Imperial Assault Corps Armor

Heavy Armor

• Head: Duraplast Helmet
• Torso: Duraplast Chest Piece
• Back: Sectioned Duraplast (Upper & Mid Back)
• Upper Arms: Sectioned Duraplast (Shoulders & Biceps)
• Lower Arms: Sectioned Duraplast (Forearms & Tops of Hands)
• Upper Legs: Sectioned Duraplast (Groin, Thighs & Knees)
• Lower Legs: Sectioned Duraplast (Shins & Feet)

Function 1: Inertial Dampeners
  • Intergrated Inertial dampeners help reduce impacts imparted wearers body, situated under the armour panels, they help the absorb the shock of weapon impact through the armour and most other forms of blunt force trauma, for example, a fall or impact that might have fractured bones would only give them intense bruising.
Function 2: Armorweave Accessory
  • Most often in the form of a cape or underlay beneath armor, modern armorweave provides protection against the penetrating effects of shrapnel from explosives, basic slugthrowers, and unpowered melee weapons using a tightly woven lattice of the material. It offers no protection against kinetic impact, energy, vibroweapons, or powered weapons.

Function 3: Jet Pack
  • Jet Packs are back mounted units used by elite troops increase their mobility on the battlefield. The jet pack's maximum speed is 50 kph and it carries fuel for up to five minutes of continuous flight (flight mode), but can also be fired in short bursts triggered by jumping (combat mode). The wearer can control the system to switch between modes and/or disengage it from their armor via wrist controls. These packs are cumbersome, adding an additional 8kg for the average human (larger individuals will have heavier jet packs to support their weight). While the fuel is stable enough not to explode, direct hits from weapons can trigger the system inadvertently, after which it is rendered useless.
Function 4: Pneumatic Fist
  • An impact-fired jackhammer strapped to a user's forearm, the pneumatic fist is a deadly melee weapon. It has the force to knock an unarmored enemy off their feet, and even through armor the impact of the weapon can cause massive internal damage, and a hard swing can even take out small or weak doors. Impact mitigating technology protects the user from the weapon's kick. While you can hold weapons with the the same arm the Pneumatic Fist is on, this fist weapon can't be activated while doing so.
Function 5: Concealed Blade (Left Boot)
  • Concealed blades are typically 4-6 inches in length and lock into place once extended. They are almost always placed along the fore-arm or boot. They are no substitute for true combat knives as the locking mechanism can break under strong impacts. Still, some people enjoy them as a helpful backup.

This armor is the standard issue piece of equipment given to the Imperial Assault Corps. Responsible for special operations and shock-and-awe operations, their armor is designed in such a way as to be lightweight while still providing critical protection. Its functionality is geared toward their quick movement approach and is higher end than the more mass-produced armor used by the Imperial Defense Force.

The plates are made of thin duraplast layered over an environmental suit that allows combatants to fight in a variety of situations. It can be painted to provide camouflage in a variety of environments. It comes standard with a belt and numerous pouches for storage of important equipment as well as a comlink built into the helmet.

This armor is property of the Imperial Military. Usage by those who are not members of the Imperial Military is illegal and will be punished accordingly.

This is to flesh out the armor used by one of the branches of the Imperial Army. It is designed to provide a base set of armor for those wishing to serve within that branch.

Restricted for use only by Otto von Bastion.
