Powered Armor and Exoskeletons – discussion

Found a nice discussion of powered armor (exoskeletons). Essentially, the $100 RPG wins over the zillion dollar power armor.

The article points out that exoskeletons are more for letting a soldier carry a heavy load, rather than an Iron Man sort of deal. There was an exoskeleton in Aliens, used by the heavy gunners.
