AVIATOR-class Mjolnir is a variant of the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor [GEN2] manufactured by Hannibal Weapon Systems.[2]

Overview[edit]

The Aviator helmet has a pilot-centric HUD integration.[1] This ultrawideband machine interlink gives Spartan-IV pilots unparalleled control over their aircraft.[3] The helmet also has a pressure-stabilized rebreather feed.[1]

The Aviator chest has a rigid collat to mitigate flight duress.[1] The Aviator suite also includes integral gravity compensators and hardware-accelerated flight combat interlinks.[1]

Development history[edit]

For decades the notion of specialized pilot armor for Spartans was thought redundant given MJOLNIR variants were already suited for the rigors. With the segregation of the Spartan-IVs into their own autonomous branch, the need for multiple intra-organizational disciplines materialized. This led to the Aviator variant's creation.[1]

Aviator was manufactured by Hannibal Weapon Systems and tested at WG/Facility 93-00/Kotka. It was build from the ground up and was designed for the operation of GA-TL1 Longswords, YSS-1000 Sabres, F-41 Broadswords, and B-65 Shortsword bombers.[1]

Usage[edit]

Spartan pilots meeting D3-17 regulations and higher are required to use this armor in Broadsword A/X attack fighter engagements operations to comply with standard asset security protocols and the Budgetary Retention Hearings of 2554.[4]

Because of the increased production of the vehicles the Aviator armor was made for, this variant has become popular among Spartans.[1]
