Re: CA-Xa2 - Coalition Experimental Psi-Armor

Just as a note: I'm assuming in choosing the CA-2 you were wanting the old style look? Unless you're talking backwater postings (like Arkansas) or ISS, the Army (even Psi-Battalion) uses the newer CA-3 or CA-4. CA-7 is what special forces use. I have the CS armory here in case you're curious.
