Description (Specifications)[edit]

This heated dry suit utilizes heating coils built into the suit proper to heat the diver in extremely cold temperatures. (If it's warm enough not to be frozen, it's warm enough to swim in wearing a heated dry suit.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Disadvantages of the suit include the extreme infrared signature, which makes detection of a diver extremely easy, and the possibility of a short circuit if the suit is damaged. Batteries, worn in a belt pouch, provide six hours of operation before recharge or replacement becomes necessary.

Available at TL–8, the suit is of negligible weight.

An improved model, available at TL–10, does not short circuit when penetrated, and the batteries last 12 hours.
