Just noticed that the shield generator is placed in the Rough terrain hex. Does it mean that it gives a permanent -1 dice penalty when fired upon?
Probably yes, .... what a nice surprise for a light side player after years of losing

I've always played it is, but I've never seen anything "official" to indicate one way or another.

The shield Generator has a star marker on the game map, which means it has the improved cover in Rough Terrain (like troops and towers). I overlooked that one completely.

You are correct. Here's what the rulebook says...

Destroying the Shield Generator
The Shield Generator is destroyed in the same way as a unit. It has an armor strength of 3, and if hit, it is destroyed. (Note that it is in rough terrain, and it does benefit from being there.)

Still lef tus wondering if it is armor of 3 with the terrain or armor of 3 on it's own, benefiting from the terrain to make it a 4?
