A tanker of vast capacity used to shift strategic amounts of fuel between worlds. Unlike its smaller cousins, the Prometheus features a reasonable defensive arsenal to protect its valuable and volatile cargo.
The Prometheus tanker, like most heavy tankers and freighters, is absolutely unsuited for combat and should disengage whenever it encounters danger. The tanker should be armed with point defense weapons and always accompanied by escorts to deter enemies.
The most significant disadvantage of the Prometheus tanker is its poor maximum burn: any fleet of fast, light ships will be slowed to a crawl after it acquires a Prometheus.
Due to its low maximum burn it is better suited to fleets of slow capitals or freighters, where the burden of keeping up with it would not be as significant. In any case, the Augmented Drive Fieldhullmod is useful to improve the tanker's max burn.
