It appears i can't put shields on fighters. Whenever I do that in design, later in fighter factory ship doesn't utilize shields.
Is it some kind of code bug?

No, the fighters don't utilize shields (or thrusters) you build while designing, as they stripped of these during the fighter production. The reason is simply that the devs thought the fighters would be overpowered if they used shields.

I know this is an old topic, but I just read this in the patch notes for December 3rd:

Quote from: koonschi
Fixed shielded fighters sometimes starting with empty shields

So does this mean fighters can now have shields? :o

I sometimes see fighters shielded, others aren't. All from the same squad made with a similar blueprint, basically clones. 17 hp fighters, sometimes having 2-3 hp shields.
