It was announced on 13th May 2015 that this ship was being retired. No new projects to obtain this ship may be slotted for the summer 2015 event, but any existing projects may (and should) be completed, as these projects will be removed at the end of the 2015 festival.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Risian corvette was initially designed as a racing ship for entertainment purposes. The ship's incredible speed and maneuverability drew the interest of the Lobi Crystal Consortium, who purchased the rights to manufacture armed versions of the vessel. There's a long waiting list for ships from the first Lobi production run of Risian corvettes, and deep space explorers and hotshot pilots traveling through more dangerous areas of space will often put a deposit down months in advance for the chance to acquire one.
This agile ship was designed with one purpose in mind: speed. As such, it is capable of overcharging most standard engines to achieve speeds that other vessels could never hope to match. Its EPS manifolds are custom tailored to bring extra Engine energy to bear, and its sleek design allows for a smaller sensor shadow making it more difficult for enemy weapons to lock on while traveling at high speeds.
The Risian Corvette comes with a [Console - Universal - Subspace Wake Generator], allowing the ship to have a burst of near-warp speeds for a short period of time. The subspace wake left behind the ship when active will inhibit an enemy ship's speed and turn rate, as well as hull distortions to the infrastructure.
It also comes with an innate Defense bonus based on the ship's speed, granting a Defense bonus up to +15%.
Players can choose between R.X.S. or their faction's native prefix.
Variants[edit | edit source]
