Or datasuit, as it is also called. This incredibly thin suit is meant to be worn under powered armor, and transmits the wearer's commands to the landmate. Datafilm has an SP of 6. It protects against acids, alkali's and other chemicals, lets sweat escape while repelling water and cushions shock. It is a fabulous invention (in the words of SHIROW himself). Apperantly if the wearer is knifed it would hurt a great deal but the blade would not penetrate the datasuit. It's made if the same materials used to coat cyborg and landmate musculature. Data suits come in a variety of colors and pattern and are made by several different companies. Due to the tight fit and variations in height, weight and structure I would imagine that each datasuit is custom made for the specific wearer. You must wear a datasuit to operate a landmate. Cost varies from 200eb to 2000 eb depending on manufacturer and design. The suit gives +3 to any ref action made while using a land mate. Available to public.

As thin as a data suit but with a completely different purpose. This suit is very similar to the Militech M95 Ghost suit but is far superior, as the wearer becomes virtually invisible when the suit is activated. The suit is very hard to detect, but a slight blur can be seen when the wearer is in motion. As long as the wearer stays still they are virtually impossible to detect. While normally detectable by certain heat imaging optics some suits can be made which reduce IR signature. No EV penalties apply and this suit is usually worn under some type of armor, which must be taken off before use. This suit offers a -6 against visual awareness when standing still and -5 when moving. Cost is 6000eb standard and 8000 with IR baffling. Available only to military. (Ghost in the Shell)

Orc suits can monitor acoustic signatures, or A/S, giving them an awareness bonus of plus +2. The system is also designed to monitor their comrades for the sound of breaking armor, giving them a better teamwork ratio in stealth operations.

The suit also boosts the BOD and MA of whoever is wearing it with a bonus of +4 each. 25,000eb these suits are available only to the police and military. (Appleseed)
