Smithe Corporation Type 84 Armored Survival Pack

      Although Smithe Corporation focuses on the private/civil sector of product manufacturing, Smithe Corp. does undertake a handful of military and paramilitary contracts. Perhaps their most prolific and common are the Armored Survival Packs, that have been produced since the mid-80s. Three variations have been produced to date. The first possessed a far more basic first aid kit than the second, lacking the carefully developed bandages intended to stave away infections and to treat burns as well as the potions. The second saw the introduction of the more advanced first aid kit. The third introduced a redesign of the survival pack's case to omit the strap and buckles to be replaced with magnetic clasps to attach directly to a suit of Republican Industries Type 86 Yoroi Environmental Body Armor. The Type 84-I and Type 84-II are both presently in production with the first produced for export and commercial sale while the second is produced exclusively for New Haven's military.

      Since the introduction of the initial Type 84 Armored Survival Pack, Northern Gun and Naruni Enterprises have both introduced their own versions. While Naruni's version is illegal in New Haven, both Naruni's and Smithe Corp's are illegal in the Coalition States and Whykin.

    Market Cost: New Haven's military variety would cost 137,000 if marketed, but due to the inclusion of the potions produced by the BWMG for the use of troops in the service of New Haven, Smithe Corporation is not permitted to sell this version. The Type 84-I, which lacks these potions, is marketed at a cost of 115,000 credits. Given that its cost far exceeds its competetors, it is seldom purchased in areas where types like the NG-S2 is available by all but the most serious adventurers concerned with safety and survivability. The commercial variety has fair availability in New Haven, Water Point Preserve, New Hope, and The Colorado Baronies. It has poor availability in the Pecos region, Lazlo and New Lazlo.
