The Shaktars possess a level of neuromuscular control over their braid-like cranial appendages that is astounding to humans. The Medusa System takes advantage of this, by picking up the voluntary motor signals and replicating the intended movements with its armoured tentacles attached to the Shaktar’s helmet.
The tentacles of the Attack Medusa System end in light blades, supplementing melee attacks and providing effective active blindside protection.
The ceramic blades are non-powered but use advanced construction techniques. Multiple blade designs are employed in the system for use in different manoeuvres and against a variety of foes.
Medusa Systems can be mounted on the helmet of any standard SLA Industries powered armour.
An Attack Medusa System costs 700c.
