Star Army Pilot

Star Army of Yamatai pilots are carrier-based soldiers that operate manned fighters and bombers, as well as shuttles and some small starships. Note that Power Armor is not piloted - it is worn by (typically by Star Army Infantry), and there is not a “power armor pilot” specialty in the Star Army (although these used to be, when power armor was first introduced). Pilots wear the Star Army Aerospace Flight Suit, Type 32.
