OK, this is going to seem like something out of Star Wars, but...



Felix Baumgartner used such a device to fly across the British Channel and into England. Back then, the flying wing was still called "Skyray" and had been conceived of as an adventure sports gimmick by its inventor, Alban Geissler. Now that Geissler has put more work into the device, it's ready for use in adventures of the non-leisurely variety: The flying wing is now called "Gryphon" and is being perfected for use by elite military units. The fun gimmick has become a weapons system.

All they have to do is combine this with that fancy new exoskeleton they are building and we'll have Mobile Suit Troopers.
