Although I am of course impressed by the speed at which the HAL suit has been adapted to the purpose of radiological threat reduction, I must point
out that the HAL system has been in existance for some time. There was always the intention to produce a model of the suit which would be good as an
atomic/biological/chemical protection suit.
The other thing I ought to point out,is that the picutre featured on the article page, is the very image that was released when the hybrid assistive
limb was first unveiled a few years ago. In order to get a good idea of what a tungsten armour outer would look like over the HAL outfit, one could do
worse than having a look at a bomb disposal squad member, except of course that the armour on this new suit would have to be denser and more sealed
against outside elements , than a bomb squad outfit.
It would be great to see a picture of the HAL, WITH the armour plate applied, and I would love to know how they are solving the issue of getting air
into the suit, wether they are applying an independant air source, such as bottled air, or wether they have applied effective filters of some sort,
such as one might find on a modern battle tank.
Good job either way!
