Flak Suit


Standard personal armour, effective against ballistic personal weapons but not energy weapons.


The development of personal armour has been a military necessity for hundreds of centuries. In the current era, the most common civilian armour materials are bullet-resistant but not laser-ablative. This includes the flak component of ablative/flak armour and other anti-ballistic materials. The development of laser weapons makes much personal armour obsolete. Flak armour and equivalent anti-ballistic armour is generally limited to clothing, environment suits, and civilian-grade bulletproof vests.

Flak armour is only effective against physical and ballistic damage not energy based weapons. It is cheaper than ablative/flak armour.

Light Flak Suits absorb a total of 20 points of non-energy damage, and reduce by half the damage from ballistic weapons. A Light Flak Suit does not halve the damage from melee weapons. Light suits include pants and vest, pants and jacket, fatigues, an coat, or a heavy bulletproof vest. Light Ablative/Flak Suits can be concealed, or disguised as normal clothing.

Heavy Flak Suits absorb 35 points of non-energy damage and reduce the damage from ballistic weapons and non-energy based melee attacks by one-half. A body suit also reduces the wearer’s movement by one half. Heavy suits include pants and jacket, pants and coat, or fatigues. Heavy Ablative/Flak Suits can not be concealed or disguised as normal clothing.
