Like the Samurai's mempo, the uniforms of many of today's Special Forces units play dual roles. Not only do they protect the wearer's face and conceal his identity, they terrify the pants off of the enemy. Take the newly unveiled uniforms of Taiwan's Special Forces for example. They look like something out of Army of Two.
US soldiers are not the only ones getting advanced uniforms. In fact, Korea may be taking the lead with a new stormtrooper suit that—if goes beyond the vapourware stage—will include every sci-fi technology you can imagine. From a helmet with a heads-up-display to the personal cooling and heating system in the suit itself, and a matching weapon that includes a laser-guided target assessment system to fire, you guessed it, mini-missiles. And that's just the beginning.
