Russia unveils hi-tech 'Star Wars' armour for soldiers

Post Neon Knight on Sat 12 Aug - 22:49

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4653886/Russia-unveils-generation-Star-Wars-combat-uniform.html

It might resemble something out of Star Wars, but this is the prototype for a combat suit that Russia hopes will give its soldiers the edge on the battlefields of the future.

The high-tech item includes an exo-skeleton, or outer layer, designed to boost strength and stamina and a layer of body armour to shield the wearer from bullets. The all-black kit also has a Stormtrooper-style helmet with a tinted glass visor and a mini task light poking out of the side.

It was put on display on Thursday at the National University of Science and Technology in Moscow. A model standing more than six-feet tall wore the suit while cradling a fearsome-looking firearm in a pair of black padded gloves.



The suit was created at the Central Research Institute for Precision Machine Building, a Moscow-based weapons development centre, RT reported . . .

Andy Lynch, of Odin Systems, a military equipment company, told MailOnline: 'Features of the suit include a task light on the helmet for examining things like weapons and maps. It also has a pop-up display that can be used for tasks like examining a plan of the battlefield.'

Looks great, but what is the cost?
It might be more efficient to give a better equipment to a thousand soldiers than having one robocop soldier like this.

Drones, armed artifacts with artificial intelligence/remote control, satellites.... these will be the warriors of future wars.

Or maybe I've seen too many movies. Suspect

Its not a bad concept, but I feel like this concept of a exoskeleton, power armor suit is still in its infancy. Taking in account the amount of money and man power it would take just to make a functional prototype. Making a functional HUD/Head-Up Display (basically an internet-derived, interactive GUI function through the visor of the helmet) visor, integrated computer processor in the power suit, sophisticated diagnostic software for battle, mining a good enough metallic alloy/metal derivative to maintain the stresses of advanced combat, etc. As well as applying this principle in meeting power armor quotas in factories would cost a lot of money. The concept of futuristic ideas are tempting to think about, but it will be a while before such a thing becomes a reality.

'The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piercing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
