Polarized Hull Shield (T2) is a device that can be placed in either a Base or a Capital Vessel. It is fueled by both traditional power as well as Pentaxid (refined) placed inside of a Pentaxid Tank. Placing this device will enable activation of shields that will protect the base from all damage. The shield takes 15 seconds to engage upon activation. Upon damage absorption, the shield will decrease in strength. After 8 seconds of not taking damage, the shields will begin to replenish at the cost of some Pentaxid (refined) placed inside of the tank.
Note that Polarized Hull Shield (T1) have similiar function but are different from the Polarized Hull Shield for Small Vessel and Hover Vessel ships. Polarized Hull Shields use a lot of power. Sometimes, it can be a good decision to turn them on only when you engage with enemies.
