The Hiigaran Mobile Refinery is the mobile docking point pair to the Resource Collector. This frigate sized vessel is meant to allow you to quickly expand resourcing operations to more distant pockets of RUs. In addition to 2 docking points fro resource drops, the Hiigaran Mobile Refinery comes with a set of 8 defensive turrets placed about the hull, allowing it limited capacity to ward of harassers that may try to target your collectors. This is essentially an upgraded version of Homeworld 1’s Resource Controllers.
