War Machine / James Rhodes from Iron Man 2

War Machine / James Rhodes

Iron Man 2

War Machine's suit is based on the Iron Man Mark II armor, with upgrades and ballistic weapons added, and called the Variable Threat Response Battle Suit (VTRBS). Rhodes is under pressure from the United States government to convince Tony Stark to relinquish ownership of the Iron Man armor. When a drunken Stark, in armor, endangers the lives of the guests at his birthday party, Rhodes is forced to don the Iron Man Mark II armor to intervene. After the intervention turns into a brutal fight that wrecks Stark's home, he leaves with the Mark II armor and hands it over to the military. The armor is upgraded into the heavily armed VTRBS at Edwards Air Force Base by the United States Air Force with its arsenal of heavy ballistic weaponry provided by defense contractor Justin Hammer.

The markings on the VTRBS include its serial and production number of "AF47 001", the "ED 445 FLTS" tail code designation of the 445th Flight Test Squadron, and the modern and heritage United States Air Force logos. The armor is equipped with heavier external armor plating, non-weapons grade repulsor based flight stabilizers, enhanced jet boots and backpack jet thrusters that could theoretically reach speeds up to Mach 8, an arc reactor in the chest capable of generating at least eight gigajoules of energy, and multiple external weapons such as dual arm-mounted FN F2000 tactical assault rifles, a M134 7.62 mm minigun on the right shoulder, and a left shoulder deployed bunker buster missile launcher nicknamed "The Ex-Wife."
