Tactical assault light operator suit (talos) that heals wounds and is also bulletproof, could be available for soldiers by 2016, claim military bosses. US Army chiefs are developing an Iron Man-style suit to give troops 'superhuman strength'.
When made, the tactical assault light operator suit (talos) is set to be bulletproof and give the wearer enhanced strength.
