Field inverter

Novus Field Inverter


The Field Inverter is a slow, powerful assault vehicle with a rail gun that attacks ground and air. It is strong against infantry, heroes, and especially vehicles, but weak against Walker hardpoints. It is also able to generate a shield protecting friendly units and structures from attack. The Inverter suffers a small portion of the damage that strikes the shield. While in shield mode, the Inverter's movement speed and sight range are reduced.
