In YC 113 Empress Jamyl Sarum I challenged Amarr
ship manufacturers to build a new battlecruiser that would break the stalemate of the Empyrean War. Deviating from the doctrine of brute-force and heavy armor, the engineers at Viziam
took inspiration from Caldari
During the Gallente-Caldari War, the Caldari developed light, maneuverable ships to counter the slow ships of the Gallente Federation
. This philosophy, along with a cutting-edge powertrain and ultra-light alloy armor plating, led to the Oracle.
The Empire immediately ordered the ship into production. The Empress personally congratulated Viziam Chief Researcher Parud Vakirokiki
, calling the ship "a work of Divine Grace for the Empire, and retribution to our enemies."
