Special Edition Covert Ops

"Terror and murder are tools that serve our great work well but only fools mistake them for ends in themselves. When an atmosphere of unremitting fear is to our purpose, by all means we should horrify and cow the weak with the ferocity of slaughter we bring to their pitiful communities. Even still, the greatest terror can be evoked with the hidden blade and subtle whispers from the shadows unseen. The Great Truth can only be approached by those who master all the ways of power: bloodthirsty fools and unreasoning murderers can never make progress on our path." – Omir Sarikusa, Meditations on a Crimson Chalice
The Chremoas is the Angel Cartel's take on the Covert Ops ship. Don't let the class designation fool you, the Chremoas is a more than capable combat vessel that takes advantage of a covert cloak, advanced targeting systems previously only seen on stealth bombers, and ample medium power module slots to pick and control the fights it knows it can win. By the time you see a Chremoas decloak, the fight is already over.
Based on the Triglavian Damavik-class frigate, the Hydra is an experimental vessel from the Society of Conscious Thought that melds elements of Society technology and design philosophy, with the underlying hull and unique Triglavian systems. In particular, support for covert ops and scan probe technology was added to the ship's already formidable array of capabilities. In mid YC120, the SoCT provided limited numbers of blueprints for the experimental Hydra design as part of their sponsorship of the capsuleer Alliance Tournament XVI.
Notorious across New Eden, the Pacifier-class frigate has made its name as CONCORD's premier fast-attack frigate, capable of laying waste even to the Angel Cartel's legendary Dramiel-class high-performance frigates. Originally based on a hybridization of the Punisher and Rifter frigate hulls, CONCORD's Directive Enforcement Department became concerned early in the Drifter Crisis that the design could no longer meet its needs. The Pacifier joined other ship classes in the DED inventory as part of CONCORD Aerospace's "Force Majeure Program" to develop enhanced variants. While CONCORD Aerospace successfully upgraded the Pacifier and other DED vessels with hyper-advanced technology, the program became a severe drain on CONCORD's resources. Consequently, the Inner Circle authorized a limited release of the Pacifier, stripped of CONCORD's advanced rapid-deployment and electronic warfare suites, to the capsuleer market via authorized dealers.
As competition from upstart narcotics gangs across New Eden have become more and more of a concern for Serpentis Corporation leadership, the decision was made to commission a new frigate design for elite Guardian Angel strike teams. These teams would need to be able to travel across the entire cluster undetected and be ready to crush whatever resistance the local drug lords might muster. The resulting ship combines all the strengths of a Nemesis-class Stealth Bomber and the classic Daredevil attack frigate. Rumors of the incredible capabilities of these ships have started to spread through New Eden's criminal underworld, bringing with them a clear promise. If you encroach on the business of the Serpentis Corporation, the last thing you see will be a Virtuoso decloaking.
