Starship Trooper by Guilhem-Bedos Starship Trooper by Guilhem-Bedos
From Robert A. Heinlein's novel Starship Trooper.

This suit is the smallest mechanized combat system of the EFDF (Earth Federation Defense Forces): this man-sized unit contains a heavily armored exosqueleton and multi-purpose armament. The "waldos" actuators system times trooper’s strength by about 10 while thrusters and verniers increase all-terrain maneuverability and speed. Backpack feature includes main engine and batteries to supply actuators and waldos as well as some additional verniers, ammos and advanced sensors. Complementary weapons usually are a standard assault rifle with grenade or rocket launcher; tactic atomic mines are also rather common. The suit weights about one ton.

Made with pencil & marker in 1993

It was the thing that launched the mini-nukes and stuff.

Just from the name I kind of imagined it was this ammo magazine right on the back that split into a Y-shape to fire over either shoulder.

I should probably depict my own interpretation now that I think about it...

Funny, yeah as I thought about the Y-rack as you asked about it, I immediately visualized where and how it would be. Cool.

Maybe this is what a real military spacesuit would look like in the future...
