The Sentinel dropsuit is a second-generation solution designed to withstand concentrated small arms fire and protect the wearer from the concussive, thermal, and impact forces of low-grade explosives. Additionally, its power-assisted exoskeleton facilitates usage of the heaviest caliber personal weapons.
Based upon a deep-core construction exoskeleton, the Minmatar Sentinel is capable of withstanding some of the harshest conditions in the galaxy. Hardened shield systems and armor modifications improve its combat durability, while the various op-assist mechanisms used to augment movement make it second only to the Minmatars own Commando variant in terms of overall speed and mobility.
Heavy dropsuits lack the mobility of lighter suits, but this trade-off results in a defensive system that defies standard infantry conventions. No other classification of personal armor can claim to be able to stand toe-to-toe with enemy vehicles and survive.
