How ’bout this little snippet from the Sunday London Times?
MILITARY scientists have designed a Batman-style set of wings to enable paratroopers to glide up to 120 miles into enemy territory.
The device enables the caped soldiers to be dropped outside hostile airspace from altitudes of up to 30,000ft and infiltrate enemy lines without being detected by radar.
I’d very much like to see my favorite sojer tricked out in one of those rigs. In fact, I believe I may have found a picture of him modeling the kit for the Future Combat System (Artilleryman) program.
Head proportion’s about right.
