A retired Navy SEAL spoke to podcaster Joe Rogan about the US military’s plan to build a real soldier’s suit based on Marvel’s Iron Man.

Kristin Beck, 55, was a guest on Wednesday’s episode The Joe Rogan Experience and talked about the project, codenamed ‘Carnivore’.

According to Task & Purpose, it was originally known as the Tactical Assault Light Operator suit, or TALOS, but is popularly referred to as “the Iron Man suit.” In 2019, the program was abruptly discontinued.

Beck, the first openly transgender Navy SEAL and Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient, seemed to suggest the suit was still in production.

“We’ve been working on it for a long time,” Beck told Rogan. ‘I was at the beginning of the project. It was first called ‘Carnivore’ and a few other names. But in the beginning we only worked on a handful of them.’

Beck said the suit is made of titanium, carbon and fiber. Rogan wanted to know if the suit was some kind of exoskeleton.

‘Yes. It’s much stronger. You can carry a thousand pounds, you can do a lot,” Beck said. ‘If you think of such a suit, an exoskeleton, how are you going to move that exoskeleton, those people? So if you had a team, let’s say you had 12 guys in those exoskeletons, which plane are you going to use? Which humvees? Which vehicles? How do you get these guys around? Which boats? It changes everything.’

She claimed the suit would be strong enough to stop a ton of potential threats.

“I have to be careful about some of the things I say,” she said. “They’re always working on it,” she added with a smile.

The military’s attempts to build some sort of superhero-like exoskeleton date back to 1961, when the Pentagon asked U.S. defense contractors to work on submissions for a “servo soldier” that they ambiguously made into “a human tank equipped.” with power steering and power brakes. †

The idea was inspired by the 1959 publication of Starship Troopers, as Iron Man was still two years away.

In the decades since, with advances in technology, similar ideas have spread throughout the military.

The TALOS suit dates back to 2013, long after Iron Man became a box office sensation, sequels and an entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

US Special Operations Command wanted the final product to be a mix of Iron Man and something from the Halo video games, capable of unrestricted movement, a heads-up display and weapons integration capable of ‘surgical lethality’

The suit itself likely came to an end when the military confirmed it was discontinued in 2019, but parts of it will likely function within future military innovations.
