Plasma torpedoes, also known among pilots as shieldbuster torpedo or rotten eggs, were a special type of weapon specifically configured to overwhelm a vehicle's shields. They were plasma-based and upon impact they released a burst of radiation that was designed to interfere with shields. They were considerably less effective against armor and other protection.
