Certainly a very apt discription i believe, though different in the power steering to the mass of what is basically plate steel armor made from slabs of concrete, the mass alone is much of the problem.

Another idea that i had for the inquiry was that when unpowered does the armor loose more functionality than just power assisted movement such as allowing air to be past through the filters or do the mechanical peices of the armor themselves hind movement?

Da Golden Waaagh!
