Description[edit]

The Xiphos Assault Battle Armor was developed by Irian Technologies specifically to create an infantry suit protected against artillery attacks, one of the most commonly-used tactics for defeating battle armor. Manufactured on Irian and Washburn for the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth (prior to the capture of Washburn by Clan Wolf) the Xiphos was manufactured in three common configurations and specifically incorporated a high-powered communications system to allow battlefield commanders to keep lines of communication open even in the face of hostile electronic countermeasures.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

All Xiphos suits mount close to a ton of Reactive Armor and mount a Basic Manipulator on the right arm and a Modular Weapon Mount on each arm, although the mount on the left arm has the greater capacity.[1]

Variants[edit]

  • Configuration B 
    This configuration mounts a One-Shot SRM-1 in the right arm and a Plasma Rifle with twenty rounds of ammunition in the left arm. BV (2.0) = 69[1]
  • Configuration C 
    This configuration mounts a Heat Sensor in the right arm and a Heavy Flamer with ten rounds of ammunition in the left arm. BV (2.0) = 69[1]
