New Delhi: When I saw birds flying, I was inspired to make a plane, but now man himself is flying. Yes, you must have seen many viral videos in which humans start flying while standing. If you haven’t seen it, then look below. In Sydney, Australia, a young man got a lot of applause by doing a flying dance in a lion’s dress. This is not magic, it is actually possible now. Flying machine has become a reality. Now the Indian Army is going to use it. In fact, as the challenges increased with time, science started doing new experiments. Guns that fired dozens of bullets were prepared for the soldiers in one stroke, we have dresses and helmets that kept ‘cool’ for months. Countries all over the world are now preparing future armies. India also cannot be left behind so the army is going to buy jetpack suits. As the name itself suggests Jetpack Suit, it is such a suit that a person becomes a jet by wearing it. The market price of this Iron Man style suit is said to be Rs 3 to 4 crores. Although the army has not told at what rate it will buy the suit. Soldiers will be able to fly 10 to 15 meters in the air by wearing this suit powered by a gas turbine engine.
The challenges facing India have increased today. Pakistan is not desisting from its antics on the western border. Here, China is doing audacity in Doklam, Eastern Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. Companies like Human Flight Startup ‘Gravity’ are preparing such suits for the army. The Indian Army has issued a request for proposal for a similar suit. Army is going to buy 48 jetpack suits. Meaning, like in movies, the soldiers posted on the border will also be seen flying in odd circumstances. The army has clearly said that it will be bought through an Indian vendor. One company has told that such a suit has five gas turbine jet engines which generate energy of about 1000 horsepower. The suit can also run on jet fuel, diesel or kerosene. Users can give direction to the jetpack with the movement of their hands.
If you understand from the point of view, whether it is a mountainous area, desert, snowy or at the time of challenge from the enemy, such suits will revolutionarily change the mobility of the soldiers. It is possible that on the sudden movement of the enemy, the commandos can fly and reach the position to respond immediately. The weight of this suit will be up to 40 kg. In this, the system is in such a way that the soldiers can fly and land whenever they want.
You might be surprised to know that by wearing a jetpack suit, a person will be able to fly at a speed of 50 km per hour. Not for 1-2 minutes, the youth will be able to fly above the earth for 8 minutes. Whether it’s in minus temperatures or sweltering 45 degree heat, this suit will hold up well. It can lift more than 80 kg.
Robo mules are also being bought
At what level the preparations are going on, consider it as if the army is now planning to buy ‘robo mule’ as well. No, it won’t be an animal. Its name is Robo Mule because it will be a machine that will act as a mule. Don’t understand? In fact, the army still uses mules to carry logistics supplies and other things. In rough terrain, other means of transport cannot be used. The army is now going to buy 100 robo mules. This too will be bought from indigenous companies only.
This robot will also be four-legged like an animal. It has been told that its length, width and height will be 1 meter. The weight of this mechanical mule will be up to 60 kg. It can be used at an altitude of 4000 meters. A robo mule will last for about 10 years. Means the preparation of future army is in full swing.
