The Forward Vanguard Shield is a certification available for the New Conglomerate's Vanguard Tank. This certification decreases the amount of damage the Vanguard take, by increasing front and top armor by 67% and side armor by 34% for 8 seconds.
By default Vanguard has 0% armor on all sides, except rear.
"Activate to reduce incoming damage from the front, top and side armor for several seconds."
