they have a basic kevlar for someone who doesn't need armor (tankers, reaver/galaxy pilots and such) and wants to use the cert for something else, but i can't imagine many people who will fight without an exo-suit or MAX.

oh ok so one is only kinda like uniform?
and by the way, the secondary color of the vanu armor is not black but this strange green. Only the kevlar parts and stuff is black. Armorplates are purple or green.

I think it looks kind of Metroid Primish.

Also, are you sure it's a Max? I think that is just the Vanu heavy armor, which is actually smaller than the max. Or am I crazy-wrong again?

Confirmation of the above: Vanu colors are purple and a tealish-green. As Vanu gain in rank, their armor gets more of that tealish color. It actually looks pretty amazing. Very sea-shellish colors.

Too bad, black and purple would have been cool and unfair.

There isnt a ton known about the armors, other than you originally spawn with a default "light armor" Additionally players will be able to certify in several other armor types. Below is a list of the known armors.

Infiltration Suit
Agile Exo-Suit
Reinforced Exo-Suit
MAX or "Heavy" Armor
There ya go! Oh and Infiltration Suit = Stealth Suit, Reinforced Exo-Suit = Medium Armor.

Considering the look of the TR MAX and the NC MAX I don't think that is the Vanu MAX.

Those are links^^

It's not our fault we don't make our MAX look fat and ugly. Instead we got a cool looking one with a gangsta gun thingie!

I tought it whent like this
4 armors for each sex

The one you spawn whit, standard
1 infiltrator, cloaking
1 agile/fast
1 Medium

and the MAX armor thats unisex

that makes 5 armors whit 4 that you need certificats for... i kinda doubt we'll need a cert for the standard armor altho spawning naked has it's pro's

In every screenshot I've seen, I have only seen 4 armors.

There are 3 exo-suits:
1)Agile/light
2)Stealth
3)Reinforced/Medium

These will probably be identical between the 3 empires.

Each Empire also has its own powered-armor/MAX(anyone know what it is an acronym for?)
Terran Republic: Glitterboys that brace into the ground(from RIFTs)
New Conglomerage: Shielded BFG
Vanu Sovereignty: Tribes Myrmidon

Sorry Sand but you're wrong.... Look at some recent pics... follow the link on the official PS website and look at the empire specific websites. Can clearly see 5 types of armor total and they differ from empire to empire.
