“Worn by both the Crimson Dragoon troops and Black Ghost counterinsurgency squads during the Great War, Chinese Stealth Armor relies on light modulation technology to render its wearer virtually invisible.”— Store description
Chinese stealth armor was used during the Chinese invasion of Alaska and was the Chinese solution to invasion by U.S. forces in power armor. It was available to elite Chinese Crimson Dragoon troops as well as the Black Ghost counter-insurgency/terror units before and during the Great War.
The armor is a form-fitting armored jumpsuit, with stealth camouflage system embedded. It generates a modulating field that transmits the reflected light from one side of an object to the other, making a person much harder to notice (but not completely invisible). The technology was the basis for the unstable "Stealth Boy" wrist units developed in the U.S. It provides 60 ballistic defense.
This armor can be modified with ballistic weave, and has several different levels of upgrades depending on the ranks in the Armorer perk.
Strafing (holding W+A or W+D at the same time) with the armor causes no AP to be used when the stealth field is active.[verified]
Sometimes storing the armor in a container for a long time may cause it to lose the stealth field effect. A way to solve this is to wear the armor, drop it, save the game, reload, and then pick it up from the ground. Once put on, the stealth field should work normally.[verification overdue]
Many players may still be unable upgrade the armor if they have downloaded the creation before the update. Uninstalling and then reinstalling the creation should fix this.[verification overdue]
