This amazing video shows the Royal Navy using flying Iron Man-style jet suits as they practice storming enemy ships.
One man donning a jet-powered, carbon-fibre suit is seen launching off a vessel and effortlessly fly several feet into the air.
Like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster, after a brief period to stabilise over the water, the man then storms a ship by landing on it.
He then reverses his journey, glides off the ship back up into the air and hovers onto the vessel he came from.
A second clip from the same footage shared by the U.S. Naval Institute on their Twitter feed shows four men, again clad in Jet Suits, simultaneously launch themselves off a vessel flying in the direction of a ship in the middle of the ocean.
One by one they are seen climbing high into the skies circulating the ship before taking turns to safely land onto it and shaking each others hands in victory.
