    The sad thing is you know they're going to market this as cool new technology and make it appealing to the impressionable youth out there by making them seem like they can be that CoD badass.

    Putting that aside, as long as this offers more protection and a tactical advantage to the troops, I'm all for it. Of course they will likely reserve it for spec ops soldiers before your general infantryman.

    Looks ugly as hell and i'm worried about how they're planning to deal with the heat build up from the impacting rounds. That fluid is going to get real hot real fast and if that pump takes a hit, you've effectively got a dickhead running around with a wet plastic bag on his chest daring you to shoot him.
    It's also going to reduce the supplies troops using it can carry due to the weights of the pump and batteries, meaning we won't see this on regular infantry units for many, many years if ever.
    This is assuming they can get the power source sorted, of course.

    Incidentally, is anybody else sick of those stupid fucking scrolling bars websites like that insist on shitting up the place with?
    Adblock element hiding helper just got a goddamn work out, and the page just got orders of magnitude cleaner and easier to read.

    Haha the mountain dew in the one guy's hand. The ugly graphic tee on the other guy. Lanyard hanging from front pocket, racing gear.
