Defense Field Frigates do more they they are supposed to

In-game, the description says that the (Taiidan Field Frigates) block Turrets, Mines and Missiles while they are weak against Plasma Bombs and Ion Cannons. Well, the Ion Cannon part is true, but I played a non-modded Player VS CPU as the Taiidan and basically the Attack Bombers failed to blow up my frigate with their bombs…

(That light next to the Frigate is not a star, it’s a bomb hitting the field.)
I think this might be something with 2.0 that changed the field, the Defense Fighters don’t use their lasers like they are supposed to at all.
