|Scientific Monolith suit|
The Scientific Monolith suit is a protective suit appearing in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat. It is not available to the player in any game.
The suit is used exclusively by the Monolith faction, mostly by Monolith veterans and experts, except in Clear Sky where it is only used by Monolith rookies. It provides the wearer with excellent anomaly and radiation protection and high bullet and shrapnel protection.
The suit is visually similar to the Monolith suit but with the addition of a Screen helmet. There is some differences to note: the Scientific Monolith suit's tactical vest has slight differences, uses black gloves, a different hood, and the shoes' soles are green. This is no longer the case in Clear Sky onwards as the Monolith suit design was changed to be identical to the Scientific Monolith suit.
Despite the suit not being obtainable to the player, several Monolith fighters can be seen wearing it. In Shadow of Chernobyl, it is mostly used by veteran Monolith fighters, who will mostly use a AC-96/2 to go with it in Pripyat, or a Gauss rifle in the final levels. In Clear Sky, it is rather uncommon as it is mostly used by rookies In Call of Pripyat it is issued to a good amount of Experienced members using assault rifles (namely the TRs 301) and Veterans using the SVDm-2.
