Equipment

Equipment carried on a drop is traditionally kept to a minimum. Part of this is done to avoid TREs in eras with low Marconi Limits, but the other ever-present reason is that ITAP doesn’t want modern items left behind in the past if at all possible.

That said, ITAP is capable of providing its agents with rather good replicas when needed, many of which are constructed with self-destruction or quick biodegradation in mind.

The following items are routinely available for drop missions, designed with the target era in mind. Unless otherwise indicated, the weights are considered negligible:
