The EX-Gear is a combat exoskeleton system currently being developed by Kinova Unlimited, a "skunkworks" division of Mortia for the UCR military as a successor for various armor systems currently in use.
EX-Gear Models and VariantsEdit
EX Gear EG-01MEditThe EX Gear EG-01M is a flight capable light exoskeleton and the first model of the EX-Gear series developed by Kinova Unlimited in early 2576 as new anti-g equipment for newer model Variable Fighters currently under development and as a multipurpose power suit. Kinova created the EG-01M with the goal of increasing pilot protection and survivability when escaping by improving the interface of a VF or Destroid. The 01M was produced in small numbers for testing and was succeded by the EGP-03/05.
EX Gear EGP-03/05EditFirst developed in 2577 and deployed with the military forces of the UCR's homeland in early 2578 and some groups in the UCR's Milky Way and Andromeda territories, the EGP-03/05 improved in areas where the EG-01M lacked. These improvements include;
- Installation of an energy shielding system.
- Armor protection to areas the EG-01M lacked such as;
- Upper thighs.
- Upper arms.
- Carbon infused armor.
- DNA Lock.
- S-11 Mine.
- Data-Link 20 System.
- Increased engine power by 20%.
- Capable of reaching in atmosphere flight speed of 550km/h.
- ARS Infantry type BLADE System and Augmented reaction mode.
- Noise reduction via noise damping parts in thruster units, swivel joints, and gliding wheels.
- Enhanced optical and acoustic sensors.
The production variant, the EGP-03/05M1, was fully adopted into all services of the UCR Military in 2580 as a standard combat power armor system along side the ARS Infantry, phasing out older combat BDUs and armor systems. The 03/05M1 has been put forward as a standard power armor for the NUNS Shock Trooper Corps.
The PS/ML-21 is a demilitarized variant of the EG-01M sold in the civilian market for a fraction of the cost of the 05M1 model. Derivatives of the ML-21 are used by construction companies who operate in space, law enforcement and security agencies, and flight schools.
