– Engineering description, XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Production Time: Immediate
- 5 Engineers
- Confers 2 armor HP
- On the lower game difficulties and for Rookies, the option to equip a Nano-Fiber Vest should be weighed against the tactical benefits of a grenade: clearing cover, killing multiple aliens and making new room entry points.
- On the higher game difficulties, the Nano-Fiber Vest is a critical stop-gap armor necessary to increase soldiers' survivability until Carapace Armor is unlocked.
- Once available, Chitin Plating provides superior bonuses to the Nano-Fiber Vest.
