The Frogman was built to operate in underwater environments more efficiently than the traditional TP-2 POW Armor. Versatile though it was, the TP-2 could be unwieldy underwater; it's legs were not up to the task when it came to swimming. This model was not only a better swimmer, but also camouflaged with cool colors.

[Amphibious Duty]

Developed after it was noted that the spherical shape of the TP-2 could withstand high water pressures. The “webbed feet” are designed to be equally effective while swimming in the water or walking on land, but it is almost always deployed in water missions.

Generically known as amphibious POW Armor, this Armor comes equipped with an underwater booster and feet designed for underwater operations. It can operate at depths of up to 1000 meters.

The Frogman is potentially more useful in this mission than previous ones, as it moves through water easier than the standard TP-2 POW Armor does. On the other hand, its loadout is far more offensive and it can't resupply allies.
