Talon Medium Battledress

design by Jon Goff

Anyhow, this is the standard BattleDress for the New Earth Republic. (For Details on the NER, see the Rim League on the Peri page) It contains many electronic goodies, and some integral weapons. The thing is capable of carrying 24kg of "Cargo" (ie equipment) without slowing down. The thing is powered by a fuel cell, so it has good endurance, and can be refueled with LHyd in no-time flat. Of course if you run out of Hydrocarb distillates, you better hope you have some cheap whiskey, some replacement catalysts, and a VERY understanding technical crew.....

Anyhow, compared to RCES Light Battledress: Lighter, Heavier Armor, more goodies, greater endurance, integral weapons, and Cheaper too....Of course it doesn't have WSV goggles, and it can't be repowered from a plug socket, but oh well. With the fuel being only 3.65kg of LHyd, it is rather small, and light. Heck, with some of the empty space you could give it a week's fuel.
