There would probably be a elite group of 2000-4000 Soldiers that would be trained in a special program for this suit. Imagine a small battalion of people that look like they are from a video game walking down your street getting attacked by snipers and such. A nerds orgasm.
Doesn't look as much Halo, a little more Gears of War.
Because of the breasts.

Damn. I've had dreams about this shit... Except, the people in the suits could jump out of moving helicopters and hit the ground running.

Think of the look on a terrorist's face when he guns you down, only for you to get back up and walk slowly towards him. He panics, shooting every round he can it you. But you just keep walking and walking, untill you get right up to his face and quietly say:
"Please, don't do that k?"
then theres a bunch that have been switched out or are on leave. None have been there the whole time. Only about .650 of the troops in Iraq have died, and that is throughought the whole course of the war, start to finish. Most are just roadside bombs.
Over 1.5 million Americans have served in Iraq including all the rotations. So a fatality rate of 3000 is so fucking low, with a casualty (non-lethal injury rate including accidents, disease and so forth, even spranged ankles are included) of around only 20,000.
Therefore US military personnel only have a 1 in 75 chance of getting injured. And a 1 in 500 chance of getting killed.
That is the lowest casualty rate in such a large-scale war IN HISTORY!!!
Yet due to the media presentation of Iraq, and the emotional response people get from overly negative coverage and propaganda, the Iraq war is considered to be just a massive slaughter. Meanwhile, both the military and civilian deaths in Sudan and Somalia in the past 4 years have been MUCH higher, but nobody really pays attention to that, they just want to focus on Iraq so they can exploit the situation for political gain.
With that said, only around 400 troops have died from small arms (RPGs, grenades, snipers, machine guns, assault rifles) and most of which were snipers.
The enemy has almost NEVER actually fought US troops in an actual gun battle, but when they have they get obliterated and US casualties are very low. The vast majority of combat deaths in Iraq are from snipers, booby-traps, and IEDS. The enemy cannot actually fight US troops, its as simple as that, they can only hide in holes in the ground and use civilian disguises, civilian human shields, and concealed explosives to kill our boys.
The vast majority of deaths and injuries all together are IEDS against US troops on patrol or at checkpoints.
So If a suit like this worked against IEDs, that would be fucking great. But a completely bulletproof suit isn't really needed, and isn't WANTED if it adds much weight. Because our soldiers and marines are more combat effective due to their mobility, not their body armor.
But to be quit honest, that suit is shit. Its just a silly prototype made by a guy with a vivid imagination. There are so many problems and unanswered questions regarding that suit that its just a laugh.
I doubt most troops would want to wear that shit in Iraq.

I mean like, what if he gets constantly shot with thousands of bullets. You can't tell me that thing is indestructible. If anything, it'll just make the wearer more careless because he thinks he's invincible.
Read the part on 1313 Paste.
Dumbest "Invention" I've ever seen.
Pepper spray? A clock? A fan? AMAZING PIECE OF UTTER NON-JUNK.
He was saying how it would have been effective at black hawk down.
That was 16 years ago, people don't use machetes anymore, they use AK-47's and high powered bolt action sniper rifles.
It can withstand bats? Thats insane! Give me a pillow and some string and I'll withstand bat hits to the arm too.
Show me when that plastic Halloween costume can withstand bullets and I'll be impressed.
I'm impressed. It was awesome when I saw that bear suit on Real TV. This is the next step in military technology, that guy building a mech was taking too damn long anyway.

...but does anyone think that it actually stands a chance of getting mass-produced?
I don't, frankly. I'm betting this idea has been thrown about in the army for quite some time. When I was 8, I first wondered to myself why soldiers didn't wear cool body-suits like in cartoons...so I'm guessing a lot of people in the US army have thought about it too.
Pure awesomeness. You must read it.

Theres no Black Ranger any more, I've been watching Power Rangers Time Force at 1:30 in the morning, and they took the Black Ranger out. The animals are different too.
Just because the man who invented the telephone lived in Canada for a brief amount of time doesn't mean Canadians invented the telephone you fucking pathetic douchebag.
Canadians always distort history to make believe that they have actually accomplished things. If I hear someone say one more time that "lolz Canada invented insulin" I'm going to cry for losing my faith in humanity.
Insulin was 'invented' by the pancreas you fucking morons. Its a naturally occurring enzyme.
what your simple mind doesnt realize is that synthetic insulin is a major breakthrough for people with diabetes, did you really think that they have a bunch of pancrei on a rack making insulin? finish grade 8 and come back... btw, you cant use the word enzyme if u dont know what it means, so please, dont.
thats funny since his neck and hands are still exposed, its not supposed too look cool it's just supposed to be cheap and operational a helmet takes away from peripheral vision which makes you unable to handle close combat, he has lights and crap all over it which makes it easy for enemies to spot you. The actual "exoskeleton" doesn't cover the whole body you can still see cloth at his sides and around his shoulders. Bear spray would only work if the enemy soldiers were stupid enough to get close to you instead of killing you (terrorists don't really like to take prisoners). His suit is still bulky and noisy because it clicks. He is an idiot and needs to go back to bears where he won't be getting thousands of soldiers killed because his suit sucks.
I'm a metalhead and proud of it!OR AM I AN EMO, SPAM ME

The only thing Canadians invented are modern sports, I think.

And maple syrup maybe. Oh and they invented being complete douchebags.
Do the guy relize the war overseas is not like halo or battlefield 2? There isn't guys running around shooting at the Americans. It's fucking civillans straped with bombs blowing them up while they build Police Stations.
If war games were like real war, you would run around with 1,000s of NPCs until one of them went SHERPA KENTO, and blew up your squad.
I want one to go with my Star Wars action figures and Power Rangers DVD box set.
Please disregard the above post.
Is is sad that some independant guy could come up with this suit while the governments who are sending people out to war hardly give them any armour at all? The suit looks pretty cool but it would need to be tested several times over before it could be used. What I want to know is how long it could hold up. Will it last years, even under heavy use, or does it wear out faster?
Wonder how much it would be to mass produce those?
As for the whole chest shield thing. I vaugly remember the black and green ranger on some mission together and the green one went off to do something and left the other alone, but to help him out he gave him the shield. It was only one episode though. From what I remember the green ranger had it the rest of the time, except for when he was off the show.
