Another Powered exoskeleton, this time as a walking-talking barbecue!
About this creation
Like the Recon variant, this exoskeleton was developed for heavy combat. Unlike the Recon, however, it prefers to make its presence known. Hence the flamethrower.
OCPF soldier: Gotta (gasp) keep run-(gasp)-ning. Don't let it (gasp) get me! (gasp) Pyromaniac wearer: Wait up! I was just showing you how it works! Honestly! I don't intend to turn you into a pile of ashes!
These units were designed for environments where the wearer's "unique talents" could be used to devastating effects. Originally, they were being designed in order to fight forest fires, not start them. Oh well. Score one for military funding.
As you can see, this model has plenty of armor to protect the wearer from the extreme temperatures in which they work. The flamethrower is, regrettably, a bit small for the suit, but the R&D department claim that they are working on a larger one that will be released in the near future.
Quoting Nick Jensen
Very cool powersuit variant. The samurai helmets make great shoulder armor pieces, and that flamethrower is great.
Don't they? I was experimenting with shoulders (I would post the originals, but they were. . .hideous) and actually tried the Star Wars rebel helmets first and then realized that the samurai helmet would also work and was quite pleased with the end product. Thanks for the comment!
