Damage Dispersion is a valuable technology which provides Armour modules for ships once unlocked. Armour modules provide less protection than Shields, and any hull damage sustained must be repaired after a fight. However, they will help protect against all incoming damage, including damage from minefields and Orbit Defense Systems, whereas Shields can be bypassed by ordnance-based attacks.
At 150 Difficulty, it will take time for new players to unlock this technology, and they will need warships in the meantime for attack and defence. New players should not wait to unlock this Tech before building combat ships – they can be refitted later, along with any other new upgrades the player has access to, such as Improved Warp Engines and higher-Tier Small Weapons.
