The UEA Oculus


Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description

In the weeks leading up to the Fall of Jupiter, the Oculus electronics ship was jury-rigged by Jovian engineers using a science ship spaceframe built for sorties into the Jupiter-Io flux tube. Several Oculus prototypes escaped. The Oculus mounts incredibly powerful sensors and ESM gear, granting it a number of novel tactical abilities. In addition to excellent tracking of incoming, outgoing, and proximate subspace traffic, the Oculus can intercept, decrypt, and even forge secure transmissions. Most critically, it can sometimes jam GTVA direct-fire beam weapon targetting, allowing nearby ships critical time to engage and nullifying one of the GTVA's main advantages.

The Oculus is more of a prop than a real ship, but it still has to be protected. Can easily be destroyed by a wing of errant assault fighters, which can seriously change the course of some missions.
