The general term referring to the shield shaped like a heating iron. The shield in most coats of arms is a heater shield. For example in the Midrealm arms pictured below.

The Midrealm Arms

This is the most popular type of shield in the Middle Kingdom, probably because it suits the 13th - 15th century armor in most popular use, and because it best suits the general idea that people have of what a medieval man-at-arms uses for a shield.
