Provided as part of a briefing to Black Talon 5 after their two-week vacation:

Armoured Tactical Piloting System Series 1
ATAPS I BDU

After extensive pilot review and investigation into the products of the polar leagues, along with progress in ultralight armour metallurgy, the Black Talon BDU is being replaced with the Armoured Tactical Piloting System (ATAPS) series 1 suit. This suit retains the light weight and flexibility of its predecessor while providing the pilot with greater protection from projectiles and concussive forces. It features:

* Semi-flexible armour plating equivalent to the HERACLES infantry armour system found in the Southern Republic.
* Complete temperature control between 150 and -150 degrees centigrade.
* Life support systems capable of supporting the pilot for up to 36 hours in a vacuum (provided with proper temperature regulation)
* A Radiation-adsorbtive layer capable of negating 4 RADs/hour up to 200 RADs
* Flame resistance equivalent to the previous BDU.
* Electrical resistance sufficient to nullify secondary particle accelerator charge.
* A radar-adsorbtive abrasion-resistant non-specular surface coating in Charcoal (II) General Camouflage pattern.

ATAPS I BDU:
Armour 10 (10 vs flames)(5 vs Electricity), 0 Encumbrance, Limited Life Support (36 hours), HEP: Vacuum, Rad(4). 1.5kg, concealable.
- +1 to Stealth in level 2 or greater darkness.

Armoured Tactical Piloting System Series 2
ATAPS II BDU

In addition to the ATAPS I system, Black Talon teams are being provided with Armoured Tactical Piloting Systems, Series 2 (ATAPS II). These were adapted from the Paxton Arms Xiphon series of infantry armour. ATAPS II features lightweight rigid and semi-rigid armour plating, offering the wearer superior mobility for armours of this type. It integrates features of ATAPS I, but is considered too bulky for use by a pilot while in operation. Those pilots who are of smaller build or who have larger crew compartments may be able to wear the system while mounted, but it is generally assumed that the soldier will be using the system while dismounted. In addition to the features of ATAPS I, ATAPS II features:

* Fully rigid armour plating which provides 100% protection of all vitals and upwards of 80% protection of extremities.
* A self-sealing internal glue/gel layer which creates a rigid armoured surface over any ruptures.
* Additionally, the glue/gel layer is doped with Encephelaxin and Pseudoepinephrine nodules to counteract any pilot injury.

ATAPS II BDU:
Armour 20 (10 vs flames)(5 vs Electricity), -1 Encumbrance (Counteracted by +1 strength), Limited Life Support (36 hours), HEP: Vacuum, Rad(4). 2.2 kg, somewhat concealable.
- +1 to Stealth in level 2 or greater darkness.
- Administers an antiseptic to any pilot injuries, providing a +1 to resist wound degradation.
- Administers a Potency 7 Stimulant to any pilot injuries, allowing up to a +1 to counteract unconsciousness-related Health checks.
- May be worn while piloting by anyone of BLD 0 or smaller, unless in a Cheetah or other otherwise-limited vehicle - these vehicles require BLD of -1 or smaller. May be worn by anyone in a size 7 Gear.

One-Man-Army Tactical System
OMATS BDU

After thorough examination of captured extraterranovan technologies (ETNTs), Paxton Arms' Protective Systems R&D Division has produced the One Man Army Tactical System (OMATS) BDU. This sophisticated protective system is the pinnacle of high-resilience personal armours available on the planet. While it is certainly not capable of being worn by mounted pilots, it will provide the highest level of protection to Talons in dismounted operations. The OMATS BDU features:

* As much armour as the Norguard ARMADILLO protective system
* Integrated micro-actuators and a semi-rigid exoskeleton capable of aiding the operator in carrying the weight of the system.
* Internal temperature equalization systems capable of maintaining a comfortable environment for the operator, or alternatively, capable of near-equalizing her temperature with that of the environment.

* An integrated superconductive battery that can be charged through induction or through the breathing and movement of the operator.
* Integrated medical sensors allowing mission commanders to maintain operational knowledge of the health of his team.
* Life support systems capable of supporting the operator for up to 36 hours in a vacuum (provided with proper temperature regulation)
* A Radiation-adsorbtive layer capable of negating 4 RADs/hour up to 200 RADs
* Flame resistance equivalent to the previous BDUs.
* Electrical resistance sufficient to nullify secondary particle accelerator charge.
* A radar-adsorbtive abrasion-resistant non-specular surface coating in Charcoal (II) General Camouflage pattern.
* A self-sealing internal glue/gel layer which creates a rigid armoured surface over any ruptures.
* Additionally, the glue/gel layer is doped with Encephelaxin and Pseudoepinephrine nodules to counteract any operator injury.

OMATS BDU:
Armour 50 (10 vs flames)(5 vs Electricity), -1 Encumbrance (Counteracted by +1 strength), Limited Life Support (36 hours), HEP: Vacuum, Rad(4). 18kg, not concealable.
- -1 to Stealth if in less than level 1 darkness.
- +1 to Stealth in level 3 darkness.
- Administers an antiseptic to any operator injuries, providing a +1 to resist wound degradation.
- Administers a Potency 7 Stimulant to any operator injuries, allowing up to a +1 to counteract unconsciousness-related Health checks.

Tactical Awareness And Control System
TAACS

The Tactical Awareness and Control System (TAACS) is the newest Black Talon pilot and combat helmet. Its specifications have been compiled from thousands of surveys and field reports around the world and on Caprice, making this the most comfortable helmet so far employed by the Talons. Additionally, it has more options in its Tactical Awareness systems while maintaining the ruggedness and durability of its predecessors. It will accept the standard Vehicle Control Trideo Headset (VCTHIIa being standard for the Talons) or may be worn independantly. It mates to ATAPS I and II, OMATS, and all previous Talon BDU systems. It features:

* Significant protection to the head and neck
* A non-fog low-specularity vision plate that provides excellent range of vision, especially in peripheral vision.
* An integrated HUD and display computer that can communicate with any standard Talon sensor system.
* True-To-Life sound replication up to 0.5 decibels.
* Integrated magnification systems and on-demand trideo recorder.
* Encrypted military-grade communication system
* Optional infared/omnicam sensor blisters

TAACS
Armor 45 (10 vs Flames)(5 vs Electricity), Limited Life Support (36 Hours), HEP: Vacuum, Rad (4). 1.5kg, not concealable.
- Comms -1/10km
- Optional -1/2km Sensors
- +1 to KNO checks to recall something previously seen
