Starship Troopers: Terran AscendencyEdit

The Command Armor in the Starship Troopers: Terran Ascendancy game comes in 3 classes like other power armor. Command class armor is designed to enhance the abilities of commanding officers on the battlefield. It provides enhanced combat efficiency, excellent armor protection, plus onboard shield generator in later models. All classes of command armor feature optical systems that allow your platoon leaders to have greater perception of the battlefield. 1st and 2nd class Command suits are able to generate a power shield similar to those used in MI fortifications. This places a huge drain upon suits batteries but does provide an invulnerable shelter for the troopers under its protection. The power shield works beautifully in combination with an airstrike.
