Hirogen Lockbox and Lobi Ships
 

 

Versatility and preparedness are hallmarks of a successful Hunter, and Hirogen Hunter Vessels exemplify these qualities. Alphas that command these vessels tend to outfit them in a manner that favors heavy firepower, but their adaptability is ever-present nonetheless, allowing many options for overcoming your Prey in battle.

Alternate Ship Material Options

The Hirogen Hunter Heavy Escort is both agile and incredibly durable for a ship of the Escort category, and offers a wide range of tactical options when faced with unforeseen circumstances.

This ship comes equipped with an Enhanced Inertial Damper Field Universal Console that can allow the Hirogen ship to perform a tactical maneuver allowing them to rapidly turn 180 degrees. During this maneuver the Hirogen ship is incredibly difficult to hit. After the maneuver has been completed, the Hirogen ship gains a tactical advantage that makes it both difficult to hit and deals more damage for a short period of time. This console can be equipped on any Hirogen starship and any standard Escort, Raider or Raptor.

All Hirogen Ships possess Long Range Sensor Masking. This passive ability grants the Hirogen ship a small amount of Stealth, which will render the Hirogen craft undetectable at long range.

Equipping both the Enhanced Inertial Damper Field and the Photonic Decoy Swarm (info below) will double the Defense and Damage Bonus gained by activating the Enhanced Inertial Damper Field.

Hirogen Apex Heavy Battlecruiser

Alternate Ship Material Options

The Hirogen Apex Heavy Battlecruiser is a truly fearsome vessel that is well suited to hunting down even the most deadly prey. The Apex lacks the maneuverability of its Hunter counterpart, but compensates with tremendous hull and shield strength.

This ship comes equipped with a Photonic Decoy Swarm Universal Console. This ability will baffle enemy sensors by creating a series of Photonic Decoys which create "ghost" energy and hull signatures almost identical to the vessel that deploys them. By launching several of these Decoys at a time, the effects are enough to frustrate most enemies into letting their guard down, allowing the attacking Hirogen to gain the tactical advantage in any conflict.

All Hirogen Ships possess Long Range Sensor Masking. This passive ability grants the Hirogen ship a small amount of Stealth, which will render the Hirogen craft undetectable at long range.

Equipping both the Enhanced Inertial Damper Field and the Photonic Decoy Swarm will double the Defense and Damage Bonus gained by activating the Enhanced Inertial Damper Field.
