Deflector shield generators were produced in a variety of sizes, ranging from small personal projectors to large units used on capital ships. In some cases, the generator could project the shield a great distance and without need for line of sight, by using a focusing dish. Variants included planetary shield generators, such as the SLD-26 planetary shield generator used to protect the second Death Star in orbit over the moon of Endor, and the DSS-02 shield generator used to protect Echo Base during the Battle of Hoth. The Gungans used handheld shield generators along with shield generators on the back of their fambaas. The Imperial Army used a force shield projector to protect their base on Borleias around 7 ABY.
