Ships are your main way of travel and combat in the Tyrian universe, but this goes without saying. Each ship has it's own armor strength, indicated by the brown gauge on the bottom right of the screen during gameplay. Unlike other Shoot 'em Up games, your armour is complemented by Shields which constantly replenish themselves as long as you have enough generator power. The ship's armoring will only suffer direct damage after the shield power is fully depleted, only being restored if you pick up a metal brought by one of the support ships.
