Description[]

Standard-issue Andromeda Initiative hardsuits are designed for exploration as much as combat, combining jump-jets, high-grade external and internal sensors, and a variety of atmospheric filters with the usual kinetic barrier generators and ceramic armor plating. This particular suit has been customized according to specific hazard data gathered from the Heleus Cluster.
