ZENTRAEDI FLIGHT SUIT: Worn by Zentraedi female power armor and fighter pod pilots, the Zentraedi flight suit is not meant to be worn as combat armor. Rather the flight suit was designed to provide environmental protection for the wearer in space based operations. Under normal conditions the pilot hooks himself into the primary environmental supplies of the mecha; however, if necessary the flight suit has an independent oxygen capable of maintaining its wearer for five hours.
The outer layers of the flight suit is covered by a Kevlar composite which provides limited anti-ballistic protection. Any weapon of greater than 10mm will puncher through the flight suit and damage the wearer.

STANDARD EQUIPMENT FOR ZENTRAEDI FLIGHT SUIT
ZENTRAEDI LIGHT BATTLE ARMOR: Body armor is standard issue for all Zentraedi warriors. First introduced in 1490, the Light Battle Armor generally used for non-combat roles such as environmental suits for shuttle pilots. The suit is composed of a plastic ceramic composite designed to protect the wearer from micro-meteorites and small arms fire and is immune to all projectiles less than 13mm; however, most anti-mecha weaponry can easily inflect damage on the wearer.
In addition to the protection that the armor provides, it also functions as a full environmental suit with a five hour oxygen supply. A single Z'tryei micro-thruster is mounted on the rear of the armor capable of providing 10 kN of thrust.

STANDARD EQUIPMENT FOR HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT SUIT
ZENTRAEDI HEAVY ARMOR: The Heavy Body Armor is issued for all pilots of Battlepods and power armor. The heavy armor provides almost as much protection as the standard Regult Tactical Battlepod and as such functions as the "reinforced pilots compartment". The suit is composed of a plastic ceramic composite designed to protect the wearer from micro-meteorites and small arms fire and is immune to all projectiles less than 18mm; however, most anti-mecha weaponry can easily inflect damage on the wearer.
In addition to the protection that the armor provides, it also functions as a full environmental suit with a ten hour oxygen supply. A single Z'tryei micro-thruster is mounted on the rear of the armor capable of providing 10 kN of thrust.

STANDARD EQUIPMENT FOR ZENTRAEDI HEAVY ARMOR
IC-AR ZENTRAEDI ASSAULT RIFLE: First introduced in 1525, the IC-AR is the standard rifle given to all Zentraedi warriors. The IC-AR was designed to be easily maintained and operated. The weapon fires 39.6mm HESH shells at a rate of 300 rounds per minute with 200 rounds stored internally. The IC-AR proved to be an extremely durable weapon with a low occurrence of jamming.
IC-SH (ZENTRAEDI SHOTGUN): First introduced in 1689, the IC-SH is a Zentraedi shotgun designed to counter massed Invid wave attacks. Each cartridge fires lead shot with a radius of 2.12 cm that is capable of disabling a single Invid Enforcer. The weapon was non successful as designers had hoped because of the limited range and ammunition supply and as a result the IC-AR continued to be the standard personal weapon for Zentraedi.
KARATSZON QUILLO-169 (also known as PL-7): Although normally used in conjunction with the Male Power Armor, the Karatszon Quillo-169 (given the RDF designation of PL-7) can be used by soldiers in times of dire need. The Karatszon Quillo-169 fires 7 MJ short bursts of energy up to 20 times per minute. The weapon is powered by an internal clip which provides enough energy for 30 short bursts.
KARATSZON QUILLO MODEL-229 DEFENSE LASER: The model 229 was designed to be quickly mounted on vehicle hard points or as a light weapon for static emplacements. The weapon consisted of two high powered Model-229 lasers capable of firing up to 200 bursts per minute out to an effective range of 2 km. The weapon is powered by thirty 15 MJ internal fuel cells, which are ejected from the weapon once depleted.
ZENTRAEDI MODEL 1501 ROCKET LAUNCHER: The model 1501 rocket launcher was designed to air defense for non-mechanized ground based Zentraedi units. The model 1501 is armed with a single MPA-3 missile capable of destroying several Invid Armor Scouts out to a maximum effective range of 35 km. The weapon system was not widely used as most of the Zentraedi battles with Invid forces came while they were piloting their mecha.
