Enhanced Prosthetic (Concealed Holster/Cargo Unit)
A common tool used by field agents with Enhanced Prosthetics, Concealed Holsters or Cargo Units allowed one to hide an item within the thigh section of a prosthetic leg. Special mechanical fast-draw holsters allowed for an agent to conceal a full-size pistol or short blade. The ability to perform a quick draw on an opponent did require that their clothing be sufficiently modified, but it gave the agent the appearance of being unarmed and the element of surprise. Rather than a special holster assembly, the thigh could also be converted into a general storage area, able to contain objects in a space no bigger than half the width and length of the thigh. These could be anything from data disks to explosives.
As with other prosthetic enhancements, these were employed only by the intelligence agencies of the Inner Sphere with agents who already had a Type 3 or superior prosthetic leg. The Clans were too philosophically opposed and the Periphery too poor to make use of them beyond rare cases. Among the Manei Domini, this upgrade was available to all agents with the necessary prosthetic limb.
