Gravity tests head-tracking, shoulder-mounted firearms on its jet suit

• New Atlas

The video shows a pilot, possibly Browning himself, hovering several feet off the ground and firing several rounds from an automatic pistol into water, balancing the suit against the recoil as the gun follows his head movements with a slight lag.

Gravity has made no bones about it: it wants to work with military customers. Indeed, back in 2021 the company released video of ship boarding tests conducted with the UK Royal Marines, in which a jet suit pilot lifted off from a rigid inflatable boat, then raced off at considerable speed to board a larger vessel.
