Star Conflict 1.5.2

824129cb0d6ebba6f405bf3b0ee3.jpg

The management of shipyards reconstructed after the war with the Aliens, reports on the readiness for the production of new unique ships of higher ranks. It's time to try out the new tech in battle! Engineers report on new active modules and weapons available for recon interceptors and engineering frigates. And also about the unique opportunity for pilots to independently configure their combat interface!

 

Empire Long-range Frigate ‘Project 101’ (Rank 17)

359d887812a801ad4e26f8ed256d.jpg

One of the worst military failures in the history of the Empire is rightly considered to be the third war for the Bartle sector. It was then that the scientific elite of the Wardens, loyal guardians of the Emperor, had the idea of using the enemy's own weapons against them. They created the 101 series ships, equipped with limited AI. According to the idea, they had to explore the distant sectors without pilots and give the Empire an advantage in the future war. Though some say that the goal of the project was actually to find the source of the Signal. The Imperial Fleet gave away old frigates, left from the time of the Direktorium, to the project. They were numerous and in those years frigates were considered ineffective. Equipped with automatic repair and self-upgrade systems, the ships launched towards uncharted space. Then the Invasion began and project 101 was forgotten.
And now, hundreds of years later they returned. Beaten in unknown fights, changed beyond recognition, bearing age-old wisdom and secrets of the cosmos.

 

Special Module ‘Disintegrator’

  • Launches a carrier rocket with a drone armed with a disintegrator.
  • The drone is automatically activated and controlled by the pilot.
  • Pressing the activation key again allows you to switch control between the drone and the ship.
  • Each shot of the disintegrator deals additional thermal damage.
  • The damage dealt depends on the level of the main weapon installed on the ship.
  • The drone is self-destructed if the host ship flies too far away for too long.
  • Destroying the drones will unmask the host ship's position.

 

‘Disorient gun’

  • EM Weapon.
  • Enemies hit by this weapon temporarily lose the ability to lock targets.

 

‘Sharpshooter Mode’ active module

  • Locks multiple targets in a cone and starts accumulating a charge.
  • When charge accumulation is completed, a volley is launched.
  • Secondary activation of the module launches an early volley.

 

CPU modifier ‘Disintegrator Booster’

  • You can only mount one modifier per ship.
  • Increases disintegrator rate of fire.

 

Federation Interceptor ‘Spike’ (Rank 17)

After the collapse of the Empire, the fragments of its military-industrial complex were scattered over different corners of space. Something was destroyed, according to the emergency protocols, other things fell into the hands of the new factions. When the Republic of Separate Worlds appeared on the star map, few believed that these rebels could achieve even a grain of greatness of the old Empire, because there were no significant industries on their territory. In many respects, thanks to this, the RSW retained its independence. But laboratories, shipyards and assembly shops have never been the heart of Imperial power. Its beating burning heart was the people — scientists and lab technicians, engineers and designers. The RSW has many bright minds. Thanks to the financial protection of several investment funds, they managed not only to restore most of the old projects, but also to start several new ones. Their first brainchild was the Spike interceptor.

 

Special module ‘Plasma Web’

  • Releases a plasma web that deals thermal damage if the target continues to move.
  • Accumulates a charge for each destroyed opponent.
  • Each accumulated charge increases the damage of the special module.

 

‘Doppler Laser’

  • Beam weapon.
  • When flying at afterburner speed, weapon damage increases depending on travel time.

 

‘Energy-burning Mine’ active module

  • Places a mine that burns the energy of enemies in range and then explodes dealing EM damage for each point of energy burned.

 

CPU modifier ‘Maneuver Co-processor’

  • You can only mount one module per ship.
  • Passive mode improves maneuverability of the ship.
  • With activation of a special or an active module, the bonus to maneuverability sharply increases.

 

Jericho Tackler ‘Singularity’ (Rank 16)

0fb23ed57f74a1c51c19f7a72a39.jpg

Any mercenary has heard of the mysterious cast of Technologists — a part of the Jericho. Many even worked for them, but no one faced the Technologists alive. The caste has always been closed, even inside Jericho itself. They say they did not worship machines, but considered themselves one with them. But when almost all of Jericho disappeared, and with it the Technologists — their machines remained.  Now the former stations of the Technologists are controlled by a network of many integrated AI systems, which call themselves the Sentinels. The goals of the Sentinels and their true nature are still a mystery, even for the remaining Jericho.
Despite the fact that the machine mind operates on a completely different level than the human mind, the Sentinels can negotiate with people. Numerous contracts have already been agreed between them and the Mendez family, as well as a number of other factions. Emissaries and diplomats of the Sentinels are autonomous AIs, enclosed in the hull of a powerful combat vehicle — the Singularity fighter. Possessing free will, these ships sometimes strike contracts with pilots and come to their service. 

 

Special module ‘Long Dive’

  • Makes the player's ship invisible for a long time. At this time, shield regeneration slows down and module cooldown time increases.

 

‘Accelerator Gun’

  • EM Weapon.
  • Each critical hit increases the speed of the following projectiles.

 

‘Trap Mine’ active module

  • A booby trap is placed upon activation. Enemy ships in its range can't leave the area.

 

CPU modifier ‘Drone Booster’

  • You can only mount one module per ship.
  • Increases damage of all allied drones within range.

 

Jericho ECM Interceptor ‘Zhen’ (Rank 17)

bb909221e2304eb64ba1bb9596f9.jpg

A terrible tragedy befell the Great Jericho Family Liu in the early years of the Invasion. Monolith — the family ark city was infected with a terrible biomorph virus. The disease, which destroyed almost all of the Family, was called the Liu Virus, in tribute to the tragedy. Since then, Monolith remained a grim reminder of the horrors of the Invasion. The surviving members of the Family, without their home, became eternal exiles. The departed among the departed. Many of them were then given refuge by the UMC.
But after the disappearance of the greater part of Jericho, something clicked in the depths of the cursed ark. The ancient automatics came to life again, and soon new ships appeared. Zhen is the first of them. A masterpiece of an ancient master who perished in a tragedy. Guided by limited AI, these interceptors attack anyone who approaches them. Anyone but Liu's heirs. Many regarded it as a sign sent by Bartle. The family reunited. They find the ships wandering through space, clear them of the remnants of the virus and ship them to the UMC. The Liu remember that mercenaries are the only ones who did not turn away from them in the tragic hour.

Global fleet revamp

The UMC continues large-scale pre-series testing of new equipment. Ships designed at the dawn of the game continue to receive the latest unique equipment and capabilities!

Attention! We recommend that you acquire and upgrade the latest equipment as soon as possible! Improved modules and ships will also help pilots get ranks faster in the upcoming new player progress system, which will be launched in the near future.
