The Covenant Shield Problem

<< < (7/7)

Felix 039:
Or, have multiple (number depends of size and type of ship) shields , each covering different area, some weaker, some stronger.
Weak shield located in regions where capital ships are unlikely to able to fire at (or at least accurately at) while being easy for fighter to fly in with point defence lazer emplacements defending it. Like under some sort of canopy.

A nice idea for some sci-fi fanchises, but as far as I remember the Halo books, the shields of covernant ships either worked on the whole ship or failed completely all around the ship. I don't remember there being any gaps in the covernant shielding, except for the ones they intentionally open up themselfs, so their own weapons can shoot out of them.
