Power Armour MKI by ColgateFIM Power Armour MKI by ColgateFIM
Enclave Soldier~ Updated my armour design.

Sketch and Coloured sketch

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Incoming TL;DR

---------------------------------------------------------------------

"The Enclave power armour is a partially sealed suit of non-porous ballistic cloth that provides kinetic and environmental protection, reinforced by lightweight composite ceramic plates in areas that either don't need to flex or require additional coverage, such as the chest and head. When the armor is hit by directed energy weapons, the plates boil away or ablate rather than burning the wearer.

The helmet provides housing for the suits microframe computer. This computer assist the wearer with a number of things. It helps control the scorpion tail attatchment, it provides a friend-or-foe recognition system as well as giving you information on weather conditions and other useful data for increased accuracy.

The last level of defence is a completely sealed suit with exception for the head of black kevlar weave, although this is intended more for shrapnel than actual small arms fire. Also the wires from the microframe computer goes through this suit to other locations inside the armour, mainly the scorpion tail attatchment.

The hindlegs are only protected by military grade kevlar weave, which does NOT stop small arms fire, it is intended for shrapnel. This design was created with logic in mind, why the hindlegs are not as armoured as the front of the pony. The rear legs are not conventionally in the line of fire why more emphasis can be put on frontal armour to save weight and maintain an aerodynamic design.

Iīm confident that the rotors controlling the tail could pull it free from most flesh
