China Sends Super Soldiers With Exoskeleton To The Disputed Himalayan Border

China has reportedly sent its Super Soldiers equipped with exoskeleton to the disputed Himalayan border with India.

China Sends Super Soldiers With Exoskeleton To The Disputed Himalayan Border

The Chinese military has shown off its recently delivered exoskeletons, using them to deliver Lunar New Year supplies to a remote border outpost in Tibet.

The area is noted for including some parts of the Chinese-Indian border territory that is a matter of dispute between the two nations.

A report on Saturday by the state broadcaster CCTV showed the new passive exoskeletons in use. The troops strapped on the smart-braces to get an extra oomph for the last leg of a supply run in China’s Ngari Prefecture, reported RT.

The border guards received presents and food for their New Year table, according to the report.

In the past, such a delivery would have taken as much as three days, but new roads, all-terrain vehicles, and the exoskeletons make the remote, high-altitude outpost, which is located at over 5km above sea level, more accessible than ever, the report said.

The deployment of the exoskeletons in Ngari was first reported last February. At the time, CCTV said the model was made for the harsh Himalayan environment and would be deployed to help carry supplies across rough terrain by redistributing a backpack’s weight across a soldier’s body.

The strap-on devices were probably the same that the No. 208 Research Institute of China Ordnance Industries reported delivering to the prefecture in November, local media said.

Another type of exoskeleton was advertised by the Chinese military in October, when CCTV released footage of troops carrying large ammunition boxes at an ordnance disposal unit.

The autonomous powered robotic devices augment the strength of a user, rather than simply supporting his skeleton and muscles, and allow pairs of soldiers to haul crates reportedly weighing up to 80kg each.

The report did not disclose the endurance of the unit. The biggest weakness of current exoskeleton technology, slowing its battlefield application, is a lack of batteries capable of sustaining the power-draining suits for prolonged periods of time.

  1. Yeah , the push to ” institute a global BIOSECURITY REGIME” is an old concept. Hitler called them ” ubermensch” ….nothing new under the sun.

  2. I’m ashamed that China and India had a common border…. I thought they are seprated by Nepal and Butan and Pakistan. Now I looked at the map and they are neighbors. India and China must shake hands to eliminate the Gates Empire criminals for the crime committed by them against the humanity and the crime of defrauding the public with teaser covid propaganda campaign. This battle against them and their culprit politicians and governments is a war of win or die.
