For every Unit on the battlefield, the value of a support vehicle increases rapidly. This is especially cased with the only real support vehicle within Confederate army, Energy Shield. The only purpose of this vehicle is to have an active shield during the battle. Several conditions need to be fulfilled in order for Energy Shield to be as effective as possible. One is, it needs to have enough energy to the shield last for an entire combat. The second is, it needs to be at full health otherwise it will be taken out from side-effects. And lastly, it must be positioned in such way it is not disturbing the movement of other units, especially those slow-moving ones. It is a good idea to have two of those when the battle starts, so one can be backup for other.
The Upgrade priority for Energy Shield is as follows:
- Matrix-Field generator
- Power Plant
- Plasma Invertor
- Ceramic Vehicle Armor
- Repair System
- Special Armor Hull
Class: Special Vehicle
Produced in: Special Vehicle Factory LVL 3
The Energy Shield combat support vehicle creates an energy field that enhances the armor of the nearby allied units. The field generator consumes much energy, so the protective field can only be maintained for a short time. After that, the Shield needs time to recharge.
