Capacitive Plates use highly charged capacitors to neutralize incoming damage to modules. They're extremely effective for their mass.

Capacitive Plates I, II, and III, Respectively


Capacitive Plates are a VEGA Corporation technology, but never seen. They can be obtained by defeating level 20-27 rebel cargo fleets or level 30-45 VEGA cargo fleets. It is the strongest base armor in the game and requires Ship lab X to use. They are efficient for their mass. They work well on modules that can't contain Zynthium alloy II and above because of the mass efficiency and high armor.

Strategy and Setup


It's strongly recommended you put Capacitive plates III on your lower level Combat Modules if you can while staying at decent DPS. Capacitive plates are best used on modules that are next to modules with high collateral damage but can't equip Heavy Talonite Plates, like other combat modules. The Bridge contains the highest potential collateral damage in the game, and will critically damage any module one space away regardless their armor.

On lower levels they also offer a lot of armor for very low mass making it very good on Miner Modules or Commerce Modules.


However, Zynthium plates sometimes works better than Capacitive plates as their total mass is lower. Regardless, fit the highest health armor, not the heaviest one. This means Zynthium Plates IV would go better than Capacitive Plates II if you can only equip these.

Higher level bases would benefit much more from Talonite Plates or Heavy Talonite Plates which give much more armor.

They also are a blueprint and will take alot of grinding to get as the drop is rather low if you don't hit the highest level, regardless you will still need to grind alot as many times you will not get a blueprint on a kill.
