Reduce the damage dealt to you from chosen direction by 40 percent.  Greatly reduces damage taken from chosen direction for a short duration. 

When this shielding technique was first introduced, it was sold with a slogan, which claimed it was "excellent in dogfights against single opponents." Today, this bullet point comes accompanied by an asterisk, as there are many hulls that are capable of singlehandedly forming a pincer attack.


This ability first applies a large damage reduction bonus, then creates the persistent 40% damage reduction in the form of a green shield.
