The primary defense of any heavy-sized member of the ORA HEAVY INDUSTRY fleet is patented ablative armor plating. The exact materials and manufacturing process is unknown to the public. Details that are known are it is a modular system and could cover 100% of the vessel.
ORA HEAVY INDUSTRY was initially slow to adopt point-laser technology (which obliterates any oncoming debris to the craft). Preferring reactive armor over the expensive and unreliable point-laser systems. After acquiring VYN Subsystems, it is expected the ORA HEAVY INDUSTRY fleet will retro fit all light craft and most heavy craft accordingly.
