Power Armor Countdown #6!
Clan Elemental Armor. Those suckers in the Inner Sphere never saw these bad boys coming. Hailing from BattleTech, one of my Top Five SciFi Franchises of all time, the Clan Elemental has it all. It can jump great distances on jump jets. It increases the speed and strength of its already genetically enhanced warrior. It carries a 'Mech scale small laser, SMG, battle claw, AND a two shot missile launcher. It has onboard medical systems to treat wounds and keep the Elemental in the fight past what should be possible by mortal men. It can operate in any environment.
Now, BattleTech is my roots. I could have made this whole countdown variations of armor from Battletech, but I have only included the Elemental. Why, you ask? Because, of all the BT armors, it is the best, most original, most iconic, and truly worthy of such a high place finish.
