I think they should just not wear anything altogether, at this point.

I don't quite get the fuss. I'm pretty sure that's just her wearing an upgraded fortress without her barrier jacket. Because come on, clearly there has never been official Nanoha cheesecake before. God, it's just the equivalent of a naked apron picture, except the apron is a wearable tank.

Well, the armor/costume designs have seem to be on a trend towards stupid, so that doesn't really help.

It reaches a point where it tries to be sexy and cool and failed at both.

Sexy and cool in my book would have the whole TSAB mage personel wearing pant suits or suits, with necktie. Without any of those silly and terrible mecha parts. And Barney from HIMYM would agree.

I prefer greatcoats or longcoats, but suits are nice too. Barrier Jackets resembling plate armors or lamellar armors would also be nice. Frankly, any BJ with enough fabric and a design that gives the impression that it's wearer is a warrior, not a pole-dancer.

And it's sad how the artist of NEXT seems to forgot that Nanoha is a ranged fighter, giving her a slashing pose instead of shooting.

She's no slouch in close-combat though (one of the most badass official images of her is clashing weapons with Signum afterall), and frankly shooting poses are less dynamic than slashing & swordfighting poses. We need more variety with Nanoha's poses rather than just the standard "point weapon" poses, which we already have a ton of.

I'm pretty sure that's her in the process of donning the thing. You'll notice in the bottom image has it clamped to her back like some grotesque mechanical insect. Those attachments are present in the top image, but open and unattached. I think what you're seeing is an armored base layer she wears under her barrier jacket, in conjunction with the huge exo-plates that go over the top. To either side of her you can clearly see the huge shield-tassets that are clamped to her waist when she's fully armored, awaiting attachment.

Also, on noticing the picture is labeled "Record 12," I'm not very sure it's even a technical upgrade from what we've already seen, wings be damned.

And like 200x more dignified too.

Point is that folks were wondering what happens if the Hucks succeed in dispelling our heroines' barrier jackets, and now we can guess: they're wearing underarmor now. The TSAB must have seen footage of the Galette-Biscotti war.

Does this mean we are now one step closer to having a hangar load-out sequence for Nanoha?

SET UP!

So why do people have a problem with that despite always drooling over the latest swimsuit image? That outfit sure as hell covers more than some of the bikinis she's been drawn in.

Someone probably asked the question: How does the backpack stay attached to her when it doesn't connect in the front and why aren't the backpack and waist unit connect to each other?

Answer: she's wearing an under-suit they both connect to.

Maybe.

Works for me.

edit: I also like the Wolfram in this Force Next.

Why not just have Power Armor if you're going to put this much stuff on her? It would be more difficult to just slice off then at least.

Because you don't want power armor any more than the rest of us, Mr. devil's advocate.

Maybe not, but it would be a good solution. Those floating shields are kind of a poor man's equivalent for actual armor.

Actually, they're the perfect defense against the type of attacks they're facing from the Eclipse. I think I saw something about a certain type of modern tank plating designed to deflect anti-armor hits that used a similar principle. If you want to block something extremely dangerous but don't expect your defense to survive a direct hit, you should avoid wearing it directly on your person. That's why shields were invented in the first place- a helmet doesn't do you much good when it's caved in through your skull.

Yes, I do think it's rather goofy and am not terribly fond of the current Nanoha arms race. It's one reason I'm looking forward to Caledfwlch showing its true face.

Isn't it obvious?

Magic.

Yeah, I get that's the point of shields, but it struck me as silly ever since this appeared that they're trying to use such a static defense in a world where people can control bullets with their minds. There's only what, two of them?
