Military-grade power core Affiliation: Open Market Manufacturer: Various Type: Generator UpgradePower Supply: N/A Sensors: N/A Size: Varies by ship Composition: Lightweight Durasteel Alloy DESCRIPTIONAs their names might suggest, military-grade power cores are equipped to most military vessels in order to generate the considerable amount of power necessary to successfully operate the numerous high-end systems used by most military-grade ships. They do so by making use of a hypermatter annihilator, which allows for the generation of a significantly superior volume of power in comparison to civil-grade power cores. Military-grade cores can also be installed on non-military vessels as a ship-upgrade. While they are not necessarily required, they allow a vessel to operate systems such as enhanced navigation computers, military-grade shield projectors, tractor beams, boosted sensors, and boosted communications more comfortably; whereas ships operating on lesser generators might struggle to deal with the stress of such systems. These power cores are particularly popular with smugglers and other criminals who might be looking to heavily customize their chosen starship. The additional power generated makes it easier for their vessels to handle the stress of their numerous modifications. In these cases, the new military-grade power core would replace the standard generator and was usually placed in the most protected hold in the ship. LEGALITYLegal, although performance enhancing systems are considered enhancement charges if used in the commission of a crime. Non-military-grade vessels equipped with military-grade equipment are also likely to undergo more scrutiny in spaceports on many worlds and systems. INTENTTo create a means by which freighters and other vessels like them can be upgraded to handle more power-stressful modifications. ADVANCED TECHYES. Military-grade power cores are extremely expensive and hard to come by outside of a registered military organization. A tech plot of 2-3 threads will be required to obtain one.
