  • Reflec Personal Armor: Reflec armor is extremely effective against laser weapons, but virtually useless against most other types of attacks. This armor is constructed of a reflective material on a plastic base. It is worn underneath clothing. This armor is rare, difficult to purchase, and very expensive. [3]
  • The armor provides Class-10 protection against Energy Weapons. [4]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Energy weapons grow increasingly advanced during the TL:10-12 epoch culminating in the PGMPs and FGMPs of the future. Reflec does a more effective job of defending against energy weapons than the earlier TL-9 Ablat Personal Armor. The armor continues to develop after TL-10, increasing in effectiveness and decreasing in weight. [5]
