Personal Cloaking Field
The Personal Cloaking Field generates a warping effect that bends various wave forms. Effectively this means that the user is considerably less visible to radar, infra-red and visual sighting. The field is disabled temporarily if the user initiates combat. From: Apcocalypse Ufopaedia
An exotic device able to obscure a unit to visual detection and reduce the chance of weapon impact even from point-blank combat range. The cloak effect only works when held in the hand and is effective at hiding a unit to any entity further than (aproximately) ten cells.
This highly technical device can be manufactured with great effort but is not worthwhile since it will become common equipment.
It does not need to recharge and works immediately when placed into an agents hand. Only one is needed to establish the cloaking effect. The cloaking field will not become temporarily disabled when the user fires a weapon or when the user is hit, impacted with weapons fire, explosives etc. An unconscious unit will remain cloaked until dead.
