Mk IX Sentinel Mine

design by Kyle Platte


These mines have been made to meet the joint Regency-Aslan requirements for a remotely deployable space-minefield that can be produced at TL-14. It is a modified version of the old Imperial Mk III with slightly downgraded endurance. Because its warhead, sensor performance and programming are identical to the original Mk III, the layout and deployment of these mines has not changed. Because of the decreased fuel supply in Mk IX mines, some Navy advisors are pushing for minefield maintenance every eight years rather than ten, to prevent degradation of minefield strength. Fleet limitations will likely prevent this in remote areas of the Regency and Aslan controlled space.

Sentinels will gradually replace all MkIII minefields in areas patrolled by both Aslan and Regency patrols.
