Core overload was a type of technology that was used by the Zann Consortium and the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. The technology involved overloading the core of a machine or a starship, filling the energy core with a large amount of unneeded fuel from the tanks. Following this, the crew would abandon the ship as it would explode. The Empire used this technology in the TIE Mauler; use of this tactic was highly effective against infantry and surrounding unshielded repulsorcraft. The Consortium used this tactic to destroy surrounding enemy units in a suicide mission or if the vessel was near destruction. This technique was highly effective against starfighters, however it had no effect against larger warships.
