Tactical Vest

The tactical vest is the most common form of armor among the Agen solar system. It is relatively simple to make, consisting mainly of a ballistic nylon weave. It only covers the center of mass, but usually comes with a light helmet as well. It is light and allows flexibility, but lacking plates it does very little to stop bullets. Being so easy to make, most nations mass produce it for military purposes.

 

Titan Vest

Titan Armor Manufacturing created this lightweight, cost effective vest for civilians who live in high danger areas. A thick fabric that house’s TAM’s patented Titanium plates, it provides a cheap protection against firearms.

 

Carbon Weave Jacket

This jacket is an thick blend of ballistic nylon and artificial leather. It can stop most impact weapons but is shredded by firearms. This is a common armor worn by pilots, pirates, and traders. It is easy to manufacture, any armorer can create it.

Slim Body Armor

A basic synthetic full body armor. A ballistic nylon weave with light ceramic plates placed throughout it. This is the most common form of full body armor, but it is still quite rare. Special forces troops in most nations wear this type of armor. It is not common for the typical soldier.

 

Half Titan Plate

Titan Armor Manufacturing’s premium full body protection. A series of overlapping titanium plates with a thick synthetic fiber underlay protects the user's whole body. The material is very inflexible and heavy, restricting the user's movements. It is a great protection from impact weapons, but not as effective for firearms considering the weight.

 

Flex Carbon Scales

A pattern of thin, durable, carbon scales covers the user head to toe. It is exceptionally light and capable of deflecting direct and indirect firearm rounds. The scales have gaps though and during melee combat weapons can find a way through. It is light and extremely flexible. Designed by CBA Goods, it is considered the highest end medium armor on the market. Very expensive and rare, it is coveted by it’s owners who are usually high paid mercenaries or snipers.

Ballistic Mesh Suit

The most common heavy armor in production. It is a combination of para-aramid synthetic fibers and ceramic plates. It is heavy, but flexible and offers moderate protection from firearms. The heavy synthetic fibers grant a small amount of environment resistance granting the wearer a fire resistance of 2 and a cold resistance of 2.

 

Hardened Carbon Scales

Custom Ballistic Apparel (CBA) Goods highest quality armor is the Hardened Carbon Scales also known as HC Scales. It is very similar to the lightweight FC Scales. The scales are harder and larger making it better against melee weapons. The scales are also heavier though and greatly restrict movement. It is considered by many to be the best heavy armor available. This armor is custom made for each user by appointment only. Finding a functioning version of HC Scales will always have to be refitted for the new user. Wearing a suit of HC Scale armor that has not been refitted gains the broken status (that applies to the deflection bonus).

 

Full Titan Plate

Titan Armor Manufacturing (TAM) full plate armor is the penultimate in shock trooper gear. It has limited flexibility, but is more durable than anything on the market. Rarely used in firefights, it offers unparalleled protection in a melee. This is as close to mass manufactured as heavy armor gets. Titan makes the armor one size fits all.

 

Vortine Plate

Vortine plate is made from a vortium mineral composite that is also used on spacecraft. Vortium is extremely rare and hard to work with. Only some of the best armorer’s in the galaxy can work with it. All suits in existence were created specifically for their users. Finding a functioning version of Vortine Plate will always have to be refitted for the new user. Wearing a suite of vortine armor that has not been refitted gains the broken status (that applies to the deflection bonus).
