Washington Times on October 10, 2013, published a report by Defense Tech on super strong armor for American forces. Excerpts below:
Special operations chief Adm. William McRaven has reportedly put in a request for liquid body armor that would provide America’s elite soldiers with built-in computers and superhuman strength. The suit, which scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology will contribute to, is being referred to as the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS), Defense Tech reported.
In a statement released by the Army, the super suit would be composed of fluids that “transform from liquid to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied.”
