The DECIMATOR is the closest GEN2 armor variant to the MJOLNIR Mark VII and features a versatile energy shielding system that can be partially reshaped and sculpted. Like the Mark VII, DECIMATOR's physical architecture closely resembles the GEN1 Mjolnir B variant.
The DECIMATOR-class Mjolnir is an attempt by the Office of Naval Intelligence's Materials Group to re-engineer major improvements of the Mjolnir Mark VII prototypes into the second generation of the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor. The most successful of these efforts is the DECIMATOR armor's sophisticated energy shielding system.
