Note that this file is not meant to be comprehensive, but instead merely illustrative. The Tirolians have produced innumerable arms and armor throughout the centuries, and many can be found still in use. Some designs (and even some weapons) as old as thirteen centuries may be encountered. This file is intended to reflect the most common weapons and armor still in active service in the twenty-first century, when Earth encountered Tirol, and when the dying empire of the Masters finally collapsed.

This suit is the basic life support suit used by the Tirolian civilians and light-duty military. It provides complete environmental control for use in space or in deep water. The suit has a rigid exterior that provides minimal protection from attack, although primarily for use in repelling space debris or withstanding the pressures of deep water.

The Tirolian suit is composed of a plastic-ceramic composite for maximal resistance to penetration and thermic explosive damage for minimal weight. The armor stops most small arms fire, provides poor protection against heavier infantry weapons, such as a 12.7mm machinegun round, and no resistance to light mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Zentraedi 22.3mm HE autocannon round.

The Tirolian environment suit has the following features:
