I know the use of Croby Sharmor, but how is Fielded Kelarium useful? I thought it might be of use on DDs, but it appears that its shield power is too low to really justify it. Anyone got some ideas?

Also, does its shield get increased by RS?

Hi!

Marginaly IMO Sad :
- con-10 transfer by scrappers,
- small boost to shields for early missile BBs.

Yes.

I think most armors in Stars! are too heavy to be used on all warship but missile ones (here the big iron investment is worth some additional protection), and too expensive to be used en-mass anywhere else but on orbital stations. Even there they lose the efficiency with the increase in weapon's tech (late game orbital is in combat most of the time just an expensive chaff-shredder).

Fielded Kelarium would be a lot more useful if it was Fielded Crobnium or such, so it would be availavle for early destroyers. Putting it a level after cruisers is what makes it useless, more than anything else.
