Heavy Battle Armour
An (R) next to the price means the item is restricted and cannot be bought on the open market, in which case the price listed is the closest average black market price.
From Age of Rebellion
Imperial heavy troopers, wealthy or well-equipped Rebel cells, and even some combat droids are equipped with heavy battle armor. Produced by a number of galactic corporations, heavy battle armor is a full suit of reinforced plastoid or ceramic armor that is designed to provide complete protection from small arms fire, splinters, shrapnel, and even some light support weapons. In practice, however, heavy battle armor typically protects only against a few of the lighter kinds of blasters and most slugthrowers, while being exceedingly bulky, heavy, hot, and restricting. Despite its shortcomings, heavy battle armor does provide adequate protection for infantry and can usually be sealed up to act as a makeshift spacesuit or hazardous environment suit.
From Edge of the Empire
Certain heavy stormtroopers, bounty hunters, and even droids are fitted with heavy armor. Ostensibly, heavy armor protects against most normal blaster shots, but in the arms race of offense versus defense, the offensive power of a good blaster is still far ahead of most anything a humanoid can wear.
Heavy battle armor can be sealed and provide the same benefits as full-body laminate armor as above, or it can take the form of a heavy vest and blast helmet.
