Gryphon Single Man Flying Wing

Man and machine, Power Xtreme! Straight from the Centurions is the Gryphon Single Man Flying Wing. When strapped to a freefalling paratrooper, the 1.5m (4.9ft)-span delta wing and two micro-turbojets can propel a paratrooper a horizontal distance of 200km. Controlled by servos and holding 2 litres of fuel, you turn what would be a normal trooper drop into mini-man planes flying in from out of nowhere.

A German company is developing the technology and has yet to test it with the engines… but they have used non-engine models that allow for 50km glides. Long gone will be the days of the HALO jump to sneak in spies: just drop them from outside a country’s borders and they can fly themselves in. Obviously no price but I know what you’re thinking: how long till I can strap one on?

  1. So it’s official: The defence of the Free World is now in the hands of crazed 10-year-olds implementing whatever crazy crap they can dream up.

  2. Now all we need to do is convert the nosecones on those submarine launched ballistic missiles to carry paratroopers instead of nuclear warheads. That would put an end to terrorism wherever it is found.
