These ancient craftsmen produce stalwart-looking ships which are heavily armed and even more heavily armored. Even Dwarven space tugs are armed. The Dwarves dislike having to make repairs on their ships, so they build them to be unbelievably sturdy and reliable. Dwarven hulls are notoriously thick and strong while also being about as light as the hulls on a regular ship. Their shields are a bit of a mystery, for while the generators are nearly identical to standard shield generators, they can absorb 50% more damage. Dwarven ships are slightly sub-par for maneuverability, but they make up for it in endurance and firepower. The Dwarves often boast that any one of their ships will deal out twice as much damage as it takes. Dwarves prefer projectile-based weapons and have even created a working replica of a goblin space mortar, which they use quite effectively.
