Iridium I, II, III, IV, and V Respectively

General

Iridium is moderately strong armor used by low and mid level players. Often equipped on Exodus cruisers and Venom battleships. They are more efficient and stronger than Tritanium. Players who unlock this armor should consider refitting their favorite fleets with this type of armor if they wish to go repair efficient and not full armor.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages:

Iridium in considered the most repair efficient researchable armor in the game. It provides a rather decent added armor while still keeping the hull its equipped on have a rather low repair time.

Along with this They can be equipped on all ships infinitely. The one of the few disadvantages about Talonite Armor was that it was Xeno Division Hulls only which limited its use. Civil war armors were limited in use which severely imited their use.

Disadvantages:

They are inferior to special armor types such as ones with built in resistance. Iridium armor used to be popular before the repair times were overhauled, they featured far less repair time and satisfactory protection.

Iridium is also easily outclassed by newer armors like the Skirmish Armor, Talonite Armor, or the Civil war armors. These armors give higher armor and are much better in PvP and PvE.

Trivia

  • It used to be called Iridium composite along with the base version, but was changed simply to Iridium.
  • The same materials that make up this armor is used for magnets as a weapon booster in base turrets and ship weapons.
  • Iridium is a real metal, favored for its high density, corrosion resistance, and high melting point. It is one of the two elements of the alloy of the International Prototype Metre bars, which were used until 1960. It is also one of the rarest stable metals and elements on the Earth's crust.
    • In this game, however, Iridium is referred as an iridium-based alloy, just like how Tritanium is a Titanium alloy.
