WickedArms TA-17 Survival Kit

This kit, also known as the old Star Army Survival Kit, is no longer produced but is still extremely common due to its mass production (they were made by the trillions). In the Star Army of Yamatai, it was replaced by the Star Army Survival Kit, Type 31 in YE 31. As they were replaced, many of these older kits made their way onto the civilian market through surplus sales.

Due to weight of the water (16 liters or 16 kilograms/35 lbs), this kit is rather heavy.

Price: 100 KS (may vary)
