The Guardian Marine Armor, also known as the Guardian M Armor, is a smaller, more compact version of the Guardian Trooper Armor. As the armor was designed to be used by security and police forces, primarily within ships, facilities or near by.
The compact frame allows security forces to get around tighter areas faster. The armor retains the integrated powered servos as the Trooper version, but tuned to give the wearer near super human speed, jumping and strength, allowing security to manage even the strongest or fastest of hostiles.
This is done with out sacrificing any protection, and remains as durable as the Guardian Trooper Armor.
Only the uniquely made armors, by masters, in the galaxy rival the quality and defensive capability of this armor. Making the fact that it is mass produced all that more incredible. As a product of Evolve and the Sovereign Forge the monetary costs of crafting the armor is nonexistent.
The body suit of the armor is crafted from nano carbon tubes with padding, flexible and comfortable it provides excellent agility and freedom of movement while providing excellent protection, more so then other typical mass produced armor. The body suit can also be sealed against gas, chemical, vacuum and some types of radiation. If that wasn't enough the nano carbon tubes are engineered to harden even further when a electrical current is applied, providing even greater protection, though this can hamper movement. In the end the Body suit it self is an armor all its own.
The Guardian M makes heavier use of nano carbon in place of the complex armor plates, using many of the same elements to give it its resistance to blaster and slug projectiles.
The armor plates are a composite of dense metals, heat resistant ceramics and shock absorbing plastics/gels. The armor can sustain several direct hits before losing durability.
The Personal Ray Shields are programmed to only active when a incoming direct hit is detected. This saves power on the fusion battery while also keeping the generator cool and keeps it from being damage through over use. The shield can be set to be on constantly but this drains the Fusion Battery faster and can wear down the generator. It can also be set to filter out more dangerous radiation or even extend further out from just the armor's body.
The Shields can only protect the used from energy/plasma based weapons. Slug or particle weapons may be slightly hampered but the effect is so minimal that its hardly worth mentioning.
As the users of this armor aren't typically expected to wander far from their ships or facilities, the E.O.G equipment hard points were reduced to only environmental ones, allowing the armor to be used in many extreme environments.
