Arden's Flight Suit

After learning his lesson and risking exposure to space on a job, Arden decided that getting a suit designed specifically for space would be worth the trouble. The suit still bears the typical Mandalorian style and craftsmanship, though its combat capabilities have largely been swapped out for systems that would help him survive and maneuver in space if he ever ended up being jettisoned in some way.

The armour is made out of Durasteel, like most suits of Beskar'gam these days. But a lot of armour has been traded off for comfort and ease of maneuverability. It also boasts all the essentials needed for survival. The style is very reminiscent of the suits used by the Protectors and other Mandalorian pilots before the Purge and other tragedies that befell the Mandalorian people.

LEGALITY

Mandalorian armor, though rare, is not illegal in most places. That said, wearing a full face helmet in public spaces is frowned upon, and often illegal in many core worlds, especially in or near government facilities- not to mention that many identification cards in various systems require a full face photo. This drives many strict adherents of "the way" to operate exclusively on the fringes of the galaxy.

To create a write up for Arden's space suit for when he needs to go into space. Based on the Armoured Flight Suit

Functions



Function 1: Rebreather
  • Rebreathers allow for a person to survive underwater or in space for brief amounts of time by scrubbing CO2 from their exhaled breath. Generally this lasts for 5 posts, but heavy exertion can shorten that time.
Function 2: Life-Support Box
  • Life support boxes are emergency gear designed to be worn in conjunction with other safety equipment, such as vac-suits and rebreathers. The device can be manually activated via a switch on the chest box, but most also automatically engage when exposed to vacuum. When activated, the device projects a small mag-shield "bubble" around the user that is just strong enough to contain a tiny amount of livable atmosphere. Life support boxes double the protection provided by vac seals and rebreathers. Without other protective gear, the life support box itself provides only 3 rounds of protection. The system also contains a high power distress beacon that the broadcasts the pilots precise coordinates to any ship within a parsec. The distress beacon can be manually deactivated, and can broadcast for s much longer time than its wearer can survive.
Function 3: Mag-Boots
  • Magnetic boots contain electromagnets in the soles and allow for enhanced movement on ferrous surfaces in microgravity or steep gradients. This functionality must be turned on or off manually by a button or switch.
Function 4: Jet Pack
  • Jet packs are back mounted units used by elite troops increase their mobility on the battlefield. The jet pack's maximum speed is 50 kph and it carries fuel for up to five minutes of continuous flight (flight mode), but can also be fired in short bursts triggered by jumping (combat mode). The wearer can control the system to switch between modes and/or disengage it from their armor via wrist controls. These packs are cumbersome, adding an additional 8kg for the average human (larger individuals will have heavier jet packs to support their weight). While the fuel is stable enough not to explode, direct hits from weapons can trigger the system inadvertently, after which it is rendered useless.
Function 5: Emergency Vac-Suit
  • It's no replacement for a spacesuit if you intend to EVA, but this undersuit, if combined with a helmet, can protect the wearer from the immediate effects of exposure to a vacuum for 5 posting rounds. You still need a way to breathe, however.
