Once you've researched UFO Power Source, Personal Armour, and Elerium-115, you will have the ability to research the Power Suit. The power suit is a tremendous upgrade to the personal armour, providing double the protection value of the latter. Because of this increase in protection, it is not uncommon to survive multiple Heavy Plasma bolts to the chest, though this will often result in a badly wounded (but not dead) soldier.
In addition to its protection qualities, the power suit's enclosed environment renders the wearer immune not only to fire but also stun damage from standing in smoke.
