1st Gen Combat Exoskeleton by Gauntes 1st Gen Combat Exoskeleton by Gauntes
During their development for new type of kevlar armour, the Pinnacle Armour have announced that they will work intimately with the Land Warrior project.
While effective, the Land Warrior project was struggling to take off. The new emerging of armour company and the United States Army gave the project immense amount of resources.

During the Soldier Equipment and Technology Expo of 2032, the new combat suit for United States was introduced.
The suit was titled "Heavy Armoured Infantry Supplement Exoskeleton", or HAISE (haze) for short. The Haze suit performed well on ballistics test, scoring on par with the famous 'Dragon Skin' body armor. The overall materal used for the armor was 30% lighter and thus allowed some non-vital parts of the body to be protected. The suit also has artificial muscular system which increased endurance and strength of the soldier by no less than 300%.
The entire suit is powered by Mk.5 Fission battery which can sustain the power of the suit for 5 weeks.

One of the most distinct part of the suit is the helmet. While part of the suit, it can be removed and re-attached. The helmet has internal heads up display which shows the position of the wearer, his distance from his nearest squad, his objective (if any) and sophisticated sensors ranging from night vision to thermal. The suit is also able to withstand direct fire from high calibre bullets. It needs to be connected to the suit to be recharged.

The Haze suit gained considerable amount of recognition for its effectiveness and efficiency. While United States Army announced that the suit won't be in active service until more tests have been done, it was clear that the Haze suit was going to be the next combat armour for the American Army.

The Haze suit played significant role during the 10 hour war, Which swiftly ended in United States victory.



EDIT
previous design was too skinny and was almost skin tight. the overall design was widened to make the thickness of the armor more believable

the gun slung on the back was removed and re-designed for the purpose of looking less retarded
the gun is now separated and used as scale reference much like the [link]

the 'kilt' armor was removed due to questionable practicality

the helmet design was re-done because previous design couldn't turn its neck
(the helmet now separated as well)

two separated shoulder armor was attached to make it more human compatible than looking like a robot

overall detail fixes

It's awesome. I always liked the idea of HUDs on helmets.

Thank you

the suppressor makes it a bit longer than it actually is. I based it on AR15 platform so it should be at around 40 inches
