The concept sounds feasible.
Honestly, with the way we currently have options to turn off all the visuals on both ourselves and our ships, recognizability doesn't have the same weight in this game like it might in other MMO's. I would really like to see more of what we have with the STF ground sets unlocking tailor options for not only things like the EV suits, but also for the starship sets. It would be nice to use, say, the Reman shield effect while actually having the MACO shields equipped.
