A DARPA armor costume and long barrel plasma rifle from Nic Mathieu's paranormal action film Spectral. Soldiers wore their DARPA armor and used their plasma rifles in their final fight against the hyperspectral anomalies.
The armor consists of a black helmet made of dense urethane with metal fixtures attached, dark gray chest and back armor made of resin and urethane with black nylon straps, a black polyester undershirt, a black jacket made of nylon and polyester with leather detailing, gray pants made of nylon and polyester with leather detailing, black compression pants made of spandex and polyester, black leather and cotton-blend gloves with urethane knuckle padding, gray leg armor made of urethane and resin with black nylon straps, and black leather combat boots with nylon laces and rubber soles. Custom-built by the effects house WETA Workshop, the plasma rifle is made of dense urethane painted dark weathered gray with black wires running throughout, a black nylon shoulder strap, and white LED lighting in the flip-up sights powered by a removable battery back.
