Very soon every soldier will have a uniform that can detect and apply pressure to wounds and automatically detect and counteract nerve agents/toxins; helmet mounted displays with satellite/drone imagery that will coordinate strikes and display mission objectives; personnel carriers with electromagnetic armor; metal exoskeletons to increase strength and endurance; robot surveillance designed to mimic hummingbirds... and a bunch of other weird sci-fi shit. The American Soldier is literally becoming a Space Marine.
