Batman is coming?
« on: May 31, 2006, 10:40:10 AM »
This unusual equiped man is nothing else but the test for the new German paratrooper gear. With this pack man could flew a distance of some 120 km but German army also plan to equip this device with small jet engines. Official sources state that this is very hard to detect and track in the air. Basic idea is to deliver troops from the air in the conditions where the strong AA is present and cargo plane could not reach destination.

If they make the wings longer, they have paratroopers using a glider!
Nothing new since WW-II it seems!

Only news is composite material :))) But look interesting- I wonder what is the feeling to jump out and free glide arround with this device?
