The Special Operations Harness is a Covenant combat armor designed for the Sangheili Special Operations operators of the Covenant Army. This special infiltration harness uses embedded camo tech capable of turning the wearer invisible. However, once its shields have been lowered, the harness cannot cloak its wearer until the shields have recharged. Also, the shielding of the Special Operation Harness is noticeably weaker than that of Sangheili Rangers or Field Generals.
