The Operator is a fighter modeled after the cutter class. Though it has very short range, enemies caught within its firing arc are quickly destroyed by its Rupture overdrive.

Note that Tier 8 ships have a fixed repair time which is not affected by equipment.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Like other Tier 8 ships, the Operator has greatly increased movement speeds over Tier 7 ships and thus can better dodge incoming shots and rearrange fleet formation. It also has a fixed repair time of 2 hours, regardless of equipment, so it could return back to the fray in a relatively short amount of time.

Compared to the Valrayvn, it has increased maximum mass and reduced unladen mass, allowing it to field more equipment.

Upon exiting Phase State, it fires a burst of projectiles that have a huge damage bonus. The damage inflicted is capable of one-shotting many enemy ships, especially when the Nova Driver is used (though the weapon has an extremely narrow range band on this ship).

It has a passive Ablative Suppression effect which, on hit, reduces the ability of enemy Umbra ships to regenerate their Ablative Armor.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Operator is somewhat slower than the Valrayvn when not in Phase State. As a result, you must rely on Phase State to get in range in order to defeat them.

Moreover, its range is capped at a measly 3 km. This means that the Valrayvn can easily get a few shots off before this ship can even start to deal damage. If not flown properly, Operators may be prematurely forced out of Phase State and become sitting ducks.

Its damage output heavily relies on its Rupture overdrive, which only activates upon exiting Phase State. Without it, its damage output is actually worse than the Valrayvn's, with two firing arcs compared to one for the Operator. Operators can thus be defeated by preventing them from entering Phase State, such as via the Renascence Battlecruiser's Feedback Loop or through sheer damage.
