Hydraulic Control Circuits
This may be applied to all non-fighter starships and vehicles.
See Age of Rebellion
Common on ships used by the Rebel Alliance, hydraulic control circuits are a throwback to an earlier era of shipbuilding. Instead of using traditional conductive material pressed into composite wafer boards to transfer electromagnetic energy, HCCs use countless, nearmicroscopic transparisteel tubes full of highly conductive liquid metal similar in its composition to mercury. Held under pressure and regulated by a series of valves, this metal controls the flow of energy.

Held under pressure and regulated by a series of valves, this metal controls the flow of energy. Bulky, antiquated, and difficult to work with, these circuits do have an incredible resistance to the effects of ion weapons, a fact that has not gone unnoticed among spacers.

- Hydraulic Control Circuits – Price: 1,000 credits, Rarity: 7, Hard Points Required: 2
- Base Modifiers: Ships equipped with these attachments suffer half damage from weapons possessing the Ion quality, after damage is reduced by armour. When installed, decrease handling by one, and decrease system strain threshold by one.
- Modification Options:
- 1 Defender chooses ship component affected by Ion Weapon quality, as opposed to the attacker mod
- 1 increase system strain threshold by one mod
- 2022-03-24 – Updated text and wording of base modifier.
- 2022-01-22 – Added in Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook.

This site is constantly under revision, no blog posts are final as this is a work in progress place for me to develop my game settings and rules. Some posts might be placeholders for future content, so feel free to check back later for updated information.
