Cybernetic armor was high-impact armor used by Guavian security soldiers that incorporated segmented gauntlets, flexible armor shin guards, ablative gorget armor, an ammunition pouch, and a utility belt over a red and black jumpsuit. Designed to be worn by cybernetically-enhanced humans, they communicated via high frequency data streams transmitted from the central sensor and broadcasting dish in their faceplates. An arterial chemical shunt worn on the leg acts as a second heart, injecting a secret mixture of chemicals that boost a Guavian's speed and aggressiveness. Cybernetic armor made its user immune to a blaster's stun setting and allowed them to survive in a vacuum and underwater for up to ten minutes. Guavian security soldiers equipped with micro-grenade launchers wore a heavy variant of the armor that offered more protection.
Behind the scenesEdit
Cybernetic armor first appeared in the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. The design of the armor was based on concept art originally created for the "Jedi Killer," the character who eventually became Kylo Ren.
