There was a TV programme about 10 yrs ago IIRC all about a multi-million pound project to put an electronic soldier in the field. A couple of squaddies tested it and it was w*nk. Even when they turned the gps in the helmet thru' 180 degrees part way through... Today i got this via "Government Computing" so if they got it, presumably it's dead news - question is it sounds like the MkII of the original but does any of it actually work or is it still a case of addinbg 10kgs extra kit as well as spare ammo, batteries, ammo and rats. And what happens when the batteries pack up? Is there a wind-up handle! Anyone had "hands on"?
