South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Taiwan builds ‘ironman’ exoskeleton suit to boost troop endurance on battlefield” – below is their description.

Taiwan has unveiled an ‘ironman’ exoskeleton suit on October 26, 2021. The first generation lower-body suit enables soldiers to carry heavy loads and reportedly move at speeds of up to 6km/h (3.7mph). It’s designed to enhance endurance on the battlefield, as well as for use in rescue and relief missions. The demonstration comes amid heightened tensions across the Taiwan Strait. By 2023, the self-ruled island’s defence ministry plans to develop version 2.0 of the suit with even greater capabilities.

    Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

    The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
