What about the Mobile Infantry

The hardsuits of Bubblegum Crisis, landmates of Appleseed, etc.

I don't have a lot but I do have some lineart from the anime Starship Troopers. If someone writes profiles and researches the series I'll do some scanning.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

According to Yoshiyuki Tomino, one of his inspirations for Mobile Suit Gundam was Starship Troopers. I don't know if it was an inspiration for Stan Lee and Jack Kirby when they first drew the character of Iron Man for Tales of Suspense, but it would be interesting if in some meta-universe the prototype Iron Man was also the prototype for the Mobile Infantrys' suits.

To me, all a Mobile Infantry suit would need to be perfect is some kind of heavy direct-fire weapon to complement the automatic grenade launchers and the tacnukes. Maybe a hypervelocity railgun... :D
