Just thinking if it would be applicable for soldiers to wear Juggernaut type armor like in this game in real combat?
Armor that is 3 times more layered than regular issued body armor.

Would something like that stop sniper rounds, would it be effective in a battlefield?

No. It would be too cumbersome.

It's a bombsquad suit. It wouldn't be practical in real life, because those suits don't stop anti-tank rockets, which most forces carry. Just a bigger target.

one person using the suit in a small squad could definately wreck havok.
Bomb squad armor aside, bulletproof masks and the like would be great for the person who's using the lmg for surpressive fire.
In addition to this, that new body suit that lets you carry huge amounts of weight (in real life) would make it not so cumbersome. You could also probably weild larger guns with ease. Weilding a large caliber mounted turret on the exoskeleton wouldn't be to far out there. (halo3)

Anti-tank rockets aren't really that accurate, and it would especially hard to hit a small target like a guy in a suit with it dead on.

not like the military would pay to fit every soldier with better armor anyway ~

Body armour works but its HEAVY. Going over long range on foot would be almost impossible.

Technically they have body armor that's like that look up dragon skin on google or youtube. The bullet tests done on it are insane and it never gets penetrated. Secondly there was a bank robbery a while back in L.A where the guys had full body armor from head to toe so technically it's possible but would they use the second part in the armor no. The dragon Skin they wont use in the military for some gay reasoning so ya
