Battledress Overview[edit]

Note: This is one of the three common forms of hazardous-duty dress used by the military and paramilitaries of most worlds. These three types of dress are:

  • Environmental Suits (Hazardous Environment Non-Combat Armor) (PROFOR)
  • Combat Armor (Non-powered Combat Armor)
  • Battle Dress (Powered Combat Armor)

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Battle dress is somewhat bulky, but is roughly man-sized.

Chameleon Option[edit]

At Tech Level 12, a chameleon surface becomes available for the combat environment suit, combat armor, or battle dress, at an additional cost of Cr1000. It selectively bleeds heat to match background IR levels and effectively renders the wearer invisible to IR sensors.

Psionic Shield Option[edit]

Beginning at Tech Level 12, psionic shielding is available as an option for any armor at an additional cost of Cr4000. Psionic shielding protects the wearer from psionic mind reading and from psionic life sensing.
