The EXAL Heavy Talonite Armor is an advanced variant of the Talonite Armor developed by the Xeno Division, designed to effectively absorb alien and explosive damage. It was first made available in the sixth Alien Mobilization.
Strategy and Setup
With Inherent resistances to Explosive and Alien Damage, in addition to high amounts of armor, the EXAL Heavy Talonite Armor allows the ship equipped with it to effectively shrug off shots that would destroy most vessels, especially those from the Xeno Disintegrator Cannon or Xeno Cluster Missile.
As the when marked up Punisher Cruiser has reductions to armor mass, it is a perfect pairing for the EXAL, and the Alien Resistance can reach a maximum of ~70%, which, combined with the Punisher's ability to tank, greatly nullifies the high damage output of the Xeno Disintegrator Cannon or any Alien weapon. The Explosive Resistance also helps to reduce the damage taken in PvP, especially from weapons like the Manifold Missile or the Vector Torpedo.
It is also a blueprint which means you can infinitely equip them to a hull without running out, unlike the EX Heavy Talonite Armor.
The EXAL, is Xeno Division Hulls only and is incredibly hard to get as a mid-high level player as the Alien Fleets are very hard on higher levels and still do massive damage on lower level fleets with the wrong setup or strategy.
It is also very heavy which makes a Mk I Xeno Division Hull have a hard time equipping it. Usually players who would like to max out on the armor will usually sacrifice important weapon or shield stats which could be better in some cases.
