XXAL Heavy Talonite Armor is useful in most situations where you would use XX Heavy Talonite Armor of the same type. Its Alien resistance enables your ships to be optimized against most Alien Event Targets which almost always deal Alien Damage to some extent.
It is much more repair-efficient than XX Heavy Talonite Armor and therefore widely used amongst Tier 6 ships.
XXAL Heavy Talonite Armor is less mass- and XP-efficient than XX Heavy Talonite Armor without utilizing its Alien damage resistance. Ship weapons that are of A.X.I.S. level or higher are least efficient in their Xeno version (except for cruiser-restricted weapons), which deal Alien damage, causing such weapons to be rarely used. Therefore, this armor may not be as useful in PvP.
The "AL" in XXAL Heavy Talonite Armor stands for Alien
