Standard battle dress
The ultimate in individual protection, Battle Dress is an advanced and powered version of combat armor. Battle dress is somewhat bulky, but is roughly man-sized. Battle dress enhances the strength and senses of individuals wearing it with variable feedback personal controls, servo-powered limbs, and various kinds of electronic assistance.
Battle Dress is completely sealed, with a Portable Life Support System to supply breathing air, heat, and cooling for at least six hours. The suit is capable of operation in any environment from high-radiation vacuum to 30 atmosphere of pressure, and temperature ranges of -100°C to +100°C. It incorporates a quick sealing system to prevent loss of life support in cases of small punctures. The suit electronics includes a 100km radio communicator, a heads up display integrated into the helmet, and a computer to monitor the health of the wearer. Sensor enhancements includes a full Portable radiation imaging system for passive image enhancements.
A chameleon surface for battle dress, at an additional cost of Cr1000, selectively bleeds heat to match background IR levels and effectively renders the wearer invisible to IR sensors.
Psionic Shield Option
psionic shielding is available as an option at an additional cost of Cr4000. Psionic shielding protects the wearer from psionic mind reading and from psionic life sensing.
