Description: The Ubese raider armor, also known as Ubese armor, was a type of armor usually worn by Ubese trackers.
Ubese armors offered a high degree of protection against energy-based weapons like blasters but lesser protection from kinetic damage. A complete armor set consisted of a helmet, a shirt, a jacket with impact armor for the neck and chest, chest-mounted comlink and Ubese clan belt-clasp, left & right bracer, spiked gloves, a bandolier with projectile detonator and ammo pouches, pants and boots. It was available in several different colors. The armor was ideally suited for upgrades and modifications.
The helmet featured a flash guard visor, a targeting laser, a vision-plus scanner, an audio pickup, a broadband antenna, a speech scrambler. The headgear also contained an enviro filter designed to filtrate toxic fumes and maintain a Type II atmosphere for Ubese traveling throughout the galaxy. For non-Ubese users, it was possible to adapt the helmet to accept a Type I enviro-filter but the modification reduced the reliability of the seal.
During the Galactic Civil War, Ubese armors became popular among spacers. In addition, a number of bounty hunters affiliated with the Rebel Alliance used to wear this kind of armor. The armor was also worn by Sith Shadow warriors.
The bounty hunter Boushh was an individual who wore an Ubese armor. That particular suit was also used by Leia Organa in 4 ABY, when attempting to rescue Han Solo from Jabba's Palace.
