    Bet your life, by the time they've armoured the hell out of it, it'll end up as just another weapons platform, and likely have an AI (uniteligent) brain to guide it.

    Some rich Japanese businessman would give his left nut for this thing. If I'm honest, I'd be willing to risk the nausea and concussion to give it a whirl.

    The original "flying bedstead", precursor to the jump jet didn't look unlike that. maybe it's lunar transport or somesuch.

    I've wanted something like that since I read Starship Troopers back in the mid-60's. A full-up Gorilla suit would, of course, be better, but I'll take what I can get. Which so far has just been dreaming...
