This is interesting. A smart soldier system (with HMD)? The company is one of the private military equipment manufacturers out of Guangzhou, not an Airsoft/cosplay outfit.
Compared to the smart soldier concepts we saw out of pretty much every country 10 years ago... Damn the differences are huge. Miniturization of batteries/power and optics is probably the biggest contributing factor.
I’m aware of that. But one thing I couldn’t agree on is that why spending millions or even billions when they couldn’t be bothered to get the most basic thing (1 dollar worth) correct.
Still needs a few more years I guess, it obstructs the wearer's FOV on their left side by quite a bit.Compared to the smart soldier concepts we saw out of pretty much every country 10 years ago...

The armor portion doesn't seem to be any improvement. Guess this is more of a what's achievable now concept than a future deleveopment goal.
the Ghost Recon games were created by a studio that was told from day one to study real US Army concepts and kit for the basis of their games. GRAW 1 and GRAW 2 were literally taking US Army Objective Force mock ups Land warrior Prototypes and concepts and back filling logical ideas. More modern titles of the series did the same. Taking Concepts from DARPA and building around them. As such it’s basically if NATICK made a video game. Ghost Recon’s first game (2001) was set in the then far off future of 2008 ironically telling of a Russian Georgian war... GRAW in 2006 was set in the then far distant... 2013. GRAW FS in 2012 set in 2024. With its successors taking place between now and thenSo I guess Ghost Recon Future Soldier is pretty realistic huh?
Don't really see what you're trying to say here. Of course tungsten cored rounds are going to be heavier, sectional density is how they can defeat modern ceramic body armor. In terms of weight for an overall fighting load, there's no significant difference. Comparing the 145gr 7N13 to the 185gr 7N37, if carrying 600 rounds total of each, there would only be around a three and a half pound difference, give or take.As to Tungsten cored HV ammo types that would require significant weight and density.
When neither of those are an option, what do you suppose should be done?As to body armor able to stop tungsten tipped small arms the best way to stop that is an IFV or not to fight
I see. Increased protection would be a trade off, but I dont see it as being too substantial if its only at the cost of prior advancements in weight savings. Though it might be (a bit or a lot) more expensive, which ties into the dilemma you stated regarding how much would be worth spending on each individual soldier.To the first part I was referring to the armor not the penetrator. This is sitting at the edge of demanding an armored car.
If and when we see Chinese police SWAT teams decked out in this gig that'd be something..
Ghost Recon Future Soldier released in 2012, back then most of the stuff are still "far out" either due to power source+consumption issue (just ask yourselves this: those external battery you and I carried around everyday, for the same mAh capacity, what is the size+weight difference in the last 8 years?), or underlying physics (such as optic camo) not there yet.So I guess Ghost Recon Future Soldier is pretty realistic huh?
