I know the knowledge of these suits is nothing new here on ATS, but I thought I'd bring this short article about testing this summer to light.

"The military's dreams of "Iron Man"-style exoskeletons should be one step closer come June, when early versions of such a system are slated to be assembled for testing. Three prototype suits will be put through the paces — though the real thing won't be ready for years. The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, is intended to protect soldiers and augment their awareness, while also improving strength and effectiveness in combat. No matter how you read it, it sounds like "Iron Man."

Sounds pretty cool. I'd say that the future is here.

What say you, ATS?

It was bound to happen.

How long until the one-man spaceships which I envisioned as the future of spatial warfare?

The problem is though, that just as many could be enslaved using an army of them too.

I agree.

It's better than nothing, but it looks more like police riot gear than hi-tech armour for soldiers in the thick of it. Hi-Ex, frag grenades and incendiary rounds will take his head off in no time..no point protecting the chest if the head is open and available to hit.

I imagine cost is more a factor than protecting easily replaceable flesh and blood, it if weren't i could design better armour in a few days.

it wont fly, or be powered by some fancy tech. It wont be bullet proof or have mad glowing slits for eyes.

It will be pretty much nothing like an iron man suit.

But it will be cool.

We gotta start somewhere. But nah, the future was here already. Now we're going back to the future.

The British have an answer for such technology improvements called “Sapper”.
The simple answer would be to use a 50 BMG-API round on the armor and let the trauma shock liquefy to internal organs of the dude inside while he is flying back about 20 or so feet through the air.
The BMG can past right through the object of disaffection or it will be moved as if hit by a train. It just makes it easier for the clean-up crew to carry away the body parts.

Being incased in a modern day suit of armor has its advantages.

Yes…as I said it would make it easier to collect the body parts!
Your Hollywood example is rather lame!
Do you have any idea of what you are talking about?

Yes if talos works it will be very cool. If not huge waste of money.

Until people start using armor piercing rounds. And a DU round will cut through armor with no problem.
