VI. Armament:

The pod is equipped with the following manipulators:

VII. Armor:

Full nuclear and chemical protection, immunity from hand fired solids and energy beams, shrapnel and other fragments. This system is designed to enter areas littered with debris that might be capable of piercing lesser armored craft. Limited protection from heavier weaponry, adequate up to 20mm autocannon shells or equivalent.

VIII. Development:

This utility pod saw extensive use during the construction of the Oberth-class destroyers and ARMD-class space platforms by providing construction workers a more protected environment as well as a more capable manipulative system than an EVA suit. These pods continued to see use by finished vessels to provide exterior maintenance and repairs during operations.
