Effectively combining the trapping power of interdictors with the defensive capabilities of heavy assault cruisers, the heavy interdiction cruiser is an invaluable addition to any skirmish force, offensive or defensive. Heavy interdiction cruisers are the only ships able to use the warp disruption field generator, a module which creates a warp disruption field that moves with the origin ship wherever it goes.
Caldari Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
The Onyx is the Caldari Heavy Interdictor. It is designed to be heavily shield tanked, and has a large number of mid slots and a hull bonus to help this. The main purpose of the Onyx is to carry the Warp Disruption Field Generator module, which produces a warp disruption bubble around the ship.
The Onyx and the Minmatar Broadsword have the same slot layouts and are almost identical ships, however the shield resist profile on the Onyx is less even than the Broadsword, making it vulnerable to EM damage. As such the Broadsword is slightly preferred, but the Onyx performs almost as well. While the armor tanked Devoter can field a larger tank in terms of raw EHP, a shield tank benefits from passive regeneration, which is important because a HIC using a Warp Disruption Field Generator cannot be remotely repaired and the passive regeneration over the duration of a bubble cycle can amount to tens of thousands of EHP
