Compact Kearny-Fuchida Drive


The Compact Kearny-Fuchida Drive performs exactly as a regular Kearny-Fuchida Drive. The compact version, however, has only half the mass of a corresponding regular K-F drive and a more resilient structure (better core/helium tank integrity). It is also five times more expensive than a corresponding regular K-F drive.[1] Compact K-F drive technology is exclusively used on designated combat JumpShips (WarShips).


The Compact K-F Drive is manufactured in the following systems:

  • The Battlespace rulebook defines those JumpShips mounting a compact K-F drive as WarShips, whereas ships with a regular K-F drive are considered (civilian) JumpShips even when mounting weapons or fighter bays.
