“Well… since Minister Wei has arrived, let’s begin the commission review,” Academician Xu said softly.
Zhou Ning immediately nodded. “Okay, all the team members’ works have gone through a simple test yesterday, and three of them have achieved good results.
“I hope that in today’s review, everyone can speak about their own design ideas, as well as the technology to forge their armor. After that, I will help with testing the various attributes.”
Speaking of which, Zhou Ning pointed at three machines that were running at the side. They were the defense tester, the environment simulator, and the density analyzer.
The three machines could analyze the various attributes of a piece of armor and its performance in different scenarios.
It was much more professional than the testing machines in the research laboratory.
Professor Liu was very satisfied with Zhou Ning’s explanation and immediately said, “Alright, the test will begin now. Feng Qi will be the first one.”
Feng Qi’s heartbeat instantly sped up when his name was called. It was as if he was back in school, being called by his teacher.
As the three high-ranking leaders gazed at him, he immediately walked out of the line and opened his box on the table. He took out a silver armor.
The silver armor had good toughness on the surface, and it also had some elasticity. The shadow of the core module could be seen in the central area, and it looked very cool on the surface.
Feng Qi took a deep breath and met the expectant gazes of the crowd. Then, he quickly introduced his work, “Sir, this is the improved armor that I’ve forged. The material of this armor is made of polyester and spandex composite textiles. Not only can it resist pollution, but it can also effectively block attacks and other damage. This armor was also forged using the folding forging technique to maximize its defensive ability.”
After he finished, Academician Xu and Professor Liu nodded slightly with faint surprise on their faces.
With just a few words, they knew the focus of his improvement. His choice of the armor’s material was especially daring. He actually thought of the composite weaving of those two materials.
It was considered not bad.
“Your forging skills are indeed not bad. Next, let’s test the armor’s performance in various situations.”
Wei Lan praised him softly and ordered the commencement of the tests.
Zhou Ning immediately picked up the armor and placed it on the first machine to test the armor’s defense.
The defense machine would simulate various attacks and constantly observe the armor’s situation, ensuring that the wear-and-tear rate was within one thousandth.
The rumbling sound of the machine’s operation rang out. Feng Qi stared at the display screen with some excitement, wanting to see how many points he would get for his proudest work.
The rest were also looking forward to it. Although they all focused on different angles of improvement, the points for Feng Qi’s masterpiece would provide them with a point of reference.
The machine slowly stopped working, and the conveyor belt sent the armor out without any damage.
[Improved Model: 70, Ninth Generation: 58.]
The numbers on the screen made Feng Qi sigh in relief.
He had focused on defense when improving the armor. If he failed this project, there would be no need for further tests.
The other students on the team could not help but exclaim in surprise. They did not expect the ninth-generation combat suit to score less than 60 defense points. It seemed that the old armor’s strength was its lightness and versatility!
“Hehe… not bad. Seventy points is almost up there on the level of heavy armor,” Academician Xu said with a smile.
Professor Liu, who was beside him, also showed an expression of approval.
Wei Lan nodded slightly. He did not praise or criticize the armor. The most important thing in a standard armor was not its defense ability, so improving its defense was only improving part of its ability. The focus should be concealment, convenience, versatility, and breathability, so he did not express any opinions for the time being.
“Next, we will measure the performance of Feng Qi’s armor in all kinds of extreme situations!” Zhou Ning explained before she immediately put the silver armor in the simulator.
The simulator would simulate rainy weather, prolonged battles, hidden situations, and diverse scenarios that would occur on the battlefield. As such, the attributes and effects of the armor would be analyzed from multiple angles.
This process usually lasted for a few minutes.
At that moment, Feng Qi was a little nervous standing in front of everyone. He was not sure if his armor would be able to withstand such a complicated battle.
A few minutes passed in the blink of an eye. A sizzling sound came from the simulator, and the simulation inside started to end.
Everyone looked over expectantly. The conveyor belt transported the armor out, but the armor’s originally bright and beautiful surface had become a mess.
It was covered in mud, sweat, and blood as if someone had really fought in the suit.
The screen on the simulator lit up, and a string of numbers immediately appeared on it.
[Comfort – Improved Model: 64 points, Ninth Generation: 61 points.
[Perspiration Absorption – Improved Model: 42 points, Ninth Generation: 57 points.
[Breathability – Improved Model: 39 points, Ninth Generation: 70 points.
[Stealth – Improved Model: 77 points, Ninth Generation: 72 points.
[Battle Evaluation – Improved Model: 71 points, Ninth Generation: 70 points.]
Everyone had different expressions when they saw the series of test results.
A few team members did not notice anything wrong at the moment. They only felt that it scored a little badly in perspiration absorption and breathability. Despite that, this silver armor was still better than the ninth generation in other fields. It should be considered pretty good.
Zhou Ning’s expression was the same as usual. It seemed that he had already anticipated the problem.
Right then, Academician Xu and Liu’s appeared disappointed. They shook their heads helplessly.
Wei Lan stared at the test data on the screen and suddenly frowned. He looked at Feng Qi and said in a heavy tone, “You should know what the original request was, right? We need lightweight, multi-functional, stealthy, and breathable combat suits to help the cultivators on the front lines better complete their mission!”
Feng Qi’s expression changed slightly. He was a little nervous, and beads of sweat appeared on his forehead.
“Minister Wei, my battle armor is indeed multi-functional and stealthy. Moreover, the armor only weighs 1400 grams. It’s very lightweight.”
He gritted his teeth and continued. “It just has one problem: Its airflow is a little bad!”
“A little bad?” Wei Lan asked in return and shook his head in disappointment at the same time.
“Team member, do you know how important airflow is to a battle uniform? Cultivators on the battlefield often need to wear a combat suit for at least six hours. Do you think this problem will not affect the soldiers’ performance?”
“They often have to fight against monsters of all races. Even if they have spirit power, they will still consume a lot of energy. Does it feel good when sweat accumulates on the surface of the skin?”
Every word that Wei Lan said felt like nails, embarrassing Feng Qi instantly.
