However, when they looked at Minister Wei, they found that the leader still did not appear satisfied.
Wei Lan stared at Lai Hua with a serious gaze.
The latter’s heart tightened, and his entire body felt hot.
“Minister Wei, what did I do wrong? Please let me know.”
“Well, let me ask you, how much is a square meter of your four-groove cloth?”
Seeing Lai Hua’s sincere attitude, Wei Lan softened his tone.
Lai Hua finally understood what Minister Wei was dissatisfied with, but it was too late for him to make any more changes, so he could only tell the truth.
After he said the number, the people around him immediately widened their eyes.
Wow, a rich second-generation kid was on their team. The fabric alone was worth ¥40,000. Would an armor not cost at least ¥1,000,000?
Wu Mo rubbed his nose guiltily. If Minister Wei discovered that his armor was more extravagant, would he not die in public?
After all, his composite fabric cost ¥30,000 per meter, and the gemstones, as well as materials, embedded in it were expensive.
Compared with Lai Hua’s black armor, it was not much cheaper.
However, despite the expensive materials, the increase in attributes and effects was much higher, so the price had been put to good use.
He comforted himself in this way.
“Mm, it’s good that you understand your mistakes. Our tenth-generation combat suit needs to be assembled on a large scale. We will need at least 100,000 pieces. If it’s manufactured according to your budget, I’m afraid that the entire Research Department will burn through its military funds before it can forge anything.”
Wei Lan waved his hand as he spoke, indicating that Lai Hua could leave.
Lai Hua replied in a low voice and took his work back to the team.
Two people had failed consecutively, which undoubtedly put more pressure on the remaining members.
The test field was filled with a heavy atmosphere. Academician Xu sighed slowly, feeling somewhat disappointed too.
“Next… Chu Qingyan,” Professor Liu said casually.
Chu Qingyan promptly stepped out.
He was wearing black mittens and carrying a box in his hand. At a glance, its appearance gave off a mysterious feeling.
Chu Qingyan walked out with a calm expression. Then, he opened the black box, revealing a light brown armor inside.
The armor had smooth lines, and it was well-cut. Not only had he strengthened the elbow pads, but he had also placed two large pockets on the front. They could be used to hide objects while lying down.
Just as Chu Qingyan took out his work, Professor Liu, who was sitting at the side, instantly fixed his gaze on it. He seemed surprised that a graduate student could come up with such a developed piece of work.
Academician Xu’s expression also revealed a hint of anticipation. He wanted to see how this design would perform in all the dimensions.
“Dear leaders, this is the armor that I have forged. Its overall weight is only 1.5 kilograms, and it’s incredibly suitable for reconnaissance and other needs. The armor’s surface is made of high-molecular nylon material that has a flame-retardant effect. On top of being highly resistant to pollution, it also has good wear resistance. Wearing it for a long time will not cause damage.”
Chu Qingyan caressed the light brown armor with love.
“As for the forging method, I’m partial to the older carburizing process. It makes the inner core of the armor more resilient and is simultaneously beneficial for energy transmission.”
His voice was like flowing water, transporting his ideas and improvement plan to the others.
Hearing this, Wei Lan nodded slightly and seemed unexpectedly calm.
“As expected of Professor Tan’s closed-door student. His forging technique is much more familiar than that of his peers.”
Looking at the armor that was smoothly placed before him, Wei Lan’s lips curled up slightly as he sighed.
When the surrounding people heard what he said, something immediately dawned upon them.
Over the past few months, they had never heard Chu Qingyan mention that he was any professor’s student.
They did not expect him to be so secretive about himself!
At that moment, Zhang Yuan, who was standing behind Chu Qingyan, had an ugly expression on his face. He never thought he would meet the student of a certain professor in this test. Chu Qingyan’s existence was seriously hindering his development!
However, Wu Mo still looked calm. He was not surprised by Chu Qingyan’s background.
“Thank you for your praise. I only learned a little from Professor Tan.”
Chu Qingyan immediately cupped his hands humbly.
“Mm… Let’s test its effects first,” Wei Lan sat up straight and said with anticipation.
Zhou Ning immediately went forward and placed the armor into the defense testing machine.
Following a series of rumbling sounds, the machine tested the armor as usual.
In a few seconds, the results for the defense score were out, and the data shocked everyone.
[Improved Model: 73 points, Ninth Generation: 58 points.]
When they saw the 73 points for defense, Feng Qi, Lai Hua, and Zhang Yuan widened their eyes.
Feng Qi, in particular, had focused on defense. He knew how difficult it was to raise the defense score to 70, as he eventually had to give up on breathability.
Yet, Chu Qingyan actually managed to surpass his score in this segment. Did he also look past some of the other aspects?
“Not bad… Its defense is comparable to that of heavy armor.”
Academician Xu nodded repeatedly, his expression full of admiration.
It was already not easy for a graduate student in his thirties to achieve such high defense in standard armor. Not to mention, his armor only weighed 1.5 kilograms. That was enough to prove skills in forging.
“Let’s look at the performance of each attribute. If they remain outstanding, it will be a perfect improvement!” Professor Liu said in excitement.
Zhou Ning immediately did as she was told. She was ready for the results of the simulation.
Chu Qingyan, who was standing in front of the crowd, was still calm as if he had expected his armor’s result to crush the ninth-generation combat suit.
His demeanor was completely different from the two people who had previously walked onto the stage.
Wei Lan narrowed his eyes slightly. Right then, his mood was also somewhat fluctuating. It was as though he had found a good seedling in the garden.
[The armor’s data has been calculated and listed.
[Comfort – Improved Model: 67 points, Ninth Generation: 61 points.
[Perspiration Absorption – Improved Model: 66 points, Ninth Generation: 57 points.
[Breathability – Improved Model: 73 points, Ninth Generation: 70 points.
[Stain Resistance – Improved Model: 85 points, Ninth Generation: 62 points.
[Stealth – Improved Model: 72 points, Ninth Generation: 72 points.
[Battle Evaluation – Improved Model: 78 points, Ninth Generation: 70 points.]
Those who had prepared in advance were surprised by such an excellent data evaluation.
It was especially so for Lai Hua in second place. He had used four-groove fabric to create excellent air permeability, but his competition had used nylon to achieve the same effect. It was simply unbelievable!
Zhang Yuan, who was waiting to go on stage, felt great pressure at this point.
Clap clap clap!
Professor Liu immediately stood up and clapped when he saw the results. He was not stingy with his praise.
