Dropsuit Command

In this branch of The Skill Tree we have the skills that give access to the various Dropsuits available to a Mercenary in Dust 514. They can be broken down into sub categories known as Frame Sizes. As development on the game progresses each Frame size will get a Racial variant for each of the four races in the game. As with the Weaponry of Dust 514 they come in Standard, Advanced and Prototype versions with greater capabilities as a player skills up into them.

First shown at Dust 514 Keynote at the 2013 Fanfest, the full Racial Dropsuit lineup for Light, Medium and Heavy suit types.

Light Frame

The Light Frames have less CPU and PG as well as minimal armour and shielding. They make up for that with speed and agility on the battlefield.

Medium Frame

The Medium Frames have more CPU and PG than the Light Frames with the corresponding increase in Shields and Armour. They are slower and less nimble in the war zone than the Lights but are the mainstay of a corporations offensive capabilities.

Heavy Frame

The tank of the Dropsuits. They have the largest amount of Armour and Shield's and are the only Frame size capable of powering the heaviest weapons available to Mercenaries, The HMG and Forge gun. They are the slowest of the frame sizes and their turning ability is reduced by the extra armour they carry. They excel at point defence and suppression fire.

Basic Suit Types and Specialisation

Each of the Frame Sizes can also further split into two categories, Basic and Specialised.

Basic

Easier to skill into because of their lower Training Cost Modifier and are less expensive to buy, but they have no bonuses per level given to them. However, at Level III of the skill giving access to them you can then train into a Specialisation for that Frame size.

Specialisation

Each of the Frame Sizes can be split into two different Specialisations. Not all of these are yet available in the game but they are included here with a brief explanation of their planned role on the battlefield.

Light Frame-Pilot

Coming Soon TM. This role will provide bonuses to vehicle use for both ground based and flying types.

Light Frame-Scout

Scouts make for great infiltration and assassination as they are granted a bonus of 15% reduction to PG/CPU cost of cloak field per level. As of Uprising 1.8, they now have 2 equipment slots. Scan Profile bonuses allow for scouts to get underneath scans, while Amarr now specialize in detecting (as of 1.8 Charlie hotfix). Minmatar specialize in Nova Knives as well as hacking, enabling them to be the quickest objective and installation hackers in the game.

Medium Frame-Logistics

Logistics suits can have the largest number of Equipment slots in the game. They provide support to your team by reviving, repairing, resupplying, reinforcing your team, creating rally points, and giving valuable enemy locations. They provide a bonus of 5% reduction to PG/CPU cost of equipment per level across all racial variants with a race specific bonus as well. Amarr focuses on Drop Uplinks, Caldari has a focus on Nanohives, Gallente is well equipped for Active Scanner usage, and Minmatar makes the best use out of Repair Tools.

Medium Frame-Assault

Meant for being a versatile frontline fighter, these suits provide a bonus of 5% reduction to PG/CPU cost of light/sidearm weapons and grenades per level across all races with the usual racial bonus as well. Each race provides bonuses to that race's weaponry: Amarr uses Laser weaponry, Caldari uses Hybrid-Railgun tech, Gallente uses Hybrid-Blaster, Minmatar uses Projectile.

Heavy Frame-Commando

With the introduction of Uprising 1.2, these Heavy suits can carry two light weapons instead of just one, giving them a lot more flexibility to change roles as needed during the course of a battle. As an example carrying an Assault Rifle for normal operations but can carry a swarm launcher to destroy or suppress sudden deployment of a vehicle by an enemy. Likely to do this at the expense of Armour and Shield.

Heavy Frame-Sentinel

The only class of suit capable of powering the heaviest Infantry weapons in the game. Gives a +5% damage resistance to splash damage per level across all races. Depending on the race, the Racial Bonus grants various shield and armor resistances per level.
