+50% defense against conventional missiles for any units up to two squares away.

In the absence of Orbital Defense Pods, the system can shoot down Planet Busters and Tectonic and Fungal Missiles 50% of the time within two-squares of the base.

Both effects are cumulative; i.e., if there are two Flechette Systems within a two-square radius of a missile's target, then a missile has only a 25% chance of success.
