Federated Suns Infantry Kit

Overview[edit]

The Federated Suns Infantry Armor Kit is the standard-issue armor kit for infantry of the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns. This kit has actually gone through a number of changes since originally created for the Federated Suns, resulting in its current post-Federated Commonwealth form. The communication system originally mounted in the heavy gloves was moved into the helmet and the combat jacket modified for superior range of movement at the expense of protection.[1]
