Alternity - Tides of War
The IOES-512B is the AFs solution to the growing problem of hardened surface to orbit defenses that are not reliably disrupted by orbital kinetic assaults. Originally coined as Meteor Suits, they are comprised of heavy Alean(Mechalus) Durimetal plating in a pressurized and climate controlled suit that allow the wearers to survive in space despite extreme temperatures and debris. Using Fra’al technology, they were able to incorporate an energy shield that sheaths the entire suit, absorbing and dispersing radiation and the harsh effects of friction during atmospheric entry. The individual would maintain their velocity until nearly reaching the surface, making them incredibly difficult to target, at the moment before impact the suits would fire a burst of gravitonic energy neutralizing most of their velocity instantly.
