I d hate to think that the only advantage of Colossal Military Flux Shields is that when they drop from npcs you sell them for more than 3 mill apiece...
      they use the same power but they don't have the same efficiency... it's in the formula, matey.

      ok thats helpful, where can I have a look at this formula? (sorry if super lazy)

      Edit: Never mind, I ... ahem ... found it...
      That leaves the interesting question: what if I use enough Flux shields to use the shield gen and then use Hard shoelds for the rest? Practice again indicates this doesnt pay off but give us the scientific haxsplaining plix

      In offensive gameplay you are sitting in a M3/ M6/ M7 or higher with Flux shields installed allows you to intervene directly in a combat. Your shields will recharge two times faster than normal shields. If you have a defensive gameplay you can choose the hard or barrier shields. With a surplus of capacity (hard) you can stay longer under fire and probably saving ships etc. or collecting loot. The Flux shields aren't so senseless. If I have enough Mil. Hard shields I would equip my freighters with them too. And the Kha'ak are offensive. So no wondering that they use the Flux shield variant.
      10 ponts for effort though answering a different point
