High Tech Suit To Storm into Battle

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

The Land Warrior suit is on the cusp of revolutionizing how our soldiers do battle. A high-tech collection of electronics, the suit includes a helmet-mounted monocle that gives soldiers sniper-like vision thanks to its 12x zoom and built-in night vision. The suit also has its own PAN (Personal Area Network) that distributes power and data. A built-in GPS lets soldiers know where they stand at any given moment and the suit's 12 pound weight is a huge improvement over previous incarnations that have tipped the scales at 40 pounds (or the weight of two XPS M2010 laptops). Shocking as it may sound, a lot of today's ground soldiers don't even have radios, so this is an excellent upgrade for our folks overseas.
