A type of vehicle armor that reacts to the impact of weapon fire, typically using explosive layering to repel ballistic projectiles. Reactive armor is used as an optional armor configuration in the VF-0S Phoenix variable fighter. When struck by weapons fire the reactive armor explodes toward the projectile reducing the effective penetrating power of the attack. Direct hits upon reactive armor effectively expend the useful protection and thus the armor is typically ejected once damaged.
