Name: Protector Shield
Type: Passive Hull module
Upgrades: Mk1: 6,000pts. Mk4: 9,000pts.
Tooltip: Separate shield generators are placed around the hull of the ship. These project a shield with 6,000-9,000pts of durability around the ship. She ship cannot be damaged before the shield goes down. The shield will slowly regenerate after 45 seconds of not being hit.
So essentially a temporary turtle shield that has a recharge.
The turtle shields are bypassed by splash weapons. Is this the case here too?
Turtle shields are bypassed only by wide-splash weapons. Most smaller explosions will not hit them. It would probably be the case here as well, but then again, it is a very small anount of shielding and takes a long while to regenerate as opposed to the permanent turtle shells, so let’s say no.
