General

The Spectral, Shockwave and Deflector Armor are similar to Zynthium but have the added ability to reduce incoming Energy, Explosive and Kinetic damage respectively.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Civil War Armor is slightly more efficient than Zynthium against the respective damage type. Refer to here about when to use each variant.

Reading this is also recommended for a better understanding of how resistance is calculated from multiple pieces of resistance armor.

Disadvantages

Considering equal damage taken from Energy, Explosive and Kinetic sources, Civil War Armor is actually less mass efficient than Zynthium. It only works if you specialize your ships to only fight against certain types of targets.

To add insult to injury, the XP per health is also greater, setting your fleet up to be attacked by stronger ships.
