‘Iron Man’ suit shown at Tampa military conference


by FOX 13 Tampa Bay



The newest trend in suits for soldiers comes with more — and lighter — body armor, plus boosters for the knees and ankles. If it sounds like something out of a Marvel Comics movie, you’re not far off.

“[The suit] can make you run faster and for longer distances,” explained Col. Alex MacCalman of U.S. Special Operations Command.

The newest generation combat suit is being shown at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference and Exhibition (SOFIC) at the Tampa Convention Center this week. The annual event is held in Tampa because U.S. Special Operations Command is based at MacDill Air Force Base.
