|KDY DSS-02 Shield Generator (4)|
|First appearance: Empire Strikes Back|
|Relations: Kuat Drive Yards|
|A DSS-02 shield generator was produced by Kuat Drive Yards. The Galactic Empire used a generator to protect a supply hub on the Jade Moon. The Rebel Alliance's Rogue Squadron destroyed it to raid the hub. The Empire also used one to protect prisons on Kessel. The Rebels were able to raid the prisons after the generator was disabled. The Weapons Research Facility on Fest was also destroyed by Rogue Squadron after its DSS-2 generator was destroyed. One such generator was used by the Rebel Alliance to protect a portion of the ice-planet Hoth during the Battle of Hoth. This generator was powered by the base's main reactors, which were stolen from a derelict Praetor-class battlecruiser. The shield was strong enough to withstand bombardment from an Executor-class Star Dreadnought and a flotilla of Imperial-class Star Destroyers. It was largely because of this as well as Admiral Ozzel's tactical blunder that the Empire was forced to land on the planet and do a ground battle against the Rebels.
