Description: After the destruction of Alderaan a native of that world, Almek Obsidian, became somewhat obsessive about military power, and set up Core Defence Industries (CDI) to supply defence to other worlds so the same could never happen again. However the unbalanced nature of the industrialist and the corporation he founded, led to many headaches for the fledgling New Republic, as the power weapons and vessels were sold to anyone without restriction, meaning that these state of the art weapons of war were available to terrorists, pirates and other criminals. Fortunately, for the New Republic at least, Almek Obsidian died after only a couple of years, and the absence of his genius, although unbalanced, hand at the helm meant that CDI went into receivership shortly afterwards. The CDI All Purpose Battle Armour, Basic Suit is the basis for the rest of the APBA suits. A modified form of the older Blocker armour, the APBA was designed to be easily modifiable to a variety of different roles, allowing the armour to be used in space and other dangerous environments. The Snow suit was designed to operate on low temperature worlds and to operate in snow and ice conditions, providing life support and heat to the wearer in freezing conditions. The Armour provides help in climbing and scaling the dangerous terrain as well as specialised feet modules to help traverse ice without losing traction and risking breaking through weakened areas of ice. The armour provides limited weapons in the form of a grenade deployment system, but this is not as effective as that on other armours, but the wearer is free to carry any normal offensive weaponry.
