That's one thing that I'm not too sure on though. I don't really recall the
use too many uses of I-fields vs Beam weapons after CCA, so I'm not sure if
I-field never went down due to the fact that it CAN'T be taken down or if
nothing powerful enough went against an I-Field equiped MS like a Zanneck
Cannon or something similar.
