The jet bag, the jet suit, is already being tested in the UK

Flying like an Iron Man is increasingly possible in the real world. The UK Navy is testing a new model of jet bag for use in tactical operations.

The Royal Marines, a diabetic infantryman in the UK Navy, recently conducted an exercise to test the feasibility of new equipment in boarding operations: a jet bag, which allows the user to fly like Iron Man.


Currently, the best way is to use a helicopter and low soldiers on the deck of the ship using ropes or ladders. But with the Jet Suite produced by Gravity Industries, players can access it using an inflatable dinghy.

One of them gets into motion on the boat and a few seconds later lands on the deck of the ship. Once there, he can lower a ladder for his colleagues to board the boat.

The bag weighs 27 kg and can operate much faster and cheaper than a helicopter.

The equipment is still in the testing phase and cannot be sold. It is powered by aircraft kerosene and has four jet turbines mounted on the user’s hands. The user controls the aircraft by changing the direction indicated by the turbines.

Initially, the idea was that the jet bag would be used in specific areas such as military recovery in areas with security and hard access to military operations.
