The SKAT-9M is an armour featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

Army armoured suit "SKAT-9M" is designed for military stalkers assault operations in areas of extremely anomalous activity. It includes a PSZ-12p heavy military bulletproof suit, an integrated compensation suit and a Sphere-10M helmet, which is equipped with an air filtration system. It provides excellent protection from bullets and splinters, although slightly reduces stalkers' mobility, and the respirator makes breathing difficult. It has a balanced and effective system of anomaly protection.
