Soti2 Disruptor Shields icon
Creates an electro-magnetic field around the front of a ship that breaks up and dissipates any energy weapon that impacts it.

This defence only protects from the front and only protects the front and mid-section of cruiser ships (as long as the shot comes from the front 170 arc) and only the front section of destroyer class ships. And only energy weapons.

This is the other half to deflector shields.
