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

Video shows Royal Navy using flying Iron Man-style jet suits as they practise storming enemy ships

Britain’s jetpack commandos of the future: The Royal Navy enlists stunt men in Iron Man-style jet suits to prove how jetpacks could be used to storm ships

  • The ‘wearable flight system’ has five engines mounted to the arms and the back 
  • Jet suit can fly for up to eight minutes at a time and reach speeds of over 55mph
  • The jet-powered suit produces over 1,000 brake horsepower to gain flight

This amazing video shows the Royal Navy using flying Iron Man-style jet suits as they practice storming enemy ships.  

One man donning a jet-powered, carbon-fibre suit is seen launching off a vessel and effortlessly fly several feet into the air.

Like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster, after a brief period to stabilise over the water, the man then storms a ship by landing on it.

He then reverses his journey, glides off the ship back up into the air and hovers onto the vessel he came from.

A second clip from the same footage shared by the U.S. Naval Institute on their Twitter feed shows four men, again clad in Jet Suits, simultaneously launch themselves off a vessel flying in the direction of a ship in the middle of the ocean.

One by one they are seen climbing high into the skies circulating the ship before taking turns to safely land onto it and shaking each others hands in victory.

The marvelous Jet Suit creation is a device from British tech startup firm Gravity Industries.

Its founder, Richard Browning, has previously demonstrated the suit in a number of countries around the world. 

It gives the wearer full control to fly through the power of five mini jet engines with a flight time of eight minutes.

Along with the 94-second Twitter footage, the U.S. Naval Institute posted: ‘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.

‘U.S. Special Operations Command is also evaluating a jetpack that can reach speeds of more than 200 mph.’
