Information
Iron Man's
Mark VI Suit

Specifications: Iron Man Armored, Flying Suit, Mark VI
Designer: Anthony Stark
Major Contractor: Avenger, West Coast

Armor exterior Dimensions:
Height (overall): 78 in.
Width (overall): 34 in.
Width (short axis): 21 in.
Weight: 240 lbs.

Armor composition:
Surface/primary Layer: Molecularly aligned crystallized iron over a base of titanium nitride. Metallized paint is precise thickness to destructively interfere with RADAR band microwaves.
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 90 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): Increased efficiency of conversion of electric field potentials into usable electricity. Mark VI two orders of magnitude more efficient than Mark V.
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, supplemented by a limited, experimental self-motivating programming

Articulation Seals/reinforcement: All magnetic. Due to microscopic construction, seal topology allows a 4.5-inch diameter wrist cuff (for example) to have a practical circumference of 12 inches. This allows for a greater area over which a magnetic seal can be affected.

Life Support:
Range: High altitude to deep water: 130,000 feet above to 1,800 feet below sea level.
Air Supply Duration: 2.5 hours
Pressure: Normal atmosphere (14.7 pounds per square inch) maintained internally over a wide range of external pressures.
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: Entire armor generates anti-gravity force field, turbine in boots and backpack provide thrust.
Maximum Speed: Mach 1.2 (960 mph)
Life Capacity: Normal flight configuration 3,200 lbs. High thrust: 5,300 lbs.
Range: N.F.C., About 2,000 mile (100 % load), 3,900 miles (50% load). H.T.: About 800 miles (100% load), 1,000 miles (50% load), about 7,500 miles (unloaded, ballistic flight)
Fuel: Ambient air supplemented, on demand, by Stark formula J9 jet fuel.

Weapon Sub-Systems:
Offensive:
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: Disruptor Beam
Description: Wide spectrum electromagnetic and gravitic beam which are swept and pulsed within certain frequency ranges in order to disrupt as many functions of as many types of electromechanical devices as possible
Range: About 25 to 100 feet
Limits: Little effect on shielded devices.
Note: Some effect on living things possible through low frequency gravitic pulsing which can upset equilibrium, thalamic rate, nervous system and cardiovascular system, depending on range.
