All Gallente Subsystems

Gallente Subsystems

Proteus Core - Augmented Fusion Reactor
Comprised of countless nanomachines that enhance the energy flow from a ship's fusion 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.
Proteus Core - Electronic Efficiency Gate
New technologies have resulted in a noticeable increase in CPU efficiency, as better nanotech enables further miniaturization of circuits, the result of which is a marked decrease in system bottlenecking. This electronic efficiency gate capitalizes on that technology, offering a pilot greater CPU output and significantly improved sensor integrity.
Proteus Core - Friction Extension Processor
The friction extension processor capitalizes on recent advances made in fullerene-based component development. The system works on a similar design to interdiction spheres by expanding a ship's warp interdiction range. The technology behind it has existed in theory for some years, dating back to when engineers first began development of Heavy Interdiction Cruisers. They noticed an increased efficiency in the electronic disruption of fullerene molecules when combined with the static disruption energies of the spheres. When more fullerene-based materials suddenly became available, it was only a matter of further testing before theory became reality.
Proteus 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.
Proteus 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. To many Gallente and Caldari, the development of the Proteus covert reconfiguration signaled a repeat of the technological arms race that arose from the ashes of Crielere. Once again seeking a balance of power, and entirely convinced that the Caldari were attempting to reverse-engineer their own cloak-capable Strategic Cruisers, the Federation diverted immense resources to their research. Private firms and the largest of conglomerates all played a role in development, offering up prototype designs and speculative theories that collectively resulted in some of the first Covert-Capable Proteus produced. It is not known who, or what organization led the project. Nor is known when, or where, the first Covert Reconfigurations were deployed. If it had not been for capsuleers developing the same designs, most people would have remained oblivious to their existence, just the way the Federation would have preferred.
Proteus 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 Proteus, 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.
Proteus Offensive - Drone Synthesis Projector
Sleeper drones, while completely devoid of modern shielding technology, are nonetheless sturdy, mainly due to their metallofullerene armor plating and hull composition. Most of these technological applications are for capsuleer vessels, but a few rogue Gallente firms have quietly created this bay for use with contemporary drones. When drones are docked into this system, the projection system enhances their damage capabilities, both in absorbing and delivering damage, through the creation of a fullerene-based field around the drones.
Proteus Offensive - Hybrid Encoding Platform
This complex armature is composed of fullerene composites and based upon the understood weapons mechanics of salvaged Sleeper drones. Gallente researchers have fused this technology with the emerging theories on magnetic resonance encoding and microwarp capabilities to power the kinetic energy systems of hybrid turrets. With these mechanics in place, the hybrid encoding platform creates an effective distribution module for hybrid charges, bolstering their damage output and their falloff range.
Proteus 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.
Proteus Propulsion - Hyperspatial Optimization
This subsystem improves the agility and warp speed of a Proteus-class Strategic Cruiser. With the influx of fullerene-based polymers and the discovery of Sleeper drone technology, the same fundamental principles once only sparingly employed in advance scout vessels such as Covert Ops and Interceptors could be re-applied to modular Tech III vessels. Although the Caldari claim to have been the first to successfully reverse-engineer these subsystems, the Federation argues that they were the first to deliver the breakthrough. Despite the contention, neither party seems keen to publicize the research data necessary to back their respective claims.
Proteus Propulsion - Interdiction Nullifier
Dubbed the “interdiction nullifier” by the Guristas, who suffered its first introduction on the battlefield, this subsystem integrates and improves the performance of interdiction nullifier modules. 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.
Proteus Propulsion - Localized Injectors
This subsystem uses molecular-level nanotubes to increase the combustive efficiency of afterburners and microwarpdrives. Fuel is injected locally in a far more effective and controllable manner, thereby reducing the draw on the capacitor system and increasing heat tolerances during active operation.
