Hull: Moa Class
Role: Heavy Interdiction Cruiser
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.
As befits one of the largest weapons manufacturers in the known world, Kaalakiota's ships are very combat focused. Favoring the traditional Caldari combat strategy, they are designed around a substantial number of weapons systems, especially missile launchers. However, they have rather weak armor and structure, relying more on shields for protection.
Caldari Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
5% bonus to kinetic Light Missile, Heavy Missile and Heavy Assault Missile damage

Heavy Interdiction Cruisers bonuses (per skill level):
10% bonus to Light Missile, Heavy Missile and Heavy Assault Missile max velocity
5% bonus to Warp Disruption Field Generator scramble range
• Can fit Warp Disruption Field Generator
20% bonus to all shield resistances
Base Time to Warp
Base Time to Warp is essentially the time needed for this ship to align and accelerate until it reaches 75% of its top speed and goes to warp. The time displayed here is the base calculated time with no account for any warp related skills, modules or any other effects.

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
