If you can build a suit to fight with bears, you can build a military exoskeleton with some practical experience built in. (Read

|"It's remarkably similar to the infantry suits in the PC game: Battlefield 2142. "

|"Probably the most famous is from Bob Heinlein's Starship Troopers. And I'm talking about the book or slightly the TV-series which adapted the concept rather well."

|"You're talking about the powered armor from that book:
A suit isn't a space suit - although it can serve as one. it is not primarily armor - although the Knights of the Round Table were not armored as well as we are...

|"I can think of 2 examples of maple,Powered Armor, the first being John Steakleys ARMOR (DAW 1984) where the Suits are Nuclear Powered, formed from an allow called Plassteel, and come in 3 forms, Warrior, Scout, and Command. The second example is Series of novels by John Ringo. These suits are quite similar to Steakleys Powered Armor, but due to an act of extreme heroism, the main Characters Mobile Armor was Upgraded to Antimatter power, giving it a virtually unlimited power source. These M.I. Suits have the ability to Fly, carried Wicked weapons systems (Anti-matter Bullets fired from rail guns(Grav Guns), Plasma Rifles, Hyper Velocity Flechettes, on board Grenade Launchers, and a VERY sophisticated Holo Imaging System that allows the user to project anything he likes to the enemy, a Giant Dragon for example, along with a Kick Ass Sound System to provide the necessary auditory accompaniment.

|"Erm.... didn't you read the article he claimed it can stop a elephant round. why it doesn't specify rather its a slug or buckshot. But the military doesn't expect civilians to be able to test out rather a RPG can penetrate there armor. They tend to take a concept of something and have there own engineers work on it. They could easily swap out plastics for Kevlar. "
