Heavy Body Armor

Zentraedi Seal
Heavy Body Armor
ArmorWeapon Separator

NOTE: The average Zentraedi stands 9.5 meter tall and weighs approximately 14 tons.

Protection :

Full nuclear, biological and chemical protection, immunity from hand fired solids and energy beams, shrapnel and other fragments. Very limited protection from heavier weaponry, adequate only up to 23mm autocannon shells and other comparative weapons.


All Zentraedi were issued body armor for their combat duties. The heavy armor was almost exclusively worn in the field, both by Zentraedi footsoldiers and by pilots of both the Officer's and Tactical battlepods, even in the cramped conditions of those vehicles' cockpits. This extra armor was just as good as the Regult's own armor, and the use of it in the cockpit was found to dramatically increase the combat survivability of both pod and pilot. Pilots of the power armors and fighter pods relied on an unarmored flight suit.
