The Hiigaran Defense Field Frigate is a special role ship that’s primary function serves to field a temporary shield which it can deploy for short periods of time that protects nearby vessels. This shield is capable of protecting against mass driver projectiles incredibly well, while also reducing the damage cause by Ion weaponry to ships under the protective bubble. When this shield is deployed, 4 “arms” extend from the aft of the vessel which retract again when the shield turns off. There is a recharge time required before deploying the shield again, and the Defense Field Frigate mounts a single turret on the bottom aft of the ship for light strike-craft defense.
