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 unlockable during the event Incursion.
Strategy and SetupEdit
Armoured thrusters are exclusive to Demon Corps ships, they offer a very ideal bonus speed and armour with a slight decrease in turning, they can out run the Fusion thrusters which very prevalent in mid level and high level fleets. Equip this on any of your Demon corps ships.
When used on the Hellfire battleship,it makes them both fast in rotation and forward speed, making them very mobile with enhanced robustness. 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.
Its main advantage is its extra 10 m/s making it possible to catch Hulls with fusion thrusters. 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. It also has the extra weight making you lose mass that would go into weapons and armour, this is considered negligible as Demon Corps ships tend to have excessive amount of mass. Its availability to only Demon Corps hulls also is a huge factor for this engine.
