Tungsten Armor is an incredible ship armor that boasts superior mass efficiency. It can only be used on A.X.I.S. Hulls.
Strategy and Setup
Compared to Talonite Armor and Heavy Talonite Armor, Tungsten Armor only offers mediocre protection but weighs much less. With this armor, your ships can be tanky and damaging at the same time.
Tungsten Armor is only useful when put on ships with many armor slots such as the Guardian Cruiser. Enforcer Battleships are not suitable because they only have one armor slot, severely limiting their maximum health.
While Tungsten Armor has lower health value, it gives noticeably more XP than Talonite Armor and its Heavy variant, endangering your fleet from high-level combat.
Tungsten is a real-life metal. It is a hard, rare metal (under standard conditions, when uncombined), and is found naturally on Earth almost exclusively in chemical compounds. It was identified as a new element in 1781 and first isolated as a metal in 1783.
