KI Variable Purpose Armor

The KI Variable Purpose Armor is a design based originally off of the 
Cyclone (TM) designs by the Robotech Expeditionary Force (TM).  These 
power armors were ideal for the purposes of King Industries who could 
make a low budget suit and have attachments for any additional weapon 
systems.  The protoculture (TM) engine was replaced with an anti-
matter power source for more energy over a longer period of time.  
However, the elimination of the protoculture system, which was too 
difficult to reproduce in the KI labs as they lacked significant 
quantities of protoculture, drastically reduced the maneuverability 
and response times of the suit.  It wasn't until that the neural 
connectors located in the helmet were introduced to the suit that the 
project really got off the ground.  Get off the ground it did as the 
original motorbike of the unit was replaced with a specially desined 
hovercycle.  Also with the use of contragravity support, the speed of 
the unit was increased drastically.  The molecularly bonded, 
lightweight polymer armor allowed for greater M.D. protection.  The 
old laser-resiliant coating was stripped away and replaced with a 
radar absorbant material that makes the suit effectively and 
passively invisible to radar, sonar, gravometric sensors, heat 
detectors, and infra-red/thermal imaging.  Not only that, but the 
integral weapon systems were updated to KI mini-missiles launchers 
and supported by wrist mounted laser blasters that doubled as cutting 
tools.  There was also two shoulder mounted plasma guns that could 
fire while the suit was in hovercycle mode.  Then all the weapon 
attachment systems were micronized even more, updated, or had new 
ones invented.  The suit also was designed to fit snugly attached to 
the KI Standard Body Armor.  Such an attachment meant that the suit 
could have no special technological additions, and magical additions 
could not carry over to the power armor.  The few exceptions were
those that are so small or on the inside of the suit that their 
presence would effectively be negligable.  What this also means is 
that any KI Standard Body Armor is interchangeable with any of the 
hovercycle units.  Despite all of this, the Variable Purpose Power 
Armor is the most versatile power armor unit known anywhere in the 
Megaverse (TM).

M.D.C. by Location (Hovercycle):
Headlights (2):  15
Cargo Boxes (3):  25
Windshield:  50
Maneuvering Engines (6):  100
Main Engine Package:  300
Main Body:  450


  Running:  150 mph
  Swimming:  10 mph
  Flying:  Stationary hover to 670 mph (Mach 1)in any direction!
  Hover Mode Flying:  Stationary hover to 1980 mph (Mach 3)
  Flying (Space):  2310 mph (Mach 3.5)
  Hover Mode Flying (Space):  4224 mph (Mach 6.4)
  Underwater Propulsion:  90 mph
  Hover Mode Underwater:  270 mph
  Leaping:  20 feet high, 40 feet across.  Double with a running 
    start or thruster assisted.  Triple with a running start and 
    thruster assisted.
  Note:  Remember that contragravity engines have no altitude limit 
    and can breach a planet's atmosphere.  The light power armor 
    though, would usually never exceed 8,000 feet for protection from 
    high speed high altitude winds.
  Note:  Destroying as many as three (3) maneuvering engines will not 
    affect the piloting of the robot or hovercycle.  However, if any 
    more than that reduce flying speeds and combat bonuses by half!
  Note:  Destroying the Primary Engine Package will take away all 
    flight capabilities of the suit.  The suit can still make 
    thruster-assisted leaps with the maneuvering jets, but no flight 
    and hovercycle mode is almost completely useless.
