Support ships, engineered for field assistance in large engagements.

Following in the time-honored Caldari spaceship design tradition, the Basilisk sports top-of-the-line on-board computer systems specially designed to facilitate shield transporting arrays, while sacrificing some of the structural strength commonly found in vessels of its class. Developer: Lai Dai Lai Dai have always favored a balanced approach to their mix of on-board systems, leading to a line-up of versatile ships but providing very little in terms of tactical specialization. With the Basilisk, their aim was to continue pushing forward the development of cutting-edge defense optimization systems while providing powerful support capability.
The Guardian is the first vessel to feature Carthum Conglomerate's brand new capacitor flow maximization system, allowing for greater amounts of energy to be stored in the capacitor as well as providing increased facilities for transporting that energy to other ships. Developer: Carthum Conglomerate While featuring Carthum's trademark armor and hull strength, the Guardian, being a support ship, has limited room for armaments. Its intended main function is to serve as an all-round support vessel, providing the raw energy for fleet compatriots to do what they need to do in order to achieve victory.
Designed specifically as an armor augmenter, the Oneiros provides added defensive muscle to fighters on the front lines. Additionally, its own formidable defenses make it a tough nut to crack. Breaking through a formation supported by an Oneiros is no mean feat. Developer: Roden Shipyards Deciding that added defensive capabilities would serve to strengthen the overall effectiveness of Gallente ships, who traditionally have favored pure firepower over other aspects, Roden Shipyards came up with the Oneiros. Intrigued, Gallente Navy officials are reportedly considering incorporating this powerful defender into their fleet formations.
Built with special tracking support arrays, the Scimitar was designed in large part to assist heavy combat vessels in tracking fast-moving targets. Relatively nimble for a support cruiser, it can often be found ducking between battleships, protecting its own back while lending the behemoths the support they need to take out their enemies. Developer: Core Complexion Inc. Core Complexions ships are unusual in that they favor electronics and defense over the "lots of guns" approach traditionally favored by the Minmatar. Being a support cruiser, the Scimitar therefore fits ideally into their design scheme.
The first modification of Triglavian ship design using the methods of Tech II invention and construction, the Zarmazd builds on the Collective's Rodiva-class support cruiser to create a logistics cruiser adapted for capsuleer use. The Zarmazd's design combines elements of the Amarr Guardian-class armor logistics cruiser's technology with the Triglavian ship frame, energy system and signature adaptive mutaplasmid repair system. The Zarmazd's remote repair systems are considerably enhanced by adaptive armor-repair mutaplasmids that are used as nanite feedstock for its remote repair projectors. As the armor-repair mutaplasmid stream is able to adapt itself in real-time to specific target ship conditions far more efficiently than standard armor-repair nanites, the efficiency of armor repairing performed by the nanite stream on a given target increases over time towards a maximal repair output. "It proved possible to adapt the ship specifications provided to incorporate some of the improvements found in our own advanced logistics cruisers. The Guardian's high-output nanofabbers were readily altered to support the production of armor-repair mutaplasmids and, while the engineering challenges were novel, the increased flow and unusual nanotopography were ultimately incorporated without great difficulty. It should be noted that any competent nanotech engineer could reproduce these adaptations using the Rodiva's specifications as a basis." – excerpt from a report from the Office of the Fabricator-General of the Imperial Navy
