The Ablative Hull Armor is an Engineering Console that improves resistance against phaser, disruptor, plasma, and tetryon damage.
Armor provides more resistance than alloys, with the exception of Monotanium Alloy, but against only specific energy damage types. It has lower resistance than plating, but resists against four damage types instead of just two. It becomes available at mark III.
- Although the weapons Plasma Torpedo Launcher and Plasma Mine Launcher contain the title Plasma, their main damage type is Kinetic. For increasing damage resistance to plasma torpedoes and mines, players should use one of the Alloy consoles that boost damage resistance to Kinetic-based weapons, eg. [Console - Engineering - Monotanium Alloy].
- This console will not grant any damage resistance to any torpedo or mine hits, however it will grant some resistance to the Plasma fire damage proc.
