I think you have to look at this thing in the squad role. If you have a squad of 20 on patrol, you could outfit 4-5 of them with these. Given
enough armor, they then become mobile mortar firing units, as well as heavy machine gun fire units. This would enable non-equiped personal to get
close while mortar and heavy machine gun fire pelted the enemy. The quicker units would most likely get the killing blow, but I would rather have 4 if
these outfitted with autoloading mortar rounds, and a 50 cal, firing at the same time while the me and the rest of the squad went in to clean up.
Think about it. Your taking 5 unit, where it would take 3 men for a mortar crew, and 2 on a 50. Those 5 men are doing the work of 25, while 15 light
armored infantry are getting in position to cherry pick the enemy.
I think everyone sees the benefifts of shipping and delivery, as well as for the disabled. Another aspect, Disabled Vets, those having experience
could continue to stay in and perform there missions. How much does it cost to train a new soldier?
I think this is just one step in our human evolution. Mech-genetics is one aspect, but bio-genetics will play a role as well. Just because all
your soldiers can lift 500lb doesn't make them immune to poisonous gas, or viruses.
I do think though this can have far ranging implementations all over the spectrum.
