A Hull Breach occurs when the outer layer, or hull, of a craft's armor plating is somehow damaged or destroyed, rendering the interior of the ship exposed to vacuum (space), or, if it is a sea-based craft, water.[1] Hull breaches in exoatmopheric craft typically result in violent explosions of the atmosphere within the vessel venting into the vacuum of space, known as "explosive decompression". This can also happen to smaller ships, such as Pelican Dropships, Shortsword Bombers, or Longsword Interceptors. In these smaller cases, "explosive decompression" can be fatal, making the pilot lose control, or be killed himself from vacuum, provided that the craft does not have a sealable cockpit.
