Armor -

The developers at Auto Assault return from the holidays in a giving mood. Today, they are giving us a look at the use of Armor in Auto Assault.


Throughout the history of warfare the technological development of better forms of protection and ways of survival always follows the development of new weapon systems and methods of destruction. For instance, one side develops a new weapon and after an initial period of adjustment, the opponent fields a way of protecting against it. The new weapon proliferates to all sides and eventually the protection does as well, so the cycle begins anew. In the Central Wastelands, little of this process has changed.

In the wild and very deadly battles in the wastelands, a chassis’ armor protection is one of the most vital elements of survival. Aside from the varied set of skills the driver may possess, the armor is the strongest, most dependable line of defense for a chassis. Properly maintained, chassis armor doesn’t lose its protective qualities after a short period of time, nor does it wear out. In fact, one can generally improve their armor generally by the use of gadgets or other enhancements, far beyond their original manufactured capability. Certain kinds of armor can even protect against particular forms of attack better than other armor types.

Armor comes in many forms and shapes; some types are common across all factions and races, but represent the most basic kinds of protection: steel welded plating, battle plastics, and so forth. Given their diversity, however, the three races have developed their own unique forms of protection. Human defensive systems usually consist of high-energy shielding concepts, a specialty amongst Humans. Biomeks derive their armor from nanotechnology and possess some of the most hardened yet amazingly light materials on the planet. Mutants use a variety of classic armor types infused with Blood to form a unique armor system, utilizing the capacities of Contamination to the fullest.
