Vanilla game HUD
1 - strength of fore/aft shields
12 - four energy banks (which power shield generators)

The Cobra comes with twin Zieman deflector shields. These shields absorb energy by reflecting it with an equivalent charge of inverse energy. There are two generators for these shields, one forward and one aft. The green indicators showing the strength of the shields are labelled "1" on the HUD on the right. The four yellow energy banks which together power the generators are labelled "12".

There are two considerations regarding the functioning of your shields - firstly, how strong they are, and secondly, how quickly they recharge. The Shield Boosters and Military Shield Enhancement further strengthen your shields. The Extra Energy Unit quickens the recharge rate instead.

Two standard upgrades can be purchased for your Shields:

The recharge rate is improved by the following equipment:

OXPs


There are two OXPs which provide extra physical shielding for your ship:


The following OXPs all make the game harder (and more realistic).
