Have to agree with Flash here. Going by all the smoke and flame, plus the instant ignition they are rockets rather than jets. Also, bolt on jet engines would be far to heavy and complicated compared with simple rocket packs.

Say what you like about the yanks - all the gear and no idea... - but when they have a problem they don't mind throwing money at it to try and find a solution, they don't mind looking well outside the box either and they don't let any health and safety nazis stand in the way of a dangerous idea that might work.
