Compatible with MJOLNIR (GEN2)
Despite its origin, the shoulder pauldrons are compatible with other armor sets.
Discovery and research
Discovered aboard a derelict freighter of unknown origin at Lacaille 9352, the armor has no known manufacturer or intended user. The UNSC Navy's Office of Naval Intelligence continues to probe the recovered suits in an attempt to unlock what appears to be several levels of restricted functionality. SHINOBI's core systems remain cryptic "black boxes" to analysts, though ONI was successful in integrating the SHINOBI helmet with standard GEN2 Mjolnir techsuits and Spartan neural interfaces. Though aware of the inherent risks involved, ONI has authorized limited testing of the SHINOBI armor for a select few classified Spartan-IV operatives.
