Maybe they solved this but I cant see if from the link you posted...
well. many russian inventions are big on paper. sometimes they work.
and those sometimes they are turn out to be quite badass stuff.

hard to say anything more about this one.

but hey.. what do you think of that [URL="http://www.spikedhumor.com/articles/134034/Soldure_Exoskeleton_Developed_by_Utah_Company.html "]exoskeleton[/URL]?

Cool Stuff Torps, I can see many variations of that down the road, but I always say that the senses can never be fully compensated for by machinery, even if they can deal with noise elevations from moving joints, and weight pressures... how much does it add onto a Soldiers body weight?... where the footing is weak, does he get stuck? Some issues yet, but I see good things for it once the basics are fully covered....

When it does become a deployable asset, the training regime should use it as an add on, and not compremise on core fitness and development of senses for battle and unaided field craft.....

yep.. what i see neccisery for this technology to really kick in is:

-portable powersource of grate magnitude.. or equally low power consuption machinery..
-durable syntethic tissue for muscles maybe?
-very low weight to very good durability metal alloys.

They are so close to perfecting this technology. This is the type of research I want to be a part of. I agre that fist should come regular grunt training and then suit training. If the suits are built right then there should be no difference in movements. read that as minimal training.

aww. damn.. ~Its like~ i was gonna hope that you americans would just grow like
totally fat with those suits. Then we could have come over and take all your
you OIL.

extra virgin)

This is great news.... and I fully agree get trained properly as a soldier then get trained up in the cool toys like exoskelton suits and stuff.. an ExRanger Officer who was in my reserve unit before I went full time many moons ago, took an interest in my training and delivered many lessons which I have used in Regular Army life and beyond, and one of them was coined in his one liner "the greatest weapon we have is our head, then and only then should we use our hands"... there is no easy way to getting good combat senses... none... The suit just increases your effectiveness, but its your mind that strikes the first blow always... if ya know what I mean...

Tiny means the MoD electric armor tests. The "electric reactive armor" aims to supercharge
Armoured vehicles hull layer as the as the penetrator hits the plating.
this should in principle then turn the penetrating jet in to plasma or vaporize it from the most part before it breaches the hull of the vehicle.
i'm guessing that different electric armor programs have been running around the globe
for atleast a decade now but there are no operational applications yet.
its been tested tough. aparently the mechanism works but the
field use would be puzzling because it requires hi-voltage capasitors and
stuff.

Yea, alternative powersources maybe.... but high voltage near humans is normally not a good thing especially when they are earthed by walking on the ground... buzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
