Cybernetic armor[3] was high-impact armor used by Guavian security soldiers[1] that incorporated segmented gauntlets,[4] flexible armor shin guards,[1] ablative[4] gorget armor, an ammunition pouch,[1] and a utility belt[4] over a red and black jumpsuit.[2] Designed to be worn by cybernetically-enhanced humans, they communicated[1] via high frequency data streams[4] transmitted from the central sensor and broadcasting dish in their faceplates.[1] An arterial chemical shunt[4] worn on the leg acted as a second heart, injecting a secret mixture of chemicals that boost a Guavian's speed and aggressiveness.[1] 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.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Cybernetic armor first appeared in the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.[5] The design of the armor was based on concept art originally created for the "Jedi Killer," the character who eventually became Kylo Ren.[6]
