Randal at XKCD has evaluated the feasibility of making a jetpack with machine guns. http://what-if.xkcd.com/21/

As wildly impractical as it is, it's possible.

"...our optimal craft comprises a large number of AK-47s (a minimum of 25 but ideally at least 300) carrying 250 rounds of ammunition each. The largest versions of this craft could accelerate upward to vertical speeds approaching 100 meters per second, climbing over half a kilometer into the air."


It gets better. The GAU-8 produces almost 5 tons of recoil force...in other words:

"If I mounted a GAU-8 on my car, put the car in neutral, and started firing backward from a standstill, I would be breaking the interstate speed limit in less than three seconds."

Awesome cartoon

Jetpack Joyride tells me this is not only possible, but the security at a facility constructing such a prototype is notoriously lax.

Possible translation:

Somehow I thought this was going to be an Action Figure Therapy thread, and Snow (character in AFT) was going to shoot someone in their penis' urethra.

I really want one of those things. Come to think of it, I'd rather just go all the way and get a set of power armor.

The original Bell Rocket Belt had two rocket launchers on it during military trials.
