All Minmatar Subsystems

Minmatar Subsystems

Loki Core - Augmented Nuclear Reactor
Comprised of countless nanomachines that enhance the energy flow from a ship's nuclear 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.
Loki 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.
Loki Core - Immobility Drivers
Even millennia old, the technology employed by Sleeper drones is far from lacking. This is particularly true in the field of interdiction technology, where their capabilities often exceed contemporary systems. Consequently, this aspect of their fearsome arsenal has been the focus of much study and in some rare cases, the starting point for scientific breakthroughs. Minmatar researchers studied the long-range webification systems of the Sleeper drones from the moment they were discovered, quickly reverse engineering a subsystem for their Loki that could replicate the Sleeper's own offensive modules. The end result is a noticeable amplification of a stasis webifier's effective range.
Loki Defensive - Adaptive Defense Node
After years of experience working with recovered Sleeper and Talocan technology from Anoikis, Sebiestor engineers have achieved a new breakthrough long though impossible: they have successfully developed fullerene nanomachines capable of repairing either shield and armor equally effectively. These tiny nanobots can actively switch between shield and armor repair on the fly allowing the Loki to achieve incredible repair systems without refitting facilities.
Loki Defensive - Augmented Durability
Capitalizing on the exceptional defensive capabilities of fullerene-based components, this subsystem allows a Loki pilot to augment their armor and shield defenses, dramatically enhancing its survivability in combat. Tiny molecular-level conduits play a crucial role in orchestrating the flow of nano-assemblers through and around the Loki, guarding the flow of vital repairs against disruptive impact.
Loki 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 Loki's Covert Reconfiguration designs arose out of a collective will to respond to what was thought to be Amarrian aggression deep inside their home regions. Unlike many scientific and technological breakthroughs, it was not the Sebiestor tribe alone who ushered in the paradigm shift to covert-capable Strategic Cruisers. It was only through consultation and collaboration with many other tribes and sub-factions that something substantial began to take shape. The Krusual and Thukker are said to have played the most important roles, however, in realizing the final design; the Thukker by providing the cloaking technology, and the Krusual by convincing them to do so. How they achieved this, or what they may have promised remains a secret; the two tribes are notorious for having many, and keeping them all.
Loki Offensive - Launcher Efficiency Configuration
Adaptation and innovation go hand-in-hand, and this subsystem is a prime example of both ideas. While researching Sleeper drone weapon systems, a group of Minmatar engineers discovered that Sleeper launcher hardpoint design allowed for a vast increase to the rate of fire without increasing powergrid requirements. The resulting subsystem allows the Loki to achieve some of the most aggressive missile configurations seen on any cruiser.
Loki Offensive - Projectile Scoping Array
Scoping arrays were mostly out of fashion in recent ship design, but Sleeper technology has brought them somewhat back into vogue. Based upon the remarkable flexibility fullerene-based technology, Sleeper-based scoping arrays allowed projectile weaponry to produce longer-ranged accuracy without reducing the weapon's rate-of-fire. While a resurgence of scoping arrays is not expected, this subsystem certainly shows its uses in modern warfare.
Loki 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.
Loki 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.
Loki 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.
Loki Propulsion - Wake Limiter
This subsystem limits the wake left behind by a starship's 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.
