The class is protected by heavy plating and always seen to be heavily protected. With top of the art defense tactic along with the high-tech armor that the class wears.

The class is a flamethrower who makes use of defense abilities, energy shields and other tanking skills to basically defend allies and bombard the Republic’s army.
