PAS-05E Powered Assault Suit by Louisvillian PAS-05E Powered Assault Suit by Louisvillian
The PAS-05E Dingo-class Powered Assault Suit.
The larger and more powerful counterpart to the Powered Combat Suit, the PAS is built more along the lines of older powered armours, with conventional electric motors and myomer bundles to enhance strength and speed rather than a reactive fluid layer. With layers of heavy armour integrated to the suit, that added strength is necessary.
While more powerful than the PCS, the Dingo suit is bulkier, though not quite as bulky as vintage Imperial powered armours; this limits its tactical availability to open field engagements, space combat, or direct assaults of fortified positions. However, it is able to carry and use weapons normal soldiers in the PCS would not be able to- the example in the picture is an 18.1mm automatic rifle. Other weapons include a 13mm Gauss Rifle, a Free Electron Laser, a Linear Plasma Projector Rifle, a 7.92mm rotary machine-gun, or an 105mm Recoilless Rifle. In addition to standard infantry weapons.
Even so, its bulkiness has prevented its mass adoption by the Army, and is used more for special forces and Waffen-SG troops.

It looks interesting but, with some refinements, it would look great!

Try to make it with an higher definition, with more poligons and a Back Perspective of it...
This Base Form is good to me, only few changes are worthy to be done: it needs to be a little less bulky; the Helmet should grant a wider Field of View; it needs higher Performances.
Let me know what you decide to do.

you realise I did this in MS Paint, right? I can't really have more polygons or a rear perspective, especially not with another reference drawing.
Secondly, the entire thing about this armour is that it IS a bulkier armour suit. The whole point is that it is, compared to the PS-04, the bulkier, but hardier armoured suit.

Its not by chance based on the Rifts/pre-rifts French Lafayette Power Armor?

It is. The pre-Rifts stuff was a big inspiration in some vehicle designs, as well.

Ah I knew it. I like the PA-8 and the USA-G15 MARS a bit better from the look. But thats just personal taste.
