An alternative shield generator that sacrifices shield strength for a much faster recharge rate.

— In-game description

The Bi-Weave Shield Generator (BWSG) is an alternative shield generator that sacrifices total shield capacity for faster recharging. Added in 1.5/2.0, the capacity of this type of shields is roughly equivalent to a D-rated shield generator of the same class. However, it recharges itself 2.4x times as fast as a normal shield generator does, although the power draw from the SYS capacitor is multiplied as well.

Notes Edit

  • Since shield boosters do not affect the recharge rate, they can be used to make up for the difference in overall shield strength, provided that the ship has enough power/utility mounts.
  • Bi-weave shields show pink colour when hit, which allows for an easy shield type identification, much like PSG.
  • The only possible rating for bi-weave shields is C.
