Aye, everything marked AT-Reid-5 (Assault Tactical-Reid(a corporation) mk. 5) IS part of the shielding equipment.
Further info Brevil noticed during his brief study of the equipment:
By running diagnostics (via the on belt flip panel computer)
- The shielding of the head will be reduced due to no head width markers (broken ear rings).
- Hands (below wrists) and feet (below ankles) are not protected.
- The shielding is powerful, but the battery is old and must be recharged often. The recharging is slow.
- Additional hardware and software modules can be installed. These are NOT in place now, and will allow for such things as cloaking (invisibility), camouflage (simulating terrain patterns), radiation protection, biohazard protection, automatic detoxification of the host, air supply, G effect reduction, and so on. On unmodified personal shields only one of the systems may be active at once.
