Senor: GG eagles!

Love it! But yeah the mp cost has to be quite high. It will stop all c1 based fleets except kamikazes.

Put some of these together with a spectre and you have something really scary against c1.
spacetrace: i guess 100mp would be ok, but maybe some more balance would be needed
Senor: maybe give it a shuffle effect?
spacetrace: how about gives 3 own ships also 0/-1 if hit... it's like the shots ricochet off the armor (the reactive explosive armor hit 3 own ships :) )

so if hit ten times it kills 3 own class 2
spacetrace: i tested a bit around and it would behave smt. like this:

"armored corvette has a strong armor that cannot be penetrated by small guns, but it will damage 2 own ships due its explosive armor"

Senor: That's great. Its an effective and easily understandable drawback.
spacetrace: i think it is fun and well balanced against standart ships (not so good against fighters & destroyers)
