The Atmospheric ReEntry Suit or ARES was a specialized variation of the XX-8 Oni Exoskeleton. With majority of the suits pouches and pockets removed it was far more streamlined, to make room for additional ablative armor plates for dealing with the heat and pressure of reentry. Underneath these plates, between them and atop the stealth suit were shield emitters for protecting the user from the heat as well.

After falling past the atmosphere the ablative plates would fall off, revealing the suit underneath, the shield emitters, and the backpack strapped to the suit. The pack would break open and an agrinium-titanium foil wing system folded out and a small repulsor unit activated allowing the suit to glide to its target quietly.

The downsides of this suit come from the fact that it has less protective ability than a Oni, and to increase its stealth it lakes motion sensors. The suit only features, thermal sensors, communications gear with built in encryption, the shield, and its power cell. The Flight unit, upon landing was to be detached and hidden. Due to the nature of what the suit did, and the risks involved, soldiers using the suit could not carry weapons larger than the ALIP making its use for infiltration its only effective use.
