Armor

Armor has been used and adapeted for thousnads of years. Even today there are defences to lasers, plasma and the other weapons used against our forces. The UNSC decided to make a few suits of armor that would protect against a moderate ammount of everything allowing soliders to live though as many diffrent senerios as they could come up with. There are also police and civilan armors often issued to merchant Marines and traders.

If it protects from engery it is equipped with a personal shield. There are some suites that will protect from radiation with out a shield. Any radiation damage is first deducted from the shield then the suit. They are noted with an *

If you do not meet the level of the armor you have a -x2 the diffence in your skill. EG your trying to fix a spaceship using a hardened EVA suit. Your EVA skill is 50 so you have a 10 point diffrence so all skills are -20%

If wearing armor the wieght only counts as 1/4 to your encombrance as it is spead out over the entire body as a load bearing system. EG you are holding an EVA suit and carring it across the ship in your arms. This would weight 40 lbs why? Its in your arms and not spread over your entire body. If you are wearing it then its only 10 lbs because you have spread the weight out.
