, this picture features Able Spaceman (rank name provisional) Linden, of the dWS Hauptmann.
We have him in three seperate uniform styles as seen in the deWulf navy. Common across all three uniforms are the Navy badge on the left shoulder, and his unit badge on the right shoulder. Nametag is always found on the left breast, and on the light dress and worksuit he has his main qualification badges on his right breast. The three qualification badges are for Electrical Engineering, Communication Systems, and Mechanical Engineering respectively. The purple flashing and highlighting on his worksuit and skinsuit indicate his status as part of the engineering crew.
On the left is the light dress uniform, a rather classical suit and tie. This uniform is often seen at dress occasions and general usage planetside. This uniform is NOT recommended for use aboard ship or station due to its multiple loose bits of clothing and complete inability to protect against vaccum.
In the center is the worksuit, standard uniform while in space. It is a much more form fitting bit of clothing, and indicates his department (purple for engineering), as well as still retaining his certification badges. In an emergency, engineer Linden can put on "boots and bubble", a generic set of mittens that seal at the wrists, footcovers that seal at the ankle, and an unwieldy bubble helmet that seals down at the neck (the tail gets pinched at the base to try and protect the wearer). While this provides SOME protection against vaccum, it's intended only to protect the wearer long enough to get to pressurized compartments.
Finally, to the right is the skinsuit. This is a suit designed for short to middling length work in vaccum. These suits are produced to a rough template, but are usually custom-fit to make them comfortable for longer term use. Fully sealed from neck downwards, most crewmembers take a while to get used to how their tails have to be curled in to a pouch in the lower back. Early experiments in having a "third leg" for the tail proved to be one of those good ideas that didn't quite work, as fitting a tail backwards into the suit took far too long and always proved to be unwieldy. The helmet includes a built in communications system and resperator. Storage vacoules in the suit store waste and provide an hour of air independent of hookups to other systems. The helmet also has a built in HUD that can interface with most tools, making repairs and maintenence easier by relaying the readouts in a clear, easy to read format.
