Military's Real-Life Version Of "Iron Man" Suit Nearing Testing Phase

News stories about the military's development of high-tech suits of armor which would imbue soldiers with superhuman abilities abounded during the release of the first Iron Man movie in 2008. Well now, reports say they will be ready to test this summer.

Every comic book fan has dreamed of what it would be like don an Iron Man suit. This suit, which is called TALOS(The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit), will probably be the closest we can get. This high-tech armor has drawn comparison to the Iron Man suit because of the similar design and innovative technological features.

While the suit has no flight capabilities, it offers plenty of amazing features that would make Tony Stark himself proud. Features like: liquid armor that could turn solid in mil-seconds to protect from gunfire and explosive ordinance, sprays medical foam on a sustained injury, and keeps track of your vitals.

TALOS is being developed for military use. The suits could be delivered to special operations forces as early as June for testing.

If everything goes according to plan, the suits are projected to be deployed in the field by August 2018. This suits not only give our military an advantage over enemy forces, but will also exceptionally increase soldiers chances of survival in combat. That's what we call a win-win situation.
