Haruhi burst into the power armour bay and barely slowed as she zeroed in on her armour's rack; her feet skimmed above the decking as she glided along a gentle arc after she cut her CFS – frying someone as they got out of their armour this early in her tour wouldn't go down well, not that it ever would. Her armoured shoes impacted the deck a few meters away from her target, but momentum and a practised stance had her slide – with a small amount of disagreement between her boots and the deck in the form of some harsh noise – most of the distance that remained, and only a small shift in balance that propelled her into two steps forward took care of the rest.
“If you can get it done before we arrive and the crew you need aren't busy then yes, otherwise it'll have to wait,” she replied to Hoshi as she spun in preparation to disembark from her Mindy. “'After the Taii is done with us' may be a fair while though, so don't hold your breath.” To the Taii herself - who had ironically just sent her a message – she returned a simple “Copy that.” She was just about to get out when the captain's announcement came across the PA bay speakers, and forced her to rethink her move.
“You heard the Taii,” she addressed the infantry, “Toys for all, and the big ones at that, so gather 'round ladies.” She stomped over to the armoury lift as she called up the items that she wanted and let the armoury take care of having them sent down. “Kit will be as follows: Barrier Shield Module, Gauss Cannons times two, paired Countermeasure Augmentation Pods, an Aether or Plasma rifle - whichever you feel happier with. If you have a pressing reason for different equipment, speak up.” To be honest she wished she had more to work with, the armoury lacked a few items that she would rather have included in the loadout and she had ended up with something that was a bit too defensive for her liking.
There was no point crying about it now however and so she worked with what she had and erred on the side of caution with her recently-met crewmates. She herself stuck with the Leader Support Pack and filled out the rest of her hard points with a missile pod and gauss cannon for her shoulders, offensive augmentation pods for her lower legs and an aether beam sabre-rifle.
The lift to the armoury lowered, and on it in neat racks was all the equipment the infantry would need to outfit their armours.
