The ultimate in individual protection, Battle Dress is an advanced and powered version of combat armor. Battle dress enhances the strength and senses of individuals wearing it with variable feedback personal controls, servopowered limbs, and various kinds of electronic assistance. Battle dress is somewhat bulky, but is roughly man-sized. In addition to the enhanced strength, the suit usually has several pieces of equipment built in, including short range communicators, life support systems, and sensor enhancements.

Chameleon Option

At Tech Level 12, a chameleon surface becomes available for the combat environment suit, combat armor, or battle dress, at an additional cost of Cr1000. It selectively bleeds heat to match background IR levels and effectively renders the wearer invisible to IR sensors.

Psionic Shield Option

Beginning at Tech Level 12, psionic shielding is available as an option for any armor at an additional cost of Cr4000. Psionic shielding protects the wearer from psionic mind reading and from psionic life sensing.
