Iron Man's
Mark V Suit

Specifications: Iron Man Armored, Flying Suit, Mark V
Designer: Anthony Stark
Major Contractor: Stark International

Armor exterior Dimensions:
Height (overall): 75 in.
Width (overall): 34 in.
Width (short axis): 21 in.
Weight: 215 lbs.

Armor composition:
Surface/primary Layer: High carbon, steel/iron alloy, including trace technetium-niobium arranged in a finely tessellated mail.
Secondary Layer: Comprised of various thermoelectric generators, temperature insulators and regulators.
Tertiary Layer: Consists of two independent, 'crimped' armature electric motors that are aligned at right angles to each other, which can simulate human musculature movement.
Special Features: Each layer possesses integrated communication, power-handling and control circuitry - with regions, which contain certain large area specializations, such as the simulation of a specific muscle.
Note: Suit's microscopic scale chain mail is made rigid by numerous computer-controlled magnetic beam generators. These generators can sense and amplify the suit wearer's motions and strength. Discrete networks of them are arranged, in conjunction with the full-body system of DC motors, to mimic the function of human musculature.

Armor Articulation Motivation:
Musculature enhancement: Amplifies wearer's strength about 75 times.
Limits: DC electric motors allow for severe overloading with a theoretical limit of 1,000% for .0085 seconds.

Power Supply:
Type: High-density storage battery, AC/DC electricity.
Primary: Cryogenic flat batteries.
Secondary: Solar power converters, regrouped in microscopic ridges for improved collection efficiency, arrayed on shoulders and headpiece.
Tertiary (back-up): Any electric potential, whether generated or naturally occurring, such as heat.

Armor System Controls:
Type: Automatic, computerized, body motion following.
Sub-Systems: Local networks of muscle groups and high-density computers, which control large scale movements such as walking.
Special Features: Armor is comprised of finely tessellated mail, which can minimize sudden compressions, such as a blow, by racially dissipating the energy throughout the suit.
Note: There are numerous spoken and cybernetically interpreted commands, but they are limited because of lack of computer memory and programming volume.

Articulation Seals/reinforcement: All magnetic. Because the seals are microscopically scaled, the actual measure of certain internal seals are several inches when the surface measure would be only one inch.

Life Support:
Range: High altitude to deep water: 70,000 feet above to 1,000 feet below sea level.
Air Supply Duration: 1.7 hours
Pressure: Normal atmosphere (14.7 pounds per square inch) provided internally over a wide external range.
Temperature: 73° Fahrenheit internal, over -185° F to 2,500° F external. .85°-140° internal, over 2,500°-15,000° F. external.

Environment Design Program:
Type: Full spectrum chemical, biological, nuclear environment
Range: Two months on filtered external air
Exposure: Low-level radiation over 2 month period; suit can tolerate short periods of high radiation by stepping up magnetic beam generator's activity

Propulsion Systems:
Type: Each boot contains two miniature, magnetically powered turbines, which compress ambient air into incandescence to generate thrust.
Maximum Speed: Mach 1.2 (960 mph)
Lift Capacity: 2,700 lbs.
Range: Practically unlimited at moderate speeds. About 1,800 miles (100% load), 3,500 miles (50% load).
Note: Unloaded, the suit can attain an altitude of 70,000 feet. At maximum load the average altitude is 8,000 feet.
Fuel: Ambient air.
Navigation: Suit is equipped with internal guidance, laser gyroscopic movement sensor and LORAN C as mutual/redundant navigation and ground positioning aids.
Special Features: Each boot is equipped with small cryogenic storage tank containing liquid air which are able to fuel the mini-turbines is non-atmospheric environments.

Weapon Sub-Systems:
Primary: Repulsor Rays
Description: Pulsed, laser-path guided, medium-density plasma projectors.
Range: 40 feet
Limits: The suit palm blasters are able to fire for very short periods of time. The duty cycle allows for a 25% cooling period.
Secondary: Suit Skin
Description: The outer surface of the armor is equipped with devices, which are able to convert thermal energy into usable electricity. Above a certain temperature the suit employs an electronic cooling network to protect the suit operator.
Limits: About 15,000° Fahrenheit.
Note: The suit can optimally function over a range of -185° F. to 15,000°F.
