Unpowered exoskeletal suit, surrounded by a carapace of multiple-layered synthetic armor. Inexpensive when compared to battle dress, combat armor provides comparable protection.
The TL 11 version dampens heat signature by the use of a "chill can" inserted into the cooling system, in the same manner as the combat environment suit . At TL 12, a chameleon option becomes available, as per battle dress. Most options available for battle dress are available for combat armor; for instance, integral communications equipment is common.
Combat armor is strictly military and not available on the open market; it is issued to high-tech troop units and elite mercenary battalions.
