1952's early prototype for infantry power suits!

Archaic Armor version:
A1 AP-only.
R1 LLOS
D1 Spillover damage has full effect, treats D results as Xs.
M2 Moves like a light tank. Defense doubled in towns.

Cobb calculator says 0.56 VP, but that's before the Spillover and D result nerfs.
Probably 0.33 VP? Means you get 18 per AU, but they die if you look at them funny.

They do indeed die if you look at them funny; the square-cube law militates against very small armoured vehicles, such that you can probably shoot holes in these with an ordinary 1950s military rifle. That's why they don't work as Archaic Armour, and obviously they aren't built with BPC because power suits exist.

Not criticising you - very interesting link.
