The Da'at Yichud Power Suit is a piece of ancient technology manufactured by the society known as the Da'at Yichud. It has been seen in various forms in Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Edit

The suit was first seen after the capture of the Eva's Hammer. Upon entering the Da'at Yichud vault with B.J. Blazkowicz and Set Roth, either Probst Wyatt III or Fergus Reid are seen in the cutscene trying on the suit. B.J. orders that the suit be given to Caroline Becker, due to her crippled state.

Afterwards, the power suit isn't seen until B.J. is ambushed by two Guard Robots in the Kreisau hideout's hangar, when Caroline single handedly destroys the robots while wearing the suit, using the suit to overcome her paralysis and giving her superhuman strength and durability.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Edit

During the events of The New Colossus, the suit is used by BJ to cope with his injuries and enhance his combat abilities against the Nazis after receiving a paralyzing injury similar to Caroline's during the assault on Deathshead's Compound. Though initially used by Caroline Becker, she is later killed by Irene Engel after the assault on the Eva's Hammer. The Da'at Yichud Suit was dismantled piece by piece by Nazi soldiers with a crowbar when BJ fell from a significant height after destroying the claws of the Ausmerzer holding up the Blazkowicz farmhouse. It is largely unknown what happened to the remains of the suit following BJ's capture by Nazi forces.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Edit

Jess and Soph Blazkowicz appear to wear similar power suits during their search for their father. It is revealed the fragments of the original suit was recovered, reverse-engineered and mass-produced for the US Special Forces. Instead of the unisex design, the suits can now be crafted to suit different genders.

The Nazis have also successfully reverse-engineered the technology of the original suit to create their own version of the power suit. Worn by Nazis commanders, the suits reduce their vulnerability to attacks and making them a formidable foes to reckon with than their predecessors.

FunctionalityEdit

"Your suit. The damp heat. The maddening itch. How did you endure it so gracefully? It's fitted so tight I struggle to breath. Yet inside, Caroline, you've left a vacuum too great to fill."
―B.J.'s thoughts to Caroline on the suit.[src]

The Power Suit is shown to be a powerful armored exoskeleton that is linked with the wearer's central nervous system, which gives the wearer neural control over the suit's functions. It is also designed to increase the natural strength of the wearer, allowing them to perform super-human feats such as heightened strength and agility. Due to its neural interface it can enable someone previously paralyzed to walk again or allow the injured to function properly. It is also designed with a helmet that retracts at the will of the wearer and will fit males and females alike.

The suit is powerful enough to enable the user to effortlessly leap high into the air, smash through robots with a single blow and tear a human being in half. The suit also provides a degree of protection against gunfire, shown when B.J. activated the suit's helmet to protect himself from being shot in the head at point-blank range by Super Spesh; however it does not offer much protection against blunt trauma as seen when Caroline Becker was still knocked out by a single blow from a metal pipe, albeit wielded by an inhumanly strong Super Soldier. It is noted by B.J. that the suit is noticeably tight, itchy, and does not regulate body heat very well. Furthermore, the suit can also be deactivated by pushing the control panel of the suit located in the center chest, since a Supersoldier deactivates the suit worn by Caroline just by punching the control panel with great force. One downside of the suit's technology is that it seems to lower the wearer's overall vitality, resulting in a reliance on the suit's armor systems as the user appears to have lower overall tolerance to physical injuries.

According to Set Roth, the most prominent feature of the suit is that it can provide protection against radiation at any level.

By the time of the Youngblood, Set Roth has integrated the suits with cloaking technology allowing users to be invisible to the enemies.

TriviaEdit

  • The helmet of the power suit resembles the head of the Asgardian Destroyer from Marvel's Thor Comics.
  • Even though the suit is supposed to give you the ability to perform a power slam attack, you can still do it without the suit.
  • Even though Caroline has increased strength and bullet deflection with the suit, the player doesn't. It only allows you to walk again, to perform a power slam attack and increase your maximun armour to 200. This appears largely as a means of balancing gameplay versus adherance to the game's plot, however.
