Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Scum and Villainy
Upgrade Type: Armor Upgrade
Upgrade Point Cost: 2
Much like the Corellian Powersuit, other Armors can be Upgraded to include a Powered Exoskeleton that enhances the physical strength of the wearer. Because of the weight and energy required, only a suit of Medium Armor or Heavy Armor can have the Powered Exoskeleton Upgrade.
A Powered Exoskeleton operates for 20 rounds on a standard Energy Cell. (Suits of Armor with a Powered Exoskeleton commonly have the Internal Generator Upgrade.) Turning a Powered Exoskeleton on or off is a Swift Action. When active, the Powered Exoskeleton gives the wearer a +2 Equipment bonus to their Strength score. A Powered Exoskeleton adds 5 kg to the weight of the Armor.
