MIlITECH M-9 CRYE BODY ARMOR- (SP: 15) This vest is slightly flexible and protects the torso of the wearer from most small arms fire, it is also highly modifiable due to the straps running across it, allowing it's loadout to be customized to the wearers exact needs. It features optional shoulder pads,optional belt brace for heavy loads, and additional aromr plates (SP:8 EV-2) can be added instead of equipment pouches.

GROIN ARMOR- (SP: 10) protects the soldiers groin, while somewhat uncomfortable, this is perhaps the most popular piece of armor among the soldiers, after all it protects the soldiers favorite peace of equipment.

NECK ARMOR- (SP: 10) an armor plate gorget that protects the wearers throat, won't do much against most bullets, but will some protection is better than none, and will prevent garrote attacks effectively.

MILITECH CRYE BALLISTIC HELMET- (SP: 18) The helmet itself is a simple, but highly sloped bucket. Militech has added a detachable high resolution video/audio recorder w/ 2 hours recording time, a detachable short range radio, and removable smart-optic shades with Smartlink, Anti-dazzle, UV, and Tele-optics. In addition to the smart-optic shades, the helmet has a flip down monacle atached directly to the camera equipped with Times Square, Image Enhancement, Thermograph, Tele-optics and GPS (allowing the soldier to actually utilize 2 different optic systems at once. This monacle is always in direct connection with the RTO, whose pack recieves and transmits GPS locations, messages from base, Satellite imagery (allwoing the soldier to have a top down view of his current location), or audio/vid from the rest of the team (allowing the monacle to display what his teammates are seeing). The U.S. Military is already looking to implement the features of this system into their own helmets. The helmet also features a removable flashlight, capable of emitting regular, Ultraviolet light or a laser, and a removable armored muzzle (SP:10) to protect the wearers face and acts as a gas mask, sealing around the smart-optic shades and the helmet. (The latest version has smaller non-detachable light and camera and is more streamlined)

A bit heavier armored than the version used by The United States, Militech has announced they will not sell these, even to military or government clients, until they have developed an even better version, allowing them to stay just a bit ahead of competition. Special Forces wear these suits when Stealth is of the utmost importance, and while wearing this armor a soldier is virtually invisible to visual detection. In addition to extra armor, the suit boasts comes with its own weapon holsters and equipment pouches so stealth is not lost due to being lightly armed. It also comes with a therm-optic camouflaged weapon bag, for rifles or other long weapons. Militech does sell the bag separately for 6000eb.
(Torso SP: 14 rating, no encumbrance penalty).

- Militech Pilots wear the same Flight suit as the US Armed Forces. It consists of a water/air tight g-suit, flexible torso and shoulder plates (kevlar wrapped steel plates woven into a flexible harness SP: 15 torso / SP: 10 shoulder) The only difference comes from Militechs brand new Flight Helmet, a superior version to the one they supply to the US. Although still in testing the new helmet features slightly better protection (SP:22), and even more optic options, Low Light, Thermograph, UV, Image Enhancement, Anti-Dazzle, Times Square Marquee,
Tele-Optics,Smartlink to Weapons, Surveillance, and Threat System (the pilot jacks into the helmet, which is then connected to the aircraft, this allows a buffer between the pilot and the interface in case of electronic attack of feedback), and advanced communications unit. The helmet also features a small hatch on the back that allows full cyber interface.

The ARM-7 combat exosuit uses the same Strength Enhancing power frame as the HAL-O5 suit. By eliminating the heavier armor in favor of a thinner shell, and not bothering to completely enclose the wearer, the ARM-7 suit can be worn over its users normal clothes and provide him with an even greater strength boost than the HAL-05 armor (+6) due to the suit having less base weight. This latest breed of exoskeleton is a far cry from the old bulky models of the past. And while the wearer may not be as protected as the heavier HALO-5 suit, his strength boost more than makes up for it.

(STR+5) Militech uses the same suit of HAL-05 Metal Gear it supplies to the United States Armed Forces. So any additional options are easy to install, such as thrust units for E.V. duty or swimmer options for underwater operations. As standard the suit is air tight, able to withstand depths of up to 500 feet, and is equipped with its own cooling/heating system with 4 hour battery. The helmet features full optics suite with (IR, Thermograph, Targeting Scope, Low Light, and Anti-Dazzle).


USING THE SAME TECHNOLOGIES AS THE MILITECH M-73 MIRAGE GEAR (see Chrome Book 2), THE M402 provides the wearer with ultimate stealth capabilities both below and above the waves.

MILITECH ARCTIC SURVIVAL GEAR 200eb- For use in cold weather situations, this suit provides maximum warmth while remaining lightweight and flexible.

MILITECH M-52AR - THE STANDARD ASSAULT RIFLE OF THE US MILITARY. This rifle is a bit heavier than the Arasaka Morita, and twice the ammo for the rifle, its failings come from being slightly less accurate and holding less ammo for the underbarrel shotgun/grenade launcher. Even though Militech was forced to use the Arasaka developed 10mm rifle round during the design stage for this weapon by the US Armed, they have become quite proud of the system, employing it in a multitude of configurations, including a SAW and Sniper version. While Militech is currently testing the CRM-6, the M-52AR and its incarnations is still the most commonly used assault rifle by Militech Troops. (See AUTUMN BLADE for more info)

Rif - +1 - N - C - 5D6/Varies (6mm caseless / 40mm gl) - 45 / 1 - 1/3/20 / 1 - VR
A new weapon undergoing testing by Militech, issued to their soldiers in the field, particularly in low conflict areas of South America. It fires 6mm caseless ammo from a 45 round bullpup configured magazine and features a removable 40mm grenade launcher. Unavailable for private sale at the moment, this weapon will fetch x3 the cost.

MILITECH RONIN- The Militech Ronin is still popular among many of the older Militech troops, as such it is still found, and commonly issued to low visibility, low conflict areas.
(see Blackhands Streetweapons for more info)

MILITECH RNA-12- Militechs latest handgun, they are hoping to win both the Standard and Special Forces Military Sidearm competitions for the United States Armed Forces with this one, it fires 12mm rounds, has an integral laser sight, and accepts a suppressor.
(see AUTUMN BLADE for more info)

- The sniper rifle version of the M-52 system

.(see AUTUMN BLADE for more info)

MILITECH M-58BAR- The squad support weapon built on the M-52 system.
(see AUTUMN BLADE for more info)

MEL - 0 - J - P - 2D6 - N/A - N/A - VR
A very tough and deadly trench knife, it performs as well as it intimidates.

MEL - 0 - J - P - 1D6 - N/A - N/A - VR
A standard boot knife, double edged and perfectly balanced.

MILITECH M71B3HB 12,675eb
HVY - -2 - N - P - 6D10 (12.7MM) - 50/100 - 15 -VR
Militechs premier man portable heavy machine gun, commonly used with either a gyro-stabilizer mount, or a tri-pod. Accepts either magazine or belt fed ammunition. This weapon is a true beast, and sets a new standard for the
heavy gunner role in the modern combat unit. Smart linking is available, however for those not wishing to go cyber, the weapon features a poor mans smart system, consisting of an optical site worn as head gear, providing low light, target acquirement, and target lock. To make use of this system, one must have the weapon plugged in and some training with this system is required as the smart system only covers one eye. This non-cyber smartlink can be used with any smartlink capable firearm, and adds a +1 to its accuracy, however the system was created for us with support machine guns, and is a built bulky to use with anything smaller. The system costs 400 eb, and is somewhat uncomfortable.

SMG - +1 - N - 3d6 (11mm caseless) - 35 - 1/3/15 - VR
Militechs latest submachine gun, very comfortable to fire, perfect for close quarters combat. The stock is extendable, but as you can see when it is retracted it rests seemlessly againt the weapon, in fat the weapon itself has very few exterior moving parts, and the only real snag points are on the sighting system. It also accepts a suppressor making it ideal for covert ops.

American combat troops have access to a wide variety of 25mm grenades and shotgun specialty rounds for the Morita assault rifles under barrel shotgun. (See Blackhands Streetweapons for more Info) 

HAND GRENADES- as above, the American combat soldier has access to virtually every type of hand grenade available. (See Blackhands Streetweapons for more Info)

LAW- the disposable anti-tank rocket launcher. (See Blackhands Streetweapons for more Info)

BARRETT M-90- One of the few personal weapons Militech subcontracts, often Snipers will take it upon themselves to electrothermally enhance this weapon. (See Blackhands Streetweapons for more Info)

MILITECH M-212 GRENADE LAUNCHER- 8 shot rotary drum fed 40mm grenade launcher. (See Blackhands Streetweapons for more Info)

MILITECH M-701 235eb
P - +2 - P - C - 2d6+3 (10mm) - 18 - 1 - R
Standard sidearm for military pilots and USAF personnel, featuring an integrated scope and laser sight. This is an extremely reliable handgun, it has to be, it is a pilots last desperate hope in the event of a crash. Militech mass produces this weapon solely for the United States Military. The weapon comes with detachable scope and stock, and a 35 round magazine is available.

- The current issue incarnation of the venerable Claymore type weapon. (See Blackhands Street Weapons for details)

FLM - +3 - N - R - SPECIAL (flame) - 1 1/2 min. - 1 1/2 min. - ST
The standard military flamethrower. Features a large armored fuel supply, self lighting pilot. Not popular with many soldiers, even the ones using it, because flame weapon damage is so horrifying.

Like Arasaka, Militech takes a much more proactive view of cybernetics, and are willing to pay fully for any necessary replacement, or pay half price for any elective procedure that involves Militech cybernetics or enhancements. Militech likes showing of their products whenever possible, and will replace limbs for the slightest injury if they can convince the soldier its necessary. There have been reports of some soldiers being bullied by officers into accepting non-necessary procedures, but these are covered up quickly.

Optionally you can choose to be a test subject for R&D. This means you get the latest cyber for free, however if it glitches, or there are other problems that occur in the field you can find yourself in serious trouble real fast. And absolutely any case which results in Full conversion automatically results in the soldier becoming a "volunteer" for R&d. Of course Militech promotes full cybernetic conversion, so wounds which would not normally require full conversion would still make a trooper eligible. Undergoing elective cybernetic replacement or full conversion on Militech's dime will however necessitate a contract where the recipient agrees to a term of no less than a year for every 5 thousand dollars spent on him, early resignation results in him owing the full amount remaining, and dismissal leaves the trooper owing the full cost of the cybernetics, or the option of removal of non-life threatening cyber, in the case of full conversion your Militech body will be replaced with a generic Takara body.

The one thing all Militech troopers recieve, mandatorily, is a Neural processor and chipware socket. With similiar chipware to that issued by the Military.
