No. At least the kind I have made is not what he's wearing.

The PASD looks like a large armored robot. It's like putting on a suit of armor, from the middle ages. Your "squire" helps you into the machine, helping you make sure your legs are tight in the machine, then your arms. They then lower your computer console (helmet) on your head and latch it down to the suit.

The suit takes time getting used to, but it's worth it. With the computer measuring the gravity and the muscle strength in the users legs it gives the user the ability to jump alot higher. We also did strength assisting test. The test was able to lift what a max weight a folk lift could easy.

Halo... That s a good concept. Maybe someone is coming out with a suit like his.

The suit I came up with, I took the concept from that old computer game. Mech warrior. just a smaller scale. You can laugh, but don't you think that scientist have thought out of the box. These wright brothers, how do you think they got started on such a "Science fictional" idea. But now we have airplanes jets.

I don't expect not to be flamed about my little invention but after all, weren't the wright brothers "flamed" for theirs.

And an M1A2 won't protect you from a direct hit from a nuclear bomb. What's your point?
direct hit? Dear Lord no. If it was a close one, like maybe five miles you might survive.

This armor seems to me like a waste, I know the turret gunner needs protection, but an entire armor suit?

i find wearing body armor in combat somewhat bulky. if it wont stop armor piercing rounds y wear them. it'll lower ur maneuverability and ur a bigger target.

I dont know if anyone is reading this topic anymore, but I'll put in my opinion.
Body armor is something that is only good in moderation. This full body suit idea is ridiculous. I'm a sniper section leader in an infantry battalion. In order to do my job correctly, I need to be able to move comfortably, and more importantly, quickly. Now, that's hard enough, just wearing an IBA (vest with ballistic panels), a helmet, weapon, a basic load of ammunition, and all your other assorted equipment. When you start adding more armor, all you're doing is slowing down the soldier, causing him to be visible by the enemy longer, causing that soldier to be wounded, maybe killed. " Less is More" should definately be the rule.
