One thing I've always wondered with our version of HL2, and by extension, HL2 in general is this. The Combine Energy outlets are clearly in places for a reason (Outside the fact that of course Gordon needs to refill his giant bloody orange tank every 10 meters.) And that's lead me to ask, what if the CCA use them for the same exact purpose. Now, hear me out. I know we like to portray the CCA as using Kevlar, and COTA as heavy flak uniforms respectively, but wouldn't it make sense for them to use some form of electronically powered armor, much like Gordon? Now, don't get me wrong, it isn't some sort of god machine like the HEV, but it was shown humans already had this tech back in HL:Opfor, where the HECU had powered vests for their protection. And it'd add some merit to the idea the combine chargers everywhere. Of course, the biggest issue is, how does it work, compared to down and true, simple Kevlar that we go with right now. Do the fibers tighten upon bullet impact, drawing power from the PCU? Maybe, and that seems most possible, but it never does go into detail. What do you think?
