Enlightened Dynamics is a terran arms manufacturer. It developed a microfabricator for the vulture, ripwave missiles for the Viking, the G-4 cluster bomb and a new titanium housing for missile turrets, allowing such devices to suffer more punishment before failing.[1]

Known ProductsEdit

Titanium Housing

Missile turrets gain +75 hit points.

Enlightened Dynamics has developed a new titanium housing for the missile turret. Early adopters have found this housing to be noticeably tougher than the original, allowing missile turrets to absorb more punishment before falling.[1]

Reapers can hurl G-4 cluster bombs. G-4 cluster bombs deal 155 splash damage to all units and structures in a radius of 3.

This anti-personnel charge detonates shortly after being thrown. The initial blast ejects a cluster of smaller charges that deal additional damage in a large radius.

Please note that Enlightened Dynamics assumes no liability for deaths due to friendly fire.

Vultures can replenish their spider mine. Mines cost 15 minerals each and build one at a time. The ability can be set to autocast.

Enlightened Dynamics have developed a microfabricactor that lets vultures create new mines out in the field. This microfabricator uses a small number of mineral crystals each time a mine is created, but this minor hassle is a welcome change from the old system of "three and done."

Vikings deal splash damage when attacking air units.

Ripwave Missiles are anti-matter warheads that can damage multiple air targets with deadly bursts of sub-atomic shrapne. The long-term environmental impact is still being assessed, but Enlightened Dynamics would like to remind its valued clients that it offers a whole suite of environmental decontamination services.[1]
