Commissioned by the Republic Fleet to create a powerful assault vessel for the strengthening of the Matari tribes as well as a commercial platform for the Howitzers and other guns produced by the Fleet, Boundless Creation came up with the Muninn. Heavily armored, laden with turret hardpoints and sporting the latest in projectile optimization technology, this is the very definition of a gunboat.
Minmatar Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
The Muninn is a very fast, durable, and powerful ship, and has become one of the mainline subcapital ships used in nullsec fleets. While more expensive than the also popular Ferox, the Muninn's shields naturally resist all forms of damage, and with an Assault Damage Control it can be nearly immortal in tight moments. Furthermore, as most Muninn fits use artillery, a fleet of Muninns can select damage to match weaknesses and collectively one-shot enemy cruisers and battlecruisers with ease, making them difficult to combat without quickly taking losses. However, the Muninn does have several flaws:
- With only four Mid slots, it cannot effectively fit tackle or utility modules alongside its shields
- While very durable for a shielded ship, its durability is not unlimited (as some of its defense is also its speed)
- While hard-hitting, its artillery are slow-firing
- Artillery do have a limit on their range
These last three points mean that the Muninn loses efficiency in very large fleets (where artillery volleys would result in significant overkill, the Muninn itself can be one-shotted, and fights can expand beyond artillery range); and in those situations, railgun-based ships like the Eagle and Ferox become more popular.
Because of its Minmatar design, it is also possible to Armor tank a Muninn. However, this is not a common practice, as while this opens the Mid slots for utilities, and the required Low slots are available, the 90-67-25-10 resistance profile is a bit overly specialized and difficult to correct for.

We hope with these improvements the Muninn can find a place as a more agile and slippery artillery option compared to Hurricanes or even Lokis, but that’s some stiff competition so we’ll have to see how it goes.
