ORBITAL-class Mjolnir is a variant of the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor [GEN2] manufactured by Naphtali Contractor Corporation.[2]

Overview[edit]

The helmet includes a Buffalo A-29 comm suite, which works flawlessly with the ad-hoc and anarchic telecommunication networks found in many colonies.[3] Some models of the helmet have the "Mark of the Breaker" skull emblazoned on the visor.[1]

The suit has momentum-governing collar mounts,[1] a valence-fading blast shield, L4-0 braced generators, and tow-grip isolation packs for quick yet stable mobility in zero-g settings.[4]

Development history[edit]

Developed by the Naphtali Contractor Corporation, the Orbital variant was tested and was the first to survive the Buffalo Breaker Yards testing site. This granted some models of the helmet a distinct skull emblem, known as the "Mark of the Breaker", on the visor.[1]

The suit is a modified variant following the same production lines as the EVA-class Mjolnir, though it was developed specifically for orbital and suborbital combat, where conditions similar to space often converge with harsh atmosphere and gravity-borne challenges.[1]

It was also field-tested during the battles in the skyhooks and space elevators on Earth and Luna during the Battle of Earth.[5] This test was a success, leading to the Orbital-class armor's adoption by Spartan-IVs.[1]

Usage[edit]

Adoption of this set has not overtaken the EVA variant, although War Games has repeatedly proven the Orbital armor's viability.[1]

Patrolling Spartans equipped with ORBITAL-class Mjolnir armor are a common sight near Earth's orbital tethers and military space stations.[3]
