Photonic Armor, generally works by generating dense constructs of photonic particles, or hard light. The hard light acts as a solid material blocking incoming attacks. However, attacks place strain on the projection system as they try to maintain and may lead to a crash. Said armor appears as an energy construct.
- Armor: The most famous variant, it appears as armor on or around pieces of armor.
- Photonic Walls: Wall of hard light, often used to block a hallway or entrance.
- Photonic Shields: Large areas, or regions of condensed Hard Light, around a ship, for the purpose of protection.
