Ultra Deep-Sea Power Armor


Description

The Ultra is designed to function as an all-environment power armor suit for combat underwater, in the air and on land. Its design was inspired by the Coalition States' SAMAS, although it has a very different appearance and is much heavier and slower in the air.

The armor can survive water pressure up to two miles (3.2 km) deep. it is propelled through the water by four large jet thrusters built into a detachable, modular backpack. Smaller directional jets provide greater mobility. it also has windows for limited flight and a battery of weapons. Underwater, the TXD-100 Ultra is a walking weapon with immense versatility. On land it can function as a strong support unit or front-line infantry trooper. it is especially effective against Gurgoyles, slow moving armored vehicles and monsters. However, it is comparatively slow and clumsy out of water, even when the huge jet thrusters are removed.
