The God of the forge and craftsmanship, Hephaestus was responsible for creating the mythical equipment of the gods such as Hermes' winged helmet and sandals and Achillies' Armor. He is associated with industry and was worshiped by artisans throughout ancient Greece.
When the popular, Armadillo came up for refurbishment it unfortunately did not meet our new higher standards for ship building. Instead of spending an exorbitant amount of time refitting it we decided it would be better to design a successor. Enter the Hephaestus, Bigger and more powerful in every way to its predecessor it was developed to take advantage of the our Cargo Packs.
Numerous attempts at designing the Armadillo's successor had failed. Mostly due to the Standardizing of our Docking Spaces. After some time we've revised some of our docking sizes but chose to maintain our SPV sizes as it has proven to be extremely versatile. 6 new Thumper Arrays have been installed, slow firing but none the less powerful rounds can slice through shields with ease while twin Target Lock Missiles make up the finishing blows. Defensive Systems include a Radar jammer to sneak through hostile territory. A Beam tow has been installed to bring in Freight and any other goods you might find.
We've removed some functionality from SMD in preparation for a migration to new forum software. We expect to make the move before August.
