“You should be used to seeing women in tights. This is the Star Army of Yamatai after all!” –Kurohoshi Masako
The original female bodysuit uniform of the Star Army of Yamatai consisted of mesh stockings for the legs, and for the torso, worn under a stretchy bodysuit that opened with a zipper along the front (standard) or on the back (depending upon the style). The bodysuit had cutouts and belts on the thighs, for attaching clips for small equipment like knives, grenades, ammo pouches, and communicators.
Colored panels on the chest and and shoulder pads on the bodysuit showed the occupational area of the soldier wearing the uniform. The bodysuit uniform was worn with a rank pin, a belt (with a pistol and pistol holster), boots, and when needed, gloves.
The main complaint about this style of uniform was that, in order to use the bathroom, the bodysuit had to be taken almost entirely off so the tights could be pulled down, making it somewhat inconvenient.
The uniforms and accessories for this uniform were manufactured across the empire and were often inconsistent in the color and shade, resulting in various blues and in boots and gloves in white, gray, black, and brown. The official standard issue specification called for gray boots, belts, and gloves; however, the boots and gloves were often white. Additionally the front zipper was sometimes found on the back instead.
In YE 33, the Star Army reauthorized the bodysuit for wear again, due to wartime supply shortages, an influx of recovered older Nekovalkyrja from the lost Second Draconian Fleets, and because bodysuits were easily worn inside environmental suits.
