Squad Automatic Gunner

Hyperweapon homage pt 2.  One of my favourite tropes of this style of ‘hard’ sci fi military design is the use of bulky ‘VR’ style helmets.  They give the wearers a level of mystery inherent in a mask, and also hint toward an environment that cannot be trusted.  The soldiers rely on overwhelming their senses with artificial information in order to survive, yet to the observer he seems blinded by this unwieldy apparatus.
