Star Army Hammock

The Star Army of Yamatai officially added hammocks to its inventory in YE 33. The hammock can be used inside starships or in the field. They are designed to fit one person and can hold up to 200 kilograms (440 lbs).

Price: 25 KS replacement cost from Star Army CIF.

About The Hammock

The standard hammock is made from breathable olive green Nylon and is hung on hooks using a large metal ring at each end. The material helps soldiers stay cool and dry in environments like the jungle. The hammock does not have spreader bars, and weighs less than a kilogram.

One end of the hammock has a pouch attached to it. When the hammock is stored, the entire hammock can be stuffed into the pouch, which is closed with a drawstring mechanism. When the hammock is in use, the pouch is useful for storing personal items or a handheld communicator.

The side of the mattress are lined with loop tape that can be used to attach an optional mosquito net. The fine netting helps keep insects and snakes away from the soldier inside.

If hooks are not installed, Molecure Tape can be used safely.


Optional extras include:

  • D-ring carabiner clips (2)
  • tree-hugging nylon straps (to secure the hammock to trees without damaging them)
  • hook screws (suitable for attaching to many things, including trees)
  • a foam mattress
  • a pillow
  • a rain shield
  • mosquito net

All of these extras are usually issued with the hammock, but not all may be carried by each soldier, as loadouts are customized for each mission. For example, on a starship the mattress and pillow would probably be used, and in the field, they might be considered too bulky to bring but the mosquito net might be critically important.
