The Aeon T3 Shield Disruptor, nicknamed the Absolver, is an Aeon unit. This is a direct fire unit as well as a support unit.

The Absolver is a T3 shield disruptor unit. Its weapon is highly effective against enemy shields, and is extremely ineffective against everything else. It has good range, granting the opportunity to use it as a second line support unit combined with Harbingers. This unit is especially useful against Titans and T2 base defense protected by shields. Furthermore, it can be used defensively behind base defenses to neutralize incoming mobile shield generators. Rather bizarrely, the Absolver takes up the same amount of space on an air transport as a T1 unit.

If you feel up to thinking outside the box, you can use the Absolver to target T3 sniper units- The Absolver  can use the light armor of sniper units and its (The Absolver's) long range to its advantage: The Absolver has roughly the same firepower as a T1 Aurora.

Another unorthodox use of the Absolver is as a counter to UEF T2 Shield Boats.  Since the Absolver can outrange even most naval units, and can hover, a small group of 4-6 Absolvers (along with other typical Aeon hovering land forces, including T2 Mobile Shields and Blaze tanks) can completely negate UEF T2 Shield Boats, and thus compete with even a sizable UEF Navy, provided the enemy doesn't have T3 Battleships or T3 Battlecruisers in their armada.

This unit was introduced with the 3269 patch, released on October 04, 2007.
