A standard-issue shock shield is given to every Elite Task Force soldier assigned to riot duty. Before activation, it is a black metal tube strapped to the wearer’s forearm. Once activated, a thin oval frame springs from the tube. A micro-shock generator creates an impenetrable barrier of shock energy within the metal frame.
The shield is recommended for all potential riot situations, up to and including slums incursions, especially when the presence of blackmarket shock tech weaponry is anticipated.
