So much work so little time...

I remember reading an article somewhere ages ago that the US Military were working on something similar, so troops could do more without using as much energy (carrying more weight over longer distances without tiring the soldier as much).
The only thing I've found in a brief search was http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powered_exoskeleton which is on wiki which I wanted to avoid. There was one on the bbc news site an age ago. Pretty impressive stuff though.
Think they need to make something to stop the larger round though, when a foot slogger becomes immune to .50 cal fire I think they'll be well on their way to Power Armour :-)
woop, here's the bbc one, 2001 :-)

There are many applications for such a suit, you could lift a car that has tipped over to help the people trapped inside for instance. Road crews, hospitals, police and not to mention the military would be sectors interested in such tech.
Would be funny if the Japanese already had the tech perfected and a japanese reporter would be taken hostage in Iraq, japan sends 3 people to deal with it, all in power suits, and the wtf pwn the hostiles.
I guess in the future regular infantry will all be running around with miniguns, 50-100 cal machine guns/cannons strapped to their arms etc etc etc.
If anyone can do it the Japanese can :D

|Ravingbantha||I'm interested in seeing just how viable the suits of armor really are as far as mobility goes. SM armor has always seemed far to bulky to be useable, expecially in CC.|

|Horgh||I'll be interested to see how the backpack will be attached to that.|

Let's just say, that we have two thing to do and we are ready for pianting.
Ok now, little explain. As you can see, we must finish shoulderplates and belts, as fro helmets we shall see.
Backpacks are not attached yet because we'd like to paint them first.
Shoulderplates looks strange but they are just hanging on the chest, we don't have holding yet. They'll be a little bit higher.

On the pics you can se old version of backpacks, they were heavy but strong. We decided to make them lighter, and covered with fiberglass they are even stronger now. We call them Superleggera and Scuderia ;)
