Spaceship Engineering Technology
Available To: All Major Factions
Prerequisite: Specialized Space Forces
Difficulty: 150
Unlocks: Tier 2 Corvette Hull
Required By: Advanced Intelligence


The Intelligence Warfare technology unlocks a new hull class for use in Ship Design and construction once researched, namely the Corvette. Although players will likely pick up its prerequisite early on in order to build Tier 1 Frigates, Intelligence Warfare is not immediately useful to an early-game player. As Corvettes are Tier 2 vessels, players must also research Tier 2 Shipyards and perform that upgrade before they may build any of these ships.

As a rule of thumb, Syntis and Ripchee corvettes are stronger in combat than those from either of the Human factions. In any case, more research will be needed in order for the player to unlock the various specialized modules exclusive to Corvettes, such as Cloaking Modules and Mine Detectors.
