Hope everyone who celebrated it had a very merry Christmas. Mine was very busy, only got about 4 hours sleep each night for the past few nights.
You are correct LB, 3 med packs and 4 carbines. The carbines have enough charge in their power packs for about 40 more shots (I did not keep track but the fight lasted 10 rounds so just rounding it off).
The tool kit is exactly the same as the one Silten has currently. As for encumbrance, I do follow the book pretty closely. So Silten's STR is an 8 which means his heavy load is 16kg (half of the STR score squared). Doing a quick total up of the items listed in the character sheet, he is at like 3.5kg. Adding in a medpac (0.1kg) and possibly the portable computer (2kg). So carrying around another tool kit would not put you over, but would not be necessary nor give you any additional bonus. His total carrying capacity (meaning the what he can carry beyond the 16kg) would be 32kg (8*8*0.5). And the maximum he can lift is 64kg (8*8).
