Royal Navy using flying Iron Man-style jet suits to practice storming enemy ships


THIS is the incredible moment the Royal Navy is seen practising confronting enemy ships with a real life Iron Man-style jet suit. 

In one video, a man clad in the suit is seen flying through the air from a sea vessel before landing on a ship.

He then makes his way back to the vessel he took off from.

In another amazing scene, four men in jet suits are seen effortlessly elevating themselves towards a ship. 

The men are seen launching themselves from a vessel, then flying high in the sky before landing on the ship. 

They congratulate each other by shaking hands once they are securely on the ship. 

The action packed video was shared by the U.S. Naval Institute on their twitter feed with the caption: “The Royal Navy has been testing Jet Suit assault teams to determine if the Iron Man-like suits could be used to rapidly swarm and board ships.”

It also said the U.S. Special Operations Command is “also evaluating a jet pack that can reach speeds of more than 200mph”.  

The Jet Suit was made by Gravity Industries, a British tech startup firm. 

The suits have been around the world with boss Richard Browning demonstrating how they work.

With a flight time of eight minutes, they give the wearer the ability to fly by way of five mini jet engines. 

The wearer has four of the mini jet engines strapped to his hands and one on his back.

The jets are said to be able to reach a speed capacity of 55mph. 

They are also able to generate a stunning 1000bhp (brake horse power, the equivalent of a Bugatti Veyron supercar.

Last month, a jet suit for paramedics was tested by the Great North Air Ambulance Service. 

A test flight was conducted over the Lake District. 

It is said the flying paramedics would be able to reach patients within minutes. 

The videos were shared on the Twitter page of the U.S. Naval Institute
