Sangheili harness

The Storm harness is a variant of the Sangheili harness utilized by Sangheili Storm.

Description[edit]

The harness is simple, sleek, and efficient.[3] The helmet covers the full span of the face offering some protection to it. The harness also has form fitting greaves so they fit comfortably for the user.

Unlike the combat harness where the armor covers the whole body, the Storm armor often leaves its wearers arms exposed.[4]

The Storm harness is most often issued in blue, though green, red, white, and gold harnesses are sometimes used instead.[4]

Variants[edit]

Swords of Sanghelios variant[edit]

The Swords of Sanghelios variant is almost identical to the base variant except it can have the arms covered. The Sangheili Storm affiliated with the Swords of Sanghelios are colored crimson and ivory.[5]

Command-rank variant[edit]

The command-rank variant is identical to the base variant except it showcases the brilliant gold of the former Covenant empire.[6] It also has purple glyphs on it.

Development history[edit]

After spending several centuries creating parts for other Sangheili harnesses. Lodam Armory put together their efforts and made the Storm harness as its first fully in-house armor system alongside a Ranger derivative of the suit.[7]

The harness was used by the original Covenant during the Human-Covenant War, where it was used by Storm shock troopers keeping the peace on frontier worlds. It saw much more widespread adoption among both the resurgent Covenant and the Swords of Sanghelios after the war among less specialised forces,[1] and Covenant Storm troops were known to use less sophisticated armors than usual, for example without the arm guards.[8][5]

Lodam Armory also later created the Type-55 storm rifle, that carries the heritage of this suit with sharing its name.[7]
