This is really cool Jakob. Super soliders with ten times the strength! Would be great to find some material that as super light that could make them unkillable at the same time. This my friend is the future of war.

They were technically ready years ago and have been in use by Japanese and Singaporean companies for a while. I guess this just refers to military readiness?

I would assume so. It's a lot different having some thing that works only in ideal conditions and requires a power cable, and something that can take the beating up that a combat zone implies.
