Weapons of victory: Destabilizing mortar
Type: Kinetic weapon
Compatibility: Kris AE and premium ships of the ECM interceptor role
Despite the disappearance of the Technologists, the Sentinels continue to manufacture new ships and weapons. Currently, the interceptors of their strike squadron are armed with destabilizing mortars. This weapon is mounted on the Kris AE and has an interesting feature. Its projectiles form a small cloud upon detonation, which deals damage to all enemies within it using their main weapons. Due to this effect, ECMs can attack the enemy without fear of return fire. As a gesture of cooperation with mankind, the Sentinels provided this mortar to the United Mercenary Centre. The pilots appreciated the new toy and now most of these ships use this weapon exactly.
From the report of the UMC supervisor
A few hours ago, the Jericho AIs, who call themselves “Sentinels”, provided us with their design. They call it a destabilizing mortar and speak of it as an extremely effective weapon. Indeed the effect when shooting is curious. But the most important part is that they do not require money for the blueprints and say that this is a gift as a sign of friendship between mankind and AI. They never speak of their emergence, referring to the secrecy of information. Their objectives are also unknown, but most likely they were left by the Technologists in order to look after their laboratories and caches. I recommend continuing cooperation with the Sentinels in order to get more information and technology.
