Armored thrusters are very powerful engines, that (at level III) combine Rear V and Rotation IV thrusters along with very high armour, at the expense of strafing speed, higher mass and repair. These make them very powerful for every Demon Corps Hulls. They were firt unlockable during the event Incursion.
Strategy and Setup
Its main advantage is its extra 10 m/s making it possible to catch Hulls with Fusion Thrusters. Since only DC hulls can equip it it will outrun any faction (Besides Xeno) making it incredibly useful in PvP
Another main advantage is its armour, improving Demon Corps ships health moderately, the armor provided to roughly equivalent to Zynthium IV. It is strongly recommended on Demon Corps hulls.
The engine has minor disadvantages but it does have some, one being the fact that you have one degree less in turning then you would with on Fusion thrusters making it harder to rotate.
Every Demon Corps Hulls should equip this thruster due to its superiority over Fusion. When equipped on the Hellfire Battleship it is able to catch other battleships and travel faster making it excellent for PvP or PvE.
The Covenant cruiser can benefit from these too, being able to fly and turn faster while improving armour to the point of catching a cutter. Basilisk cutter benefits from this engine too, getting extra armor and speed.
- Armored Thrusters are the first Legendary Engine/Thruster
- Armored Thrusters were the first Engine to improve HP
- Its Xeno variant the Xeno Armored Thrusters is very similar to it as it only has less mass and more armor compared to the original.
