Abh mod/Defense Orb
The Defense Orb was introduced in 0.4.8
The defense orb is like any defense weapon only more advanced. It defends the ship from missiles and can create and shoot energy arcs at nearby enemies. The arcs will partially disrupt energy systems. As the orb is an energy ball held together by a spherical force field, the field itself can serve as limited defense. As the energetic orb emanates radio frequency (RF) energy it has limited ECM effects.
The orb is best used with the greatest range and arc when the part is build near the outer hull.
