Designation: SCAR CBR Mk. 2 Improved Tactical Armor, Plate (ITA-P)

  • Type: Hard Armor
  • Year Introduced: 2024
  • Weight: 9 kg (Light), 13 kg (Heavy)

 

The United Earth Defense Force (UEDF) improved upon the CBR Mk. 1 Tactical Armor, Plate (TA-P) in the mid 2020’s in with the CBR Mk. 2 Improved Tactical Armor, Plate (ITA-P). Like the first generation CBR armor, the CBR Mk. 2 was designed by the state owned Southern Cross Armament Research (SCAR) and manufactured by a variety of sub-contractors. The Mark 2 armor provided several improvements over the original CBR Mk. 1. These improvements included a 2 kilogram reduction in weight across the range, Magnetic Interface Locking System (MILS), Motion Reclamation System, Integrated Hydration Bladder and provision for NBC and environmental under-suits (for full descriptions, see below). The CBR Mk. 2 armor came in both heavy and light variants. The new Southern Cross armors were also extremely decorative, and the armor style not only conformed to a soldier’s gender (for obvious reasons), but to their army and rank as well. Stylistically different armors were developed for the different branches of service. Among each of these army-specific types, there were divisions between male and female armors, and distinct helmet designs for unrated enlisted men, non-commissioned officers, and officers.

Because there were a multitude of distinct types of CBR armor, the designation system was extremely arcane; for example, a female ATAC officer would wear the CBR Mk 2 ITA-P (L) AVC F/O; while a male sergeant in the Tactical Corps would wear the CBR Mk 2 ITA-P (H) Type 1 TC M/NCO, and his male subordinates would wear the CBR Mk 2 ITA-P (H) Type 1 TC M/E.

The CBR-series armors were simple battle-armor, with some environmental control for comfort, but no inherent space-capabilities. An NBC suit could be worn under the armor for protection against chemical agents. Though armies wearing this armor occasionally fought in space, there was no provision for this armor to act as a spacesuit; these soldiers had to rely upon pressurized mecha cockpits and a light weight environmental suit worn underneath the armor for limited protection from the vacuum of space in the event of an emergency.

Though effective, mobile, and comfortable armor, the CBR-series was heavy and difficult to don or remove, and with the collapse of the Southern Cross and the occupation of Earth by the Invid, the Southern Cross armor vanished from the scene. By 2045, virtually all armor worn by humans fighting on Earth was the United Earth Expeditionary Force’s CVR-3. Though the conventional knowledge claims this was due to the complexity of the armor and the long time it took to put it on, this was also the case with the CVR-3 ride armor. The real reason the CVR-3 armor remained prevalent was because it was necessary the operation of the VR-series Cyclone Veritech combat cycles. Irregular forces, it seems, are just like normal soldiers in that they will only wear their personal body armor when they are forced to.

The CBR-series armors are composed of a plastic-ceramic composite for maximal resistance to penetration and thermic explosive damage for minimal weight. The armor stops most small arms fire and grenade and shell fragments, and provides poor (in the case of the light armor) to fair (in the case of the heavy armor) resistance against heavier infantry weapons, such as a 12.7mm machinegun round. The armor consists of separate leg, arm, torso, and helmet units, and covers the entire body.

 

The CBR Mk.2-series armors have the following features: CBR Mk 2 ITA-P AVC Male Enlisted 6

Magnetic Interface Locking System (MILS): Powerful electromagnets to secure various hard-shell backpacks, traditional ruck-sacks and mission specific accessories such as jet packs. Optional utility belt that mounts to the waist. Backpacks include two standard storage pack designs, and a jet pack used mainly by the TC-Recon and the CDFC. The jet pack weighs 26kg, and permits flight up to 100 kph to altitudes as high as 650m for up to three hours.

Motion Reclamation System: A series of small electric motors at the knee and hip joints for harvesting regenerative energy naturally produced by the walking motion of the wearer. These motors induce an almost unnoticeable amount of resistance and provide enough power to keep the suit’s integrated lithium battery pack fully charged. When the battery is at full charge, these motors automatically shut off.

Integrated Hydration Bladder: Three liter bladder mounted by means of hook-and-pile fasteners to the inner back-plate. System is removable for washing and includes a hydration tube for drinking.

Thermal regulation system: Limited temperature control, by the use of Peltier-electric cooling units in armor, conducting heat between the thermally conducting inner and outer layers of the armor. A simple reversal of the voltage can alternate the armor from heating to cooling the pilot. Between the thermally conducting layers on all these pieces, and on the inner surfaces of all other pieces of armor, is a thin insulating layer, designed to minimize non-directed heat transfer. The Peltier-electric units are powered by small batteries in the armor units that contain them, and are designed to assist pilot comfort in hot and cold climes. The units are insufficient for protection above 45 and below -25 degrees Celsius. The Tactical Corps’ Arctic divisions employed armor that was more robust in this respect, capable of sustained -45 degrees operation, and included an air conditioning system that warmed the air for the wearer. The air conditioning and power supply for the additional sustained heating capacity were stored in a specialized backpack. Heat resistant up to 500K for brief periods

CBR Mk 2 ITA-P AVC Male Enlisted 7Tactical Helmet: The helmet has a removable face-shield with variable-tint photochromic polarized polycarbon eyeslits. Contrary to popular belief, the eyeslits do not have integrated night vision or IR spectrum imaging. The NVG-645 can be attached directly to the faceplate, providing both of these features.

Tactical Radio: Narrow band, short range tactical radio for communication at the platoon level. The microphone and speakers are built into the helmet. This communication system will also wirelessly synch with longer range tactical radios, both dismounted and vehicle mounted.

Optional armored shield: Different designs existed for the various armies and ranks. The GMP-EC, TAF, and CDFC tended to use shields not much larger than the forearm. The TC, ATAC, CDU, TC-Arctic, and TC-Desert use large shields as tall as the pilot’s arm is long. The other armies using the SCBA-series armor do not use shields. The GMP shield also serves as scabbard for a 50,000 Volt stun-baton that was standard issue with the armor.

Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) protection: The armor itself is coated with Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC). Additionally, an NBC Protective Under-Suit (N-PUS) can be used in place of the standard under-suit when a chemical environment is anticipated. The N-PUS includes a balaclava with integrated NBC filters. These filters are mounted flush to the cheeks and can be replaced one at a time while in a contaminated environment without having to break the balaclava’s seal. This suit is almost universally referred to as the ‘pussy suit’ by UEDF personnel.

Environmental Protection Under-Suit (EPUS): The CBR Mark 2 was also designed to be used with an Environmental Protection Under-Suit. The EPUS was a thin, light weight pressure unisuit designed to be worn under the armor in place of the normal base layer. The unisuit had a standard neck ring that sealed to a balaclava fitted with a low profile breathing apparatus. Though this under-suit was fully pressurized and suitable for use in space for short periods of time, it was really designed for use on low atmosphere planets such as Mars. While the EPUS was fully pressurized and provided oxygen for extended periods of time, it did not have sufficient shielding to protect the wearer from the hard radiation of space.

RRG CHR-1 Hostile Environment Suit (HES)

HES 2ROBOTECH Technical Files

  • HES Armor reference file
  • HES Armor gallery

Designation: RRG CHR-1 Hostile Environment Suit (HES)

  • Year Introduced: 2004
  • Type: Hard Armor
  • Weight: 18kg

As the repair of the SDF-1 proceeded, the UN Spacy began to feel the need for a new generation of environment suit. The suit had to be hard, both to protect from micrometeorites in space, as well as weapons fire and shrapnel. It had to have good protection from radiation, so that it could be used in the engineering areas of capital ships as a work suit, and it had have a low thermal profile, so forward observers wearing the armor would be relatively undetectable by IR sensors. In other words, the requirements called for a jack-of-all-trades.

The HES (Hostile Environment Suit) was definitely that; but it was also master of none. It was heavy, clunky, and not particularly mobile. Because of this, it was a long way from meeting the needs of a military environment suit, or a personal armor suit for an infantryman. The HES, on the other hand, was an excellent suit for engineers in both extreme-temperature and high-radiation environments, and it was in this capacity that the HES was primarily used. In fact, it was only retired from this purpose in 2051 with the introduction of the HES2 by the Terran Navy.

The HES is composed of a plastic-ceramic composite for maximal resistance to penetration and thermic explosive damage for minimal weight. The armor provides excellent protection against small grenade and shell fragments, good protection against small arms fire, and poor resistance to heavier infantry weapons, such as the 12.7mm machinegun round, as well as from fragments and near misses from higher caliber weapons. The HES armor consists of a single full-body unit and a separate helmet.

The HES armor has the following features:

  • Full temperature control, by the use of Peltier-electric cooling units in armor, conducting heat between the thermally conducting inner and outer layers of the armor. A simple reversal of the voltage can alternate the armor from heating to cooling the pilot. Between the thermally conducting layers on all these pieces, and on the inner surfaces of all other pieces of armor, is a thin insulating layer, designed to minimize non-directed heat transfer. The Peltier-electric units are powered by small batteries in the armor units that contain them, and are designed to assist pilot comfort in hot and cold climes. The units are insufficient for protection above 60 and below -40 degrees Celsius.
  • Full pressure control. The suit is rated from a vacuum to a pressure of 250 kilopascals.
  • Independent Oxygen supply, 60 minutes maximum.
  • Heat resistant up to 500K for brief periods
  • Helmet with variable-tint photochromic polarized polycarbon faceplate.
  • Radio microphone and speakers in the helmet

by Tim Wing

The FAMAS (or FA-MAS), designated in the French army as “assault rifle 1 of 5.56mm F1 MAS model,” was a bullpup style assault rifle chambered in 5.56 × 45 mm NATO, originally manufactured by the Manufacture d’armes de Saint-Étienne and later by GIAT Industries. Commissioned in the 1970s by the French Army, the FAMAS responded to the desire for a small but powerful and easy to maintain battle rifle. The FAMAS, or the “Bugle” as it was often referred to by its users, served in the French Army until its absorption into the United Earth Defense Forces (UEDF). It also was adopted by the UN Spacy in the early years of the agency’s existence along with the AR15A4, until both were replaced by the AR21.

FN “Browning Hi Power” 9mm Service Pistol

230FN “Browning Hi Power” 9mm Service Pistol

by Tim Wing

The Browning Hi Power was a single-action, semi-automatic handgun chambered in 9mm Luger, used by the UN Spacy and later the United Earth Defense Forces (UEDF). It was based on a design by American firearms inventor John Browning and completed by Dieudonné Saive at Fabrique Nationale (FN) of Herstal, Belgium. The Hi Power was one of the most widely used military pistols in history, having been used by the armed forces of over 50 countries. The Hi Power was adopted into service by the UN Spacy in the early years of its existence, not so much because it was the best pistol available, but because it was the single most widely used military pistol at that time. Though the Hi Power would be replaced later by the M37 Weasel, due to the sheer numbers of the pistol in service, it never did totally leave UEDF inventory. Nowadays people will go more towards Revolver and BB handguns as they are safer to use and can be used as a deterrent to others rather than using firearms.

  • Type: Semi-automatic pistol
  • Place of origin: Belgium
  • Service history: 1935–present
  • Used by: Everyone
  • Manufacturer: Fabrique Nationale (FN)
  • Produced: 1935–2011
  • Number built: 1,000,000+
  • Cartridge: 9×19mm Parabellum
  • Effective firing range: 50 m
  • Capacity: 13 rounds (9mm)

Designation: Fesh’etmi Kisel-zırh (UEDF reproting name: TPR-L Mk.III Terminator) Combat/Security Body Armor

Note that this file is not meant to be comprehensive, but instead merely illustrative. The Tirolians have produced innumerable arms and armor throughout the centuries, and many can be found still in use. Some designs (and even some weapons) as old as thirteen centuries may be encountered. This file is intended to reflect the most common weapons and armor still in active service in the twenty-first century, when Earth encountered Tirol, and when the dying empire of the Masters finally collapsed.

  • Type: Powered Hard Armor
  • Year Introduced: 1295
  • Assisted running speed: 72 kph for short periods
  • Weight: 55.3 kg

Fesh'etmi Kisel-zırh 2Though the Tirolians have developed many armors over the long centuries, none have remained service as long as this suit, which began as the standard armor suit for the Ceremonial Guard of the old Tirolian Republic, and has served since 1450 as the armor of the internal ceremonial security aboard the Elders’ and Masters’ motherships and the Imperial possessions on the surface of Tirol and her colonies, finally ceasing to be produced with the fall of Tirol and the destruction of the Masters over Earth.

The Tirolian armor began as simple battle-armor, with some environmental control for comfort, but no inherent space-capabilities. A limited environmental suit could be worn under the armor for protection against chemical agents. As the years passed, however, further features were added to the suit, to assist in its function in internal security and police work. This armor was never used in large numbers in the field, since the Robotech Masters had long left traditional infantry actions to their Zentraedi slaves.

The Tirolian armor is composed of a plastic-ceramic composite for maximal resistance to penetration and thermic explosive damage for minimal weight. The armor stops all small arms fire, provides fair protection against heavier infantry weapons, such as a 12.7mm machinegun round, and poor resistance to light mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Zentraedi 22.3mm HE autocannon round.

  • The Tirolian armor has the following features:
    Limited temperature control, by the use of Peltier-electric cooling units in armor, conducting heat between the thermally conducting inner and outer layers of the armor. A simple reversal of the voltage can alternate the armor from heating to cooling the pilot. Between the thermally conducting layers on all these pieces, and on the inner surfaces of all other pieces of armor, is a thin insulating layer, designed to minimize non-directed heat transfer. The Peltier-electric units are powered by small batteries in the armor units that contain them, and are designed to assist pilot comfort in hot and cold climes. The units are insufficient for protection above 50 and below -30 degrees Celsius.
  • Fesh'etmi Kisel-zırh 3Heat resistant up to 550K for brief periods.
  • Radio microphone and speakers in the helmet.
  • Data display onto eyepiece, as well as numerous optics options, including wide-view, infra-red, telescopic, motion detector, and millimetric radar overlays onto visual band image.
  • It is possible to wear an environment suit under the Tirolian armor, with the external consumables supply leads going through the suit by way of special channels in the armor, after which they can plug into an environmental supply backpack.

by Tim Wing

The CVR-2 was an environmental armor designed to be used with the short lived series of “Space Cyclones” used by the United Earth Expeditionary Force (UEEF). Since the CVR-2 was meant to be used in the weightlessness of space, weight was less of a concern. This allowed the designers to imbue the CVR-2 with greater armor protection and increased protection against hard radiation.

General Characteristics

  • Weight: 14 kg

Features

  • Computer controlled life support system
  • Temperature resistant shielding
  • Radiological shielding
  • Internal oxygen supply
