Loki Class Destroyer
The Loki Class Destroyer is a fairly high-tec light ship with the ability to decloak most cloaking ships within the range of 10 lightyears. It usually does not fight for itself, but with 80kt of cargo space it is a reasonable minelayer.
A way to avoid this is to let more than just one Loki Class accompany the fleet, and randomly refuel or tow them, so that they will not be attacked if a cloaked intercept occurs.
The Loki requires at least 1 kt of fuel to decloak ships. It will also decloak any of your own ships, as well as your ally's ships (unless those players have loki immunity).

Back in VGA Planets 3, the Loki's tachyon decloak was one of the few hull functions that did not work for shareware players back in VGA 3. This does not hold true for Planets Nu.
The Loki Class Destroyer does not currently have any addon-exclusive abilities.
