Selono "Techniflex" TASS Body Armor
Body armor is essential to the survival of expensively-trained and
irreplaceable combat soldiers. Personal armor can range from simple
blast and flak vests to bulky, full-body suits. While these body
armors provide protection for their user, each of them has their own
Shock troops are constantly under attack, and movement and flexibility
during combat-tense situations is absolutely vital. Too many body suits
intended to protect the soldier inside reduce the user's agility and
ease of movement, causing him severe discomfort and danger on the
battlefield. Even the Empire's highly-potent stormtrooper armor restricts
the soldier's ability to perform in combat; however, the Empire has
invested thousands of untold credits into dexterous-armor programs for
use with their forces.
The solution is the Selono "Techniflex" system. Selono "Techniflex" is
a revolutionary breakthrough in personal armor, providing maximum
protection along with maximum flexibility. The TASS, or Total Armored
Support System, is the finest combat armor available on the open market.
"Techniflex" armor incorporates a flexible body glove with state-of-the-
art graphite plating. The graphite of the TASS is extremely light, but is
quite capabale of stopping a blaster rifle bolt from fifty meters or
greater, depending on conditions. The body glove is made out of soft
nylon material that is inter-twined with Kevlar, making the armor almost
completely waterproof. The body glove is 'wooven' so tightly that it can
even offer protection against under-powered knife and melee weapon attacks.
The Selono "Techniflex" system includes a coverall-body glove and armor
protection for the chest, back, torso, elbows, groin, hands, thighs, and
shins, with optional shoulder armor. A helmet is also available, and is
made out of the same material as the rest of the armor. Any piece of the
TASS system can be removed at a soldier's discretion with extreme ease.
