Introduction

The rare Mk5 engines are available in Supercharged, Equalized or Sidewinder configurations, just like the regular engines (Mks 1-4). They are built from 10 Rare Engine parts that may drop as loot from destroyed fighters. A mission is not associated with this dropped part.

The 10 parts are crafted into a "Rare Engine" and the crafting may be done repeatedly. Since parts drop randomly and the precise part that may drop varies too, it can take a while to gain a complete set. By which point, you may be close to owning multiple sets.

A crafted Rare Engine can be used in several ways:

  • Installed as a Mk5 engine on the Skunk.
  • Used as a necessary component of Jumpdrive manufacture.
  • Sold for credits.

    Silly question but how do you install the rare engine, once you have one available.

    Just check your mission board, you will be given a mission for the rare engine, where you will need to access certain mechanic which will provide you a Mk5 engine to install.

    Probably a stupid question but... Does that still count when on free-play mode?

    Is there a specific 'Zone' or 'Sector' involved or a special rank needed?

    ...Or is it just random?

    Yes... It still counts.

    It's doubtful that rank has any effect. 

    Could be Random. Don't know if there is a specific Zone or Sector but I found the mission (little skull) on the side of AES Cell Fab Matrix in Cuspid Splint.

    ~Totally by chance though. (I had already crafted an engine so the mission only took a few moments.)

    It didn't give me the choice of engines!! (sad)

    I wanted a sidewinder engine but all they offered was the supercharged engine!

    Can I repeat the mission at all?

    1. Mission is repeatable, look for mission offer on stations surface.
      Mission mechanic offers all mk5 engines.
