Tungsten Armor is the original of many variants following its name. It is an incredibly light weight AXIS exclusive armor. Even with its light weight it follows the Talonite Armor's 1 second = 2 hitpoints rule, along with that, it still has decent armor.
Strategy and Setup
Tungsten Armor is an incredibly light weight and compact armor. For obvious reasons this will mainly be compared to Talonite Armor as this is the original of its variants. It has much more armor compared to Talonite III with only a little bit more repair and mass.
When compared to EXAl/PRAL/ENAL armor it loses alot of value but still due to its low mass equipping 2 Tungsten II for less mass than EX/PR/ENAL armor gives almost the same value as 1 of those.
However, when compared to 1 Dual Resistance Talonite Armor, it gives roughly the same armor and less mass but DOUBLE the repair time. Keep in mind that this is still the normal variant aswell, overall it is not worth it.
Also, it is still not a very strong armor, it is easily replaced later on by its dual resistance variants as they have similar repair for much more value.
Though, if you do not worry about its long repair time or have unmarked up hulls, the Tungsten armor is a pretty decent armor to equip onto the hull if you want to save mass.
Try to maximum your armor capacity and as of now never equip the Harmonic Exophase Shield as it gives MASSIVE repair making it only worth it for coiners.
