radical and innovative designs.
Legion Propulsion - Intercalated Nanofibers
Constructed from hard yet lightweight fullerene polymers, these intercalated fibers boost the speed and agility of a starship without compromising its structural resilience. Even though basic nanofibers have existed for hundreds of years, the integration of various Sleeper-based salvage and other polymers takes the technology to a completely new level of modularity. This has allowed the same centuries-old technology to be ported over to the new Tech III paradigm.
Legion Propulsion - Interdiction Nullifier
Dubbed the “interdiction nullifier” by the Guristas, who suffered its first introduction on the battlefield, this subsystem grants a startling and unprecedented capability; an immunity to non-targeted interdiction such as mobile warp disruptors and interdiction spheres. The origins of the first “nullifier” designs are shrouded in mystery, but the subsystem's initial production of is thought to have taken place soon after the wormhole openings, and well before the technology became widespread knowledge. Not long after the first Tengu were designed, the Caldari Navy intercepted emergency transmissions from Guristas fleets across Venal, Tenal and Vale of the Silent. All of the reports made mention of Loki-class vessels slipping past defensive deployments and into core Guristas territory despite all efforts to stop the ships or slow them down. Following these reports, rumors spread that other groups began to discover and implement this extraordinary new technology, and yet of all the factions that leapt upon the opportunity, none were so eager or ruthless in their own race to capitalize as the independent capsuleer and pirate organizations that make the nullsec frontiers their home.
Legion Propulsion - Wake Limiter
This subsystem limits the wake left behind by a starship's afterburner or microwarpdrive, allowing a pilot to maintain a lowered signature radius while still moving at high speed. The underlying design is based on the same technology used by smaller Sleeper drones and empire-produced Interceptors. Although the engineering processes behind wake limiters have existed for quite some time in the empires, their application in modular subsystems has only become a possibility after fullerene polymers became more widely available.
