Heavy Duty Armour is an engineer modification that can be applied to Bulkheads. It increases overall hull strength at the cost of increased mass.

It is available in 5 grades, with the highest grade offering up to 30% increase in hull strength.

NOTE: Any mass reduction/increase is not applied to the default stock Lightweight Alloys.
