It's seems the Death Machines seem to be using the same weapon damage vectors based on ship type.

The minelayers use mine damage vectors

The light cruisers use sonic damage vectors

And the Heavy Cruisers use cold.

And I just noticed the 2700 fusion bombs and 30 colony beacons the light cruisers were carrying in their cargo bays.....

I am only aware of three DMX designs - ML EX4M minelayer, CL K4S light cruiser, and CA HK7B heavy cruiser. Only the heavy cruiser has shields. If anyone else has encountered different DMX ships and are willing to share, please post them here.

I think you meant system beacons not colony. The DMX don't use pop groups like the biological races do. They use a completely different system of production that doesn't require pop groups. This is a bit of a disappointment as we were looking forward to facing them in ground combat and ripping off their limbs with our bare hands. :)

Yep, I've encountered 6 death machine factions and one player. What are the rest of you doing?

 

I lost a pathfinder to the new faction this turn, but I pushed into known DMX territory and destroyed a minelayer.

Just had a System Beacon destroyed in Zhupan but no indication of who or what was responsible. I am assuming this is down to the Death Machines in which case they seem to have become more aggressive than I had thought.
