This suit is a high quality modified SSP-99 suit. It provides increased body protection from bullets and splinters, as it was designed for guards working with scientific expeditions. This suit comprises a closed-cycle breathing module and an integrated anomalous field suppression system. Anomaly and radiation protection is equal to that of the SSP-99 suit, making the two unmatched in those terms. This suit provides bullet protection equal to that of the SEVA Suit, but offers better explosion protection and higher durability, and it even weighs less. All of this combined with a second generation night vision device make it one of the very best suits in the Zone with only 2 disadvantages: price and pretty poor durability, but still - it's worth it.
Sakharov mentions that their suits are unmatched in radiation protection due to the high quality materials and helmet, as well as a special coating he uses which comes from the Urchin artifact.
Professor Kruglov is the only Non-Player Character to wear the SSP-99M suit in Shadow of Chernobyl, with corpses wearing it found in the Red Forest area. However, Sokolov also wears it, being the only NPC who does in Call of Pripyat.
