The skin of the Volcano is composed of an advanced titanium-steel alloy.
The armored skin stops all small arms fire, provides good protection
against heavier infantry weapons, such as a 12.7mm machinegun round, and
fair resistance to light mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Zentraedi
22.3mm HE autocannon round. The total protection marginally better than that on the Valkyrie. The Volcano provides full protection from nuclear, biological, and chemical hazards, using an overpressure cockpit environment activated by radiation and hazardous chemical sensors, or manually when biological warfare conditions are anticipated. The internal consumables supplies can provide atmosphere for one day maximum.
