Caramelles Star Kingdom Military Weapons and Armor (Three Galaxies):
- Heavy Combat Armor:
- Combat armor is issued to army troops and is a loose copy of the Consortium
Heavy Battle Armor. The armor is worn in combat situations although first
wave troops are equipped with combat power armor. Even though fairly heavy,
the armor gives reasonable mobility to the wearer.
The armor is designed to reduce the thermal signature of the wearer to almost nothing, making night vision sensors virtually useless against the armor. In addition to standard equipment, the armor is equipped with a laser communication array. The communication array is line of site only but cannot be intercepted or detected unless the beam is blocked. Like the similar Consortium model, these armors have an attachment for an energy backpack
These combat armors are grey green. Rank markings are on the shoulders of the armor for enlisted and on the collar for officers. In both cases, the rank markings are black and hard to determine at long distances. The armor is also sold outside of the kingdom.
- Main Body: 120
Arms (2): 65
Legs (2): 80

- This jumpsuit is a copy of the Consortium Jumpsuit worn by the fleet
although issued to some army personnel as well (Mainly fighter pilots and
vehicle crews.) Form fitting, it is lightweight and impairs movement very
little. Using high tech metal ceramic fibers that are extremely strong,
the material transforms into being ultra-hard when hit by a high velocity
round. While the suit is not designed for serious combat situation, it
is worn aboard all warships in combat situations.
When in hostile environment or in a vacuum, gloves and a helmet are worn. Jumpsuits have limited life support compared to most hard , one hour, although can attach an air tank for extended use. Has a standard communication suit built into the armor and also is designed to deal with high temperatures and radiation.
Enlisted navy jumpsuits are a dark grey with rank insignia on shoulders in red. Officer navy jumpsuits are a lighter grey with shoulder boards representing rank. Rank markings for officers are silver and gold. Army jumpsuits are a green grey with enlisted having rank on shoulders but no shoulder boards or officers but instead rank only on collar of the jumpsuit. Rank markings for army suits are subdued, black instead of gold and silver. The kingdom sells these armors in a variety of different colors with the exception of grey.

part of such outfits can be protected. As well, often an armor jacket or
long coat is worn. These suits are not available to commoners although
are exported and are quite popular. Unlike standard body armors, these
armors have an optional A.R. Rating (GM option can ignore the A.R. ratings.)
