Actually, battledress is the Traveller version of powered armour.
Battledress provides great armour as well as increased strength and
endurance.  Battledress gives the user the ability to lift heavy loads
(IIRC, it gives the user the equivalent of Traveller STR 30, avg human
has STR 7), withstand the recoil of a FGMP (Fusion Gun-Man Portable),
increased mobility of the grav belt ('I can fly...', and the ability to
drop from orbit.

Combat armour is more akin to the full armoured suit (kind of like
stormtroopers from StarWars).  Lots of armour on an environmentally
sealed suit, but no powered assists.
