The new body-armor is a compromise between the flexibility of our low-profile Fullerene uniforms, and the Odin suits popular with U.N.S. shock troops.
You said compromise. . . What are we losing in terms of flexibility?
Rigid design, for starters. I can't just cut fabric to fit, so the first batch of suits will pretty much only fit the humans.
So that's about a third of us covered. Not bad. What else?
You have to take off the helmet in order to pee.
