Flechette Defense System is a base facility in Alien Crossfire.

Effect[ | ]

+50% defense against conventional missiles for any units up to two squares away
Also, if you have no Orbital Defense Pods, the system can shoot down a non-conventional missile (Planet Busters, Tectonic Missiles, and Fungal Missiles) 50% of the time when used inside a two-square radius of the base
Both effects are cumulative; ie, 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
