In the few short months since our founding, Phoenix Arms has established itself as a first-rate supplier of advanced Matari engineering technology. We have produced and sold thousands of units from our flagship product line, the Phoenixfire Series of shipboard autocannons. Building on our success, we now plan to apply the same commitment to quality and performance to the field of advanced starship manufacturing.

Phoenix Arms has been one of several technology firms that, in association with Core Complexion, have come together to design the ultimate platform for the upcoming Disruption Field technology. Today we unveil the Broadsword Heavy Interdiction Cruiser.

Built on the sturdy and reliable Rupture-class hull*, the Broadsword combines power, mobility and durability in one package. While full technical specifications are not yet available for public review, the Broadsword promises to be a welcome addition to any combat fleet. Its shield subsytems, a wonderful fusion of Minmatar and Caldari technology, provide unrivalled durability without sacrificing mobility. The Broadsword’s flexible hardpoints are optimized for use with autocannons, but will also accept missile systems, energy vampires and utility modules with ease.

But these incredible offensive and defensive systems only serve to support and augment the Broadsword's primary role, that of deploying a Mobile Warp Disruption Field. The WDF enables the Broadsword to disrupt the warp drives of all hostile ships up to 20 kilometers away, or to guarantee the warp disruption of a single target at a range of approximately 30 kilometers. This point-disruption mode is so powerful that it can even disable the jump drives of supercapital-class warships!

We expect the first Phoenix Arms Broadswords to reach the open market within the week. As with all products, prices will reflect market demand. For direct sale inquiries or for bulk purchase negotiations, please contact our Director of Sales, Ella Phoenix.

*Phoenix Arms Broadswords are built exclusively from specially-prepared Rupture hulls manufactured by Reawakened Technologies. RE-AW secured this contract with Phoenix Arms based on their consistent commitment to providing high-quality starships at competitive prices.

Just a thought, but has anyone every questioned the logic behind naming it the "Rupture"-class hull...

Are not RUPTURES exactly what we DON'T want in our hulls?

Someone should hire a new marketing agent.

Seriously Rodj, If you didn't know who Wren is and where he comes from, you need to fire your intel people.

Mark me down as interested. This technology sounds quite intriguing! Has anyone tested how well this works against known warp core stabilizing devices?

The Disruption Generator technology appears to work on roughly the same concept as the Disruption Sphere launcher, as far as I understand it - unlike warp scramblers, which feed junk data to the ship's transluminal navigation control computer, the warp disruption field (produced by both the bubble and the generator) actively prevents warp bubbles from forming within their radius, which means that stabilisers are completely ineffective.

In essence, Mr. Ixiris is quite correct. When the focused disruption mode is activated, the device does operate on a different principle than typical warp disruption devices. While the exact mechanism is rather involved, I assure you that there is currently no shipboard system capable of initiating warp or jump drives while under assault from this focused disruption. Barring future advances in warp core stabilization technology, there is no escape from a Broadsword.

I would have thought that even you would understand the difference between buying something from a market that offers pre-deal anonymity to both parties and the sort of deal implied by this: Phoenix Arms Broadswords are built exclusively from specially-prepared Rupture hulls manufactured by Reawakened Technologies. RE-AW secured this contract with Phoenix Arms based on their consistent commitment to providing high-quality starships at competitive prices.

I wish I could say that there was some grand conspiracy at work here. The truth is that our business relationship with RE-AW is no different from any business relationship you might have with Amarrian firms. They're one of a limited number of firms that have he capacity to manufacture enough specially-prepared Ruptures in the volume we require.

Of course, we could have chosen to buy our ships on the open market. However, it would have been more expensive, less convenient, the ships we bought would have to be extensively retrofitted and given our current base of operation, many of the ships we bought would have been manufactured by RE-AW anyway. And so, an exclusive contract was the best way to ensure high quality and low price.

Of course, as a private citizen, I don't really believe that Reawakened Technologies are any more terroristic than ... well, PIE. And now I've insulted you both, so perhaps I should just shut up. I'm sure my shareholders would appreciate it.

Well, you know, you should avail yourself of the opportunity to purchace a Broadsword, Rodj. Pretty good ships - and the Amarrian counterpart is behind, way behind. Won't do at all. That said, most Amarrian ships seem to be lacking in most areas but abundancy - quite hard to find a decent ship that the Khanid didn't make. I mean, impressive armour, yes, devastating firepower, but no staying power. Capacitor problems plague my friends in Dichotomy, even those who have trailed exclusively for Amarrian ships.

I once received a suspension and was nearly expelled from the Imperial Academy for flying a Minmatar Breacher frigate. I have to admit while the ship was nothing more than a pile of scrap metal and duck tape, it was entertaining to pilot. I don't fly Amarrian ships exclusively like many of my fellows, but whatever ship is best suited for a task.

So Wren, we could talk business if you wish.

In order to produce the strongest, lightest cruisers, Re-Aw uses a patented process of annealing under a Fluoride atmosphere to yield high-quality strands of small-crystal Tritanium which are then woven to produce resilent, yet slightly flexible armor plating. This ancient Minmatar technique was lost for many years following the Long Night, and only recovered after Re-Aw extracted samples of ancient body armor from archaeological sites in Hjoramold and Inder.

To provide for the needs of the Broadsword Heavy Interdiction Cruiser, Re-Aw paid special attention to the electronic hardware of the vessels, and the operating system, providing a simple, modular system with accessible hooks into the operating system to allow the interfacing of new modules and scripts without risking the security of the core systems. This is version 3.1 of the original RE-AW "RAWR" OS, and represents the culmination of our research to date into the fusion of Angel and Sansha computing technologies.

Precisely. I'd like to see anyone, Amarr, Minmatar, Gallente or Caldari build a ship that has any ammount of staying power against thirty ships.

I would like to extend my personal congratulations towards both Wren and Phoenix Arms. The development of any starship is a tremendous endeavor, especially one as complex as this state of the art heavy interdictor. I, for one, cannot wait to get my hands on one.

I'm surprised to see sane business principles so ardently embraced by a matari business institution, I can only hope your people take this as an example and continue to move away from savage zealotry and work with the forces of law, order and commerce instead of against them. Your corporation is a credit to your people.
