Although the early heavy infantry armour fielded by the Soviets was both effective and functional, it was clear there was room to improve the design. Initial trials to convert the existing design to a more anti-infantry role were of limited worth and a new suit was commissioned to take advantage of increased understanding of the other nations’ Rift-tech advances. The Soviet Heavy Infantry Mk II suits benefit from more power assisted movement, heavier armour, and a broader range of weaponry, making them far more effective than the earlier suits. Production rates are not yet satisfactory and currently only the elite Guards units are receiving limited numbers, to spearhead shock assault formations.
In Konflikt 47, Mk II Heavy Armour confers the Tough, Slow and resilient special rules. Armed with assault rifles, this is a hardy unit that will prove difficult to dislodge from an objective.
