Miniaturization allows to reduce the space taken by weapon systems on board of ships, allowing to fit more weapons and special modules in the hull. There are up to five tiers of miniaturization for each weapon type, each unlocked tier reduces the space and production cost of the concerned weapon systems by 10%.

Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Tier 5
Beams Ion fission (TL4) Hyper dimensional fission (TL 9) Planetoid construction (TL 11)
Bombs Fusion weapons (TL 3) Anti-matter fission (TL 6) Interphased fission (TL 10)
