From stark white, to the bright bursts of color, the armor of our soldiers and independent contractors is vast and always changing. Whether it be a new alloy, or a new HUD interface, these pieces of Tech are constantly improving. But they all do one basic thing: make you a better fighter. Just like the offensive blaster, your armor can be customized to any sort of situation or preference. The fighting Republic soldier, to the fierce Bounty Hunter, they are all alike in their love and use of armors.
Independents like the Bounty Hunters or the many different Security Contractors, they sometimes wield some of the most advanced and high-tech kits. The Mandalorians are well known to take great pride in their unique armor. Classically, Mandalorian armor is made of Mandalorian Iron, better known as beskar—practically blaster-proof and strong enough to withstand lightsaber attacks! But chances are you see more common durasteel and carbon fiber equipped armor, which is more economical—may not be as strong, but just as useful. It can take multiple blaster hits and withstand harsh elements. With helmet on, the wearer is practically encased in armor, which is why it is so often worn by heavy fighters.
But that helmet is one of the most effective force multipliers the combatant can utilize. Wired up with HUD interfaces, voice command recognition, and Sight Improvement Technology, the HUD can view everything that is going on inside and out. Some new improvements allow you to track up to thirty targets at once. Able to be interfaced with blasters and jets that are fitted to the back, it is pivotal in a fight. Voice commands can fire up the jet-pack communicate to other users, keeping you in constant control of the field. And no matter if you are taking the fight to the night, or through a wall, infrared and night vision lenses are a standard.
Without a doubt, one of the top fastest expanding pieces of Tech that is happening! Thanks again for tuning into BLASTech HoloZine. Remember to send in your Comms and HoloVids to BLASTech! This is Jace Draden signing out!
