U.S. Army building Iron Man style suits to give soldiers ‘superhuman strength’ 
The U.S. Army is calling on private developers and R&D organizations to help it build power armour much akin to that used by the fictional character Iron Man.
The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (or TALOS) would be designed to give soldiers an advantage in combat with “superhuman strength” and mobility.
“[The] requirement is a comprehensive family of systems in a combat armor suit where we bring together an exoskeleton with innovative armour, displays for power monitoring, health monitoring, and integrating a weapon into that — a whole bunch of stuff that [the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command] is playing heavily in,” Lt. Col. Karl Borjes wrote on the official homepage of the U.S. Army. (Photo: U.S. Army)

    I think the basis of this design is to make women as strong as men. Women are not built to haul field packs and weapons,...
