Skelly Flight Suit

A customized version of armored flight suit. Byron doesn't have a lot of clothes so will wear the flight suit frequently enough when piloting his ship and traveling between systems. A plain design that is shared with numerous other spaces, Byron often puts on a jacket over his flightsuit which somewhat makes him look a little more relaxed and comfortable in the outfit. It has noticable signs of wear and tear but has kept him safe so far. His flight jacket has a patch from each place he's gone to (when he remembers to get one) but for now only has a handful. Because the suits reliance on remaining air tight Byron made sure the suit itself is made with a layer over armorweave to prevent high speed debris from causing dangerous depressurization.


LEGALITY

Legal

INTENT

A personal armored flight suit for Byron when he needs it. I intend to also use it to track any personal changes or upgrades.

RESTRICTED TECH
It's basic af but it's one of a kind.

Type and Coverage

Type: Light Armor

Coverage: (Coverage regions for Light armor is 1-3 regions, Medium is 4-5, Heavy is 6-7)


  • Head: Open faced helmet with attachable mask.
  • Chest: Lightweight blast vest with removable Duraplast plate inserts
  • Back: Lightweight blast vest with removable Duraplast plate inserts

Functions


Function 1: Rebreather
  • Rebreathers, whether built into a helmet or a separate mask, allow for the wearer to breath underwater or in space for brief amounts of time by scrubbing CO2 from their exhaled breath and recycling it. Generally this lasts for up to 5 posts, but heavy exertion can shorten that time.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes
Function 2: Emergency Vac-Seal
  • It's no replacement for a dedicated spacesuit if you intend to EVA, but this under suit, when combined with a helmet, can protect the wearer from the immediate effects of exposure to a vacuum for up 5 posting rounds. You still need a way to breathe, however.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes
Function 3: 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- however, without other protective gear, the life support box itself provides only 3 rounds of protection from the elements. It 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 much longer time than its wearer can survive.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes
Function 4: Armorweave accessory
  • Most often in the form of a heavy cape, skirt, or underlay beneath armor, armor weave provides some protection against the penetrating effects of shrapnel from explosives and other unpowered high velocity impacts, with only a small amount of bleed through damage (bruising or very minor wounds). It offers no protection against kinetic impact or energy, vibroweapons, or similar "powered" weapons. Having more than one accessory (example: Cape + underweave) provides no additional effect.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes
Function 5: Survival HUD
  • Reads atmosphere composition and detects toxins.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes
