“No, I don’t want a parachute, thanks; this will do…”

FOXNews.com called it “Attack Wing: Glider Makes Waves With Stealth and Speed” and wrote:

It weighs only 30 pounds and can be fully weaponized for assault and rescue. It has a 6-foot jet-wing that is steered with handheld rotary controls connected to its rudder. And it can hide more than 100 pounds of combat gear in a built-in compartment.

The Gryphon attack glider, designed to penetrate combat zones at 135 miles per hour, could revolutionize the art of parachuting. It has got to be at the top of James Bond’s Christmas list this year.

Looks more fun than a regular parachute, and more effective than those James Bond wings…
