The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
...or member of YMCA?
now, where is my hoverboard?
We need never be away from ARRSE again
With a name like Jean-Louis DeGay ......?
The uniform itself is lethal? Well bugger me backwards!
Yes I noticed that bizarre statement as well, Spanker. I think the only person to whom it would be lethal, though, is the poor sod who has to wear it.
The kit apparently weighs fifty pounds - shame the batteries add another hundred ...
More seriously, I'm just going to hide in the bushes with a pointy stick then when he's swapping porn online with his mate I'll jump out and ram it somewhere painful while he's otherwise engaged.
Asymmetric warfare, OotS style.
You realise you're putting the US' Future Warriors' lives at risk, pointing out all these loopholes?
if it works , it would be good to use that in Iraq if it has built in air conditioning
"Predator here we come! we are invincible, throw everything you got and then pray for your mummy cos you are DEAD!"
Puts a nrew slant on "Friendly Fire"!!!!
What's with the helmet design on the bloke to the right? Looks very much like our old WWI\WWII style tin lid..........very retro!
And after all that technology and money they still forgot the helmet cover.
The one on the left looks like a gimp.
How longbefore they bring aout a "star wars stormtrooper" type outfit?[/img]
Knowing the US DOD they'll probably get Microsoft to write the software for this stuff... I for one wouldn't want to have to hit ctrl-alt-del every 5 mins in the midst of a firefight.
Also whichever genius thinks the nano-tech material will be able to detect bullets on its own has been smoking crack. The only way it is going to work is with somekind of millimetre wave radar. That poses three problems - one the weight of the radar & its power source. Two the battery life of the power source. And finally the minor problem that any wearer in his active radar nano suit is going to be lit up on the battlefield like a f*cking christmas tree. Not clever or conducive to longterm survival...
Still it gave me a good laugh
some of the kit reminds me of the film "Starship Trooper"
