Description: (Random) An advanced kinetic–resistant hull material that strengthens the entire section of a ship.
Research Category: Industrial Technology
Research Cost: 16,000 (Reflective Coating) or 10,000 (Orbital Foundries) or 15,000 (Asteroid Mining) or 8,000 (Tarkasian Living Steel) Research Points
Required Technology: Reflective Coating OR Orbital Foundries OR Asteroid Mining OR Tarkasian Living Steel
Races Allowed: Hiver, Human, Liir, Morrigi, Tarka, Zuul
Effect: Designed to reduce the impact of solid objects.
Increases cost of a ship section it is added to by +20%.
Adds a chance (+80%) that a ballistic weapon will ricochet off the armor, possibly pushing the ship off course but otherwise causing no damage.
Also adds an additional +15% to the hit points of the ship sections it is installed on, due to additional hull reinforcement to mount the armor plating.
Notes: This tech can be salvaged both from a planet and from a ship.
