Militech M96 "Ghostsuit" is a full-body coverall made of materials incorporating liquid crystal technology and a multi-faceted fiber-optic digitization system. Stealthier than a Sneaksuit, and smarter than Mirage Gear, the Ghostsuit actually blends into its surroundings. There are no preset restrictions; the Ghostsuit uses its computerized liquid crystal system to formulate the perfect camouflage for any situation. Just pull on the Ghostsuit, chip into the operator's interface via your plugs, don the visor and you're ready to vanish.

The suit's liquid crystal exterior is composed of a matrix of cameras and projectors which cover the body. Through the interface, the wearer chooses the angle to which their camouflage will apply (i.e., the front of the suit will look like what is behind you; the right side will look like what's on your left; the back of the suit will look like what you're laying on). Then the suit's on-board computer carries out the user's wish. The effect is that the wearer is "painted" with the chosen background.

Game notes: Movement causes a lag in processing time, resulting in a blur effect (the normal bonus is -4 to any observers's Awareness, but only -2 if you're moving — all bonuses increase by -1 / 1 0 meters of distance between the wearer and the observer). The Ghostsuit cannot make you invisible, rather, your background is mapped onto your body. Therefore, you cannot emulate more than one background at once, and you can't fool two or more observers who have different points of view. Militech recommends that for best results, press up against (or lie down on) a surface, flattening against it so that you do not disturb the contours of your background. In such a case, multiple observers may be fooled. The Ghostsuit has an EV of -1 and provides 10 SP of armor. For every two levels of protection the armor is damaged, there is a +1 penalty on the Awareness modifier. The hood features a set of eye-covering lenses for total protection. A Fully-enclosed SP 16 Combat Helmet (EV 0) can also be bought for an additional600eb.[1]
