HULC Exoskeleton a Revolution in Rapid Deployment Forces and Mobile Mechanized Infantry

HULC Exoskeleton a Revolution in Rapid Deployment Forces and Mobile Mechanized Infantry | Robots and Robotics | Scoop.it

The HULC can assist speed marching at up to 7 mph reduces this somewhat; a battery-draining "burst" at 10mph is the maximum speed

A soldier with a pack would normally go at 3 mph maximum and cover 10-12 miles in a day. Exoskeleton Soldiers could also carry lightweight foldable electric scooters on their exoskeleton that would enable 60-100 mph on roads. If the bike had motocross like capabilities it could still go about 30-60 mph on rougher terrain.
