That looks very useful, landing some troops first onto a ship they want to board to secure it. I can imagine at night time that would come as a complete surprise to the enemy.

A whole new type of paratrooper.

I was watching the SF try it out the other week. They were boarding an oil tanker, it looked like he couldn’t take a primary weapon as when he landed he only used his side arm and that was on the vast space of the deck. I also noticed it took him a while to remove a lot of the clobber and the camera was cut to viewing other things during this period. 

Still, it looks really cool and does seem that it is only in its initial testing phase. Certainly looks as though it could be a real asset in the future no doubt.

They could provide some target practise, I suppose.
