Akira Wolf-7 Body Armour
The Wolf-7 has become known as one of the best and by far, msot expensive, peices
of armour ever made. The suit is made form a combination of various plastoids and
a polymer known as reflex, used in old storm commando armour. Reflex bends light
and sensors away from it toa degree so that passive searches can easily miss the
wearer's rpesence. however it does not bend it storngly enough to thwart any active
search. Reflex also amkes the armour very sound absorbant draining away the noise form
the suit's sevro-motors and even the wearer's mvoements to an extent making them actualy
more stealthy. The armour is of coruse all black, and the headpeice is compeltely smooth
except for the short stalks of vairous optical lneses sticking out of the front where the
face should be. these lenses all upll inv arious opticla datat and transmit it to the
new TALAS micro-computer system built into the suit. Thie suit takes the datat from the
various optical lenses as well as 360 degree scanning from a motion sensor, electro-magnetic
sensor, and lfie sign detector. It projects a compsoite image on the inside of the faceplate
and provides a Heads-up-Display of the 360 degree sensor info. The TALAS also keeps track of
the vital signs showing them in the HUD so that the wearer constantly knows all his vitals,
such as pulse,bloodpressure,body temeprature, and so on. This puts the wearer at a much higher
level of awareness of himselff and his surroundings. While the wearer's vitals are being monitored
an automatic medpac system lays in wait should the wearer be seriously injured or manulay trigger
the system. The only other seriosu change from the -6 to the -7 is the improvement of the subspace
radio allowing for an addition 200 kiolemetrs rnage, a staggering increase. The TALAS can also use
a dedicated secitoned off module of the subspace radio to continualy send a copy of it's data to a
command center. This allows for commanders in a miltiary op to see what their men see. Very few
miltiary organizations can afford to buy enoguh Wolf-7s to equip even a whole paltoon, but there
are a few who do and have. The suit is msot ntabley sued, however, by the bounty hunter Jade Wolf
for whom it is thoguh the armour is named. When quesitoned about the amrour, Jade Wolf's only
complaint was the lack of built in weapons.

Max Dex Bonus: +4
Armor Check Penalty: 0
Speed: 11 (10 m), 7 (6 m)
Weight: 15 kg
Motion Sensor: +3 Search against moving targets under 50m.
Microwave Imaging: May be used to see through walls (Search vs. cover strength) if there is thermal variations on the other side.
Passive Light Enhancement: Subtracts 6 from all darkness penalties in effect. cannot reduce the penalties below 0.
UV Spectrum analyser: allows the wearer to see into the Ultra-Violet range.
Macrobionoculars: May be used in conjunction with either of the above imaging modes. +6 to search past 100 meters.
Multi-Frequency Imaging Compiler: Utilizes Microwave, PLE, 'normal', and UV optical modes as well as the motion sensor to compile one complete image of what the wearer is seeing using the datat from all of those modes and plugging it into a Heads-up-Dsiplay(HUD). (see above for effects)
Servo-motors: Special augmenting servomotrs add +6 to the wearer's strength for the purposes of Climb, Jump, and Melee Attack Bonus rolls. The wearer also gets +3 to their move rating.
Automatic-Medpac: One effective use until refilled. Triggers when the wearer is at 0 Vitality Points or worse, unless manualy triggered. Has a First Aid skill of +15. The medpac refil costs 400 credits.
Comlink and subsapce Radio: Military grade helmet comlink with several preset tactical frequencies and easy frequency cycling. The susbapce radio has an effective rnage of 500 kilometers and both it and the comlink have high grade encryption software built in.
Envirofilter: Filters out harmful molecules from the air. May seal and run off one hour of internal air.
EM Band Short Range Sensor: Picks up energy signals within 100m
Short Range Life detection: +6 to search for life signs within 50m, +3 within 100m, and
can detect life signs up to 150m away.
Tactical and Logstical Analysis System: All the sensors equipment listed above feeds directly
into this providing a composite image of the area in all the bands lsited above(see above for
effects). Motion, eM Band, and Life Sensors all send specialy marked data to a Heads-up-Display(HUD) on the viewscreen for quick viewing. These sensors work 360 degrees at all times. The TALAS gives the wearer +6 to detect anyone trying to sneak up on them and +3 to any Tactics roll made pertaining to their current situation. Also the TALAS allows for more accurate firing of ranged wepaons giving +3 to hit.
Reflec: Reflec bends most light and sensor probes away from the armour as well as absorbing and muffling a large degree of noise, including the noise form the suit's own servomotors. When not being actively sought the wearer gets +6 to their sneak rolls and +6 is added to the difficulty of any sensor roll to detect them. If being actively sought they gain +3 to sneak, but sensors will operate within normal paramters.
