A deflector Shield Generator can be built into a suit of Medium Armor or Heavy Armor, giving it the same kind of protection Starships and some Battle Droids enjoy. Due to their bulk and power requirements, it is not possible to install anything but the smallest of Shield Generators into a suit of Armor; in fact, only Heavy Armor of at least Medium size can carry a SR 10 Shield Generator.
Shield Generators operate for 10 rounds on a standard Energy Cell. (Suits of Armor with Shield Generators commonly have the Internal Generator Upgrade.) Turning a Shield Generator on or off is a Swift Action. When active, reduce the damage you take by the Armor's Shield Rating. If the damage is equal to or greater than the Armor's Shield Rating, the Shield Rating is reduced by 5 points. By spending three Swift Actions on the same or consecutive rounds, the wearer can make a DC 20 Mechanics check to restore lost shield power. If the check succeeds, the Armor's Shield Rating increases by 5 points (Up to it's maximum Shield Rating).
