All powered armor allows simultaneous use of all integrated features in a single action turn including moving & firing of 1 hand-held and all integrated weapons.

Power armor and loaded Atomic Cell(s) are checked for malfunction upon startup and every 4 hours of operation. Power armor condition and cells condition stacks. Example: a poor quality power armor suit + 2 good quality cells fails on 1-2=suit failed; 3-4=cell #1 failed; 5-6=cell #2 failed. Power armor suits require a full complement of working cells in order to function. Failed and immobile or unpowered suits allow manual emergency egress by the wearer in 1AT, but this always results in ‘broken’ suit condition, if it wasn’t already broken.

Ingress/Egress time is 3 minutes (1 minute with POWER ARMOR skill).



Eagle Clan possesses a number of functioning ‘Inertia Power Armor’ suits, handed down from the original ancestors who arrived at Vault 57 during the Proxy Wars 130 years ago.
