The SIPES, or specialized infantry protection/equipment system, is actually a concept used in part by both Imperial Intelligence and the New Republic Special Forces in many covert operations. It is simply a specialized combat suit that carries everything a soldier may need on the modern battlefield including basic supplies and even advanced targeting systems.
The SIPES' helmet covers the user's head fully with a reinforced and darkened transparisteel visor with internal targeting displays, infrared images, light amplification system, macrobinoculars and an internal tongue activated comlink with an effective range of up to a kilometer (helmet is insulated against sound and talking at normal tone inside the helmet will produce no external sounds).
The basic suit is a modified combat jumpsuit with light armor and the ever popular knee-high boots. The suit has several pockets to accomodate anything the soldier may need in addition to the pistol holster, grenade pockets and knife sheath. The suit is typically complemented with a pair of black gloves that fit over the fingerless hand coverings that come with it. The suit also boasts a strapless back pack (which is held on by four clips) which can be swapped for a comlink back pack, ammunition back pack or a power generator depending upon mission profiles.
The SIPES comes in literally hundreds of different camoflauge patterns that range from a standard flat black to a desert pattern for desert operations. For an additional two hundred credits NeuroSaav will throw in a sealed body suit for extreme enviroments protecting the soldier from extreme cold and extreme heat.
