Here's a look at a couple of equipment cards that Deacon and Hudson have been working on. The Warp Shield is their latest addition, and the Coolant Units have been recently revised. In addition to the temporarily invulnerability that the shield provides in Privateer 2, it will give a slight all-around shield boost in the fan card game. I assume Nuke'ems are somewhere in the pipeline.
Warp shields provide invulnerability to all known types of weaponry for 10 seconds. They are extremely expensive, and they only work once. They are not currently available through the CCN, but prototypes are in the last stages of testing and they are expected to hit the market very soon.
