ARMOR:


GERMANICS PBA-5 BODY ARMOR- (SP: 18 EV-1) When this surplus European armor by the modern armor, it left a huge surplus, one that Chile quickly took advantage of.  In many ways it is superior to that of the modern armor, it offers more complete protection, and offers far more options for customization and added armor.  The PBA-5 is actually a complete armor system, that is worn in stages depending on duty and threat.  It all begins with this vest.  A hard shell torso plate that extends halfway down the back and chest is attached to a light form fitting armorweave (SP:8)  which connect the lobster shell stomach, side and lower back plates.  The design of the these additional plates allow for a myriad of pouches, ammo, and other equipment to be attached for a very customized loadout tailored to any situation.  The main reason this armor was replaced was due to its high cost, which was twice that of the modern system and its encumbrance, for a military force the size of the EDF, it simply wasn't cost prohibitive, it also took a bit longer to put on and take off.  But for a smaller army, even one the size of Chile's, it was more than worthwhile.

 

PBA-5 ADDITIONAL ARMOR- (SP: 12) Additional armor plates, worn at the thighs, and shoulders as well as gauntlets and shin guards, complete the basic armor ensemble.  These replace the need for a separate suit of metal gear, as a soldier can armor himself up to equivalent protection.  Sadly, there in no groin protection in any variation, another reason the system was abandoned by the EDF.

PBA-5 HELMET- (SP: 20) Fully enclosed with an optional armored faceplate/gasmask, the drop down visor is equipped with LL, Thermograph, and tele-optics and a built in short range radio completes the helmet.


AIA STEALTH ARMOR - The Chilean military does not have funds to equip even its most elite special forces team with Therm-Optic camo, instead the opt to issue the color changing AIA stealth armor.  The entire suit features a chameleon coating which allows it to switch between up to 20 pre-programmed colors and patterns at the flick of a switch.   The suit itself is mildly protective (SP: 8) and has additional armor plates on the chest, arms, and legs, (SP: 10) provide a bit more protection.  The suit is also thermal dampening, and the helmet (SP:20) features LL, IR, AD, and a radio.

SPECIAL GEAR:

  Similarto the Mexican Military, most of it a few years behind technologically and made up of surplus supplied by the EDF, Chinese, Mexicans, and Russians.
