The Ox-class tug carries a drive field stabilizer that allows a fleet to reach a higher burn level. It's rare to see more than one or two of these in a fleet, however, due to prohibitive fuel consumption and high maintenance costs.

–In-Game Description

Overview[]

The Ox tug is an utility frigate which increases the strategic map travel speed(Burn/Sustained Burn) of all ships in the fleet with its Drive Field Stabilizer. Each Ox increases the travel speed of the fleet by one Burn level. This Burn level is NOT multiplied by Sustained Burn; for example a ship with Burn level of 8 and an accompanying Ox will have Burn level of 9(8 + 1) and Sustained Burn level of 17(8 x 2 + 1) The Burn bonus applies to Ox itself and can be stacked with multiple tugs in the fleet up to the usual Burn limit of 20.

In addition to Civilian-grade Hull frigate sensor profile penalty the Ox's Drive Field Stabilizer further increases its sensor profile by an extra 200 points for a total of 260. New players in particular need to be aware that this will noticeably increase the range at which the fleet is detected. The sensor profile can be halved using the Insulated Engine Assembly hullmod but even then it's up there with capital ships(130 for Ox with Insulated Engine Assembly, 150 for capitals)

Because speed of the fleet is based on the speed of the slowest ship, given the penalties and maintenance/fuel cost of the Ox it may be preferable to simply make the slowest ship(s) in the fleet faster with the Augmented Drive Field or Militarized Subsystems hullmods, or the Bulk Transport Skill(the latter two for civilian ships only)
