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).
An early version of this powered armor was first deployed in the savage urban battles around Tokyo Bay in 2589. It was discovered that highly trained soldiers wearing the new ‘powered’ armor could operate effectively within the utterly hostile ruins of Tokyo and Chiba Port. When expertly led and coordinated, men in these new suits stood a reasonable chance of defeating lone examples or even pairs of the deadly Japanese hunter-killer bots roaming the fortress-city of Nagoya Island.
