Army Third Arm

The US Army reveals a “Third Arm” device looks to be straight from a science fiction film, but it’s actually a specially designed harness that helps take the weight of weapons off a soldier’s arms. Best of all, it doesn’t require batteries, is light enough to be easily transported, and evenly distributes the load of a heavy weapon. “It falls in line with the direction that the Army wants to be heading in the future. We get comments from Soldiers who tell us different things about the way it feels on their body…about the way it redistributes the load. Some like it, some give us tips about the ways it could be improved, and we’re using that input to improve the device and improve the design so that it not only works well, but it also feels good,” said mechanical engineer Dan Baechle.
