Sorry to be posting too much, but the Vulture is awesome. It's a Viper on CRACK. Same power issues though, so beware. I'm still trying to work out a scheme where I can kill warrant scan.
And, from what I've found out... the new shield boosters are meant for trading ships that have lowered their main shield class for extra cargo space. They are different from shield cells...they add an extra percentage to your shield strength. Flat out. Nothing you need to mess with once it's installed.
I tried putting one on my Vulture, and the power requirement went so far above my class A power plant I laughed out loud. So...if you're in a fighter, you probably can't use them. A multi-role ship, however, probably can. It's nice if you buy a part that doesn't work, you can trade it back with no money loss.
