Ke-M2 "Mindy" Series of Power Armor

The Ke-M2 “Mindy” is a form-fitting, FTL-capable power armor designed for operation by a full-size Nekovalkyrja. Based on the success of the earlier Lamia M1, it was adopted by the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 25 to replace conventional infantry armor. Over three trillion Mindy armors have been produced since YE 25, making them extremely common. The ubiquitous Mindy is also an icon of the Star Army; it appears on the Star Army's emblem, the Star Army Hinomaru.
