I’ve had the opportunity to see Vornskr Pack in actions on several occasions and am always impressed with the condition and quality of their field armor. While nothing fancy or unusual, it appears that the armor they wear has been stripped down to it’s very essence-enough to get the job done without cumbersome or unnecessary gear.
While the suit itself offers moderate protection, I have to say that the fact that the face and arms are generally unprotected is a concern, as the loss of either would seriously impair a soldier’s ability to function.
Designed and produced in-house by the New Republic, who used to contract the work out, the Vornskr Pack Armor is specific to the unit, built and produced to the specifications of former team leader, Commander Perfo Kryll. When I spoke with Kryll and inquired about the lack of Face, arm and upper thigh protection, he explained that Vornskr Pack is called upon to be mobile and move quickly if need be, and that sometimes heavy armor merely gets in the way and slows a soldier down.
“Seeking cover is a soldier’s best defense against getting shot,” he said, reminding me that Vornskr Pack is not your standard “Rank and File” New Republic soldiers. In fact, some of them don’t even wear the standard issue armor for the unit. Their scout and medic, Vhari Sa’Mondaley is one such soldier who chooses to wear her own armor into combat, as is their armorer and heavy weapons specialist, “Double Zero.” Hopefully I will be able to connect with these individuals in the future to see if I may analyze their armor of choice.
In summary, the Vornskr Pack armor isn’t flashy, may have some flaws but in the end is exactly what is necessary to get the job done-much like the unit itself.
