The Aliens have manufactured an energy shield that can protect an entire vehicle. It is far more effective than any armor system and can turn a small vehicle into a deadly weapons platform. The disruption field it generates can absorb any kind of beam or projectile, but it loses power for each hit. Power levels are gradually restored but the unit will cease functioning if the power level is reduced to zero.  From: Apocalypse Ufopaedia

The Small Disruption Shield provides hull protection against any offensive weaponry. Shield strength is denoted by a blue health bar which will deplete as the shield uses its disruption field energy to protect the craft until the device has expired, which it harmlessly self destructs and disappears. Shielding strength will recharge slowly if the module is not destroyed, or when a new module is inserted into the craft's inventory space. Vehicle shields are combined into a one protection 'quantity'. One small shield provides 200points of extra constitution. If more small shields are used on the same craft, the shield effect is added +200points for each module.
If the combined total of shield points is reduced to zero, all small shield modules will harmlessly self destruct.
To optimise space for the best shielding power, small shields may be mixed with Large Shields.
