Interplanetary Drive System

Interplanetary Drive System technology is used to power interplanetary travel within planetary systems.

Manufacturing[edit]

Known interplanetary drives for WarShips, DropShips, and Small Craft are manufactured on the following planets:

Sarna
BBP Industries [4][12][13][17]

Note: The Excalibur was retrofitted with "enhanced" versions of the Mule's GE 2080 drive sometime around 3025 by the Draconis Combine due to scarcity issues.

GE 2080-II[edit]

Typically used in Manufactured on Manufactured by References
Excalibur Tharkad Semier Data Tron [18]

Note: Modified version of GE 2080. Used by SDT on Lyran-built Excaliburs after 3020s-era Kuritan proof of concept.

Note: Manufacturing ended in 3022. Drive maintenance issues forced the Successor States to begin salvaging vessels for parts in the lostech ebb of the Third Succession War. House Kurita engineering teams began using the Mule's GE 2080 around 3025 and Lyran SDT used a modified GE 2080 II version. Rashpur-Owens restarted production capability sometime prior to 3054.
