The Mobile Exploration Platform is a ship geared toward exploration, and survival in Wormhole space for those trying to carve out a niche, or just operate for a few days. As a result the Sisters of EVE developed a ship which could provide pilots with a safe haven for short term operations. The vessel, with usage of a specialized Localization Module, the vessel will deploy a small shield bubble, and function much like a POS in the sense of not being able to move. The shield bubble will deploy to be 7500m is size from the centerpoint. This will allow two ships to safely sit within. The EHP of this shield (and the deployed ship) will be something to the effect of 2.5M EHP when in deployed mode. When deployed, 6 specialized Sentry Drones will deploy in stationary positions surrounding the platform with a 30 kilometer range with approximately 25K EHP with 99% resists when in deployed mode while ship present. This module will only be usable once per 24 hour period, but will be able to be forced out of deployment mode. The module will require isotope-based fuels. The ship will be capable of accommodating one Strategic Cruiser (largest type), one scan frigate (largest type) and one harvest frigate.
5% bonus to ECM Burst strength and range per level
10% reduction in ship mass per level
5% bonus to scan strength per level
This ship will be incapable of utilizing Covert Ops Cloaking Devices. It will be a armor tank, capable of fitting a basic passive tank, a prop mod and an ECM Burst. This ship will also be able to utilize an Expanded Probe Launcher.
Any ship being carried by it will drop on a percentage base (possible loot piñata). The security of this ship will be based on either coordination with other pilots, or just pilot skill.
Also, it would be restricted do being able to deploy it's localization mode in J-space. This ship would provide an ideal base of operations for pilots who plan on spending any long amount of time in Shattered WH systems, as no structures can be permanently anchored.
