“Chu Qingyan, the battle armor you’ve forged has greatly satisfied the various requirements of the commission. Not only is it light, but it also provides outstanding defense and battle support. It’s pretty much ingenious!”
Academician Xu also had a look of amazement on his face. “I have to say, although the armor you’ve forged is not exceptional in terms of stealth or concealment, it has greatly improved on other indicators. The younger generation is truly formidable!”
Hearing praises from the two of them, Zhou Ning could not help but clap her hands.
At the beginning of the test, the practicality of Chu Qingyan’s equipment had already amazed her. It would definitely shine in the subsequent reviews. Everything was as she had expected.
‘It’s just that…’
With that thought, she turned her head to look at Wu Mo in the team. She noticed that he still seemed as calm as ever. She could not help but wonder if he had made sufficient preparations, or if he had resigned himself to riding it out.
Although the equipment that Wu Mo provided during the test yesterday was not bad, it barely scored above the passing mark. It was not on Chu Qingyan’s level at all.
“Haha… Looks like my trip this time hasn’t been in vain. The battle armor provided by Chu Qingyan has reached my expectations perfectly whether it’s in terms of lightness, comfort, or defense. It will definitely be used by many warriors once it is mass-produced in the future! Moreover, Qingyan is still so young. There is still room for improvement. Not bad! Haha!”
Wei Lan was overjoyed. He was surprised by Chu Qingyan’s forging skills and unyielding character.
He was prepared to go through the motions this time. After all, many excellent works had appeared in the previous test group. However, he did not expect that someone here would be a breath of fresh air and surprise him!
The equipment that Chu Qingyan had forged was no worse than the works of those old researchers. Some of his techniques were even more suitable.
Although Wei Lan had a broad vision, a young genius like him was still rare.
In the end, with Minister Wei’s permission, Chu Qingyan’s light brown armor underwent a final density test. As expected, the energy inside was extremely stable, and it was on a high-quality level.
In the field of forging, one-star to three-star blacksmiths were beginners. They could mostly forge ordinary iron weapons or Rare-grade ones.
Four-star to six-star blacksmiths had intermediate skills, and they could forge Premium-grade, as well as Epic-grade, equipment.
However, even if they reached the level of five stars, the failure rate of forging Premium-grade equipment would still be no less than 40%. Chu Qingyan’s ability to succeed in one go was enough to show how powerful his foundation was.
After passing the three tests, Chu Qingyan became the only member who had passed so far.
However, the tests were not over. Seeing that there were still two graduate students left, Minister Wei Lan felt that he could give them a chance. After all, everyone had worked hard for two to three months just for this day. If he were to make hurried conclusions about them, it would inevitably affect their enthusiasm.
“Next, Zhang Yuan.”
It was not intentional or random. Wu Mo had actually been the last one to be photographed. Although the first three tests only took about ten minutes, it still made him feel like he had waited for a long time.
“Hehe, it’s finally my turn!”
Zhang Yuan stood out proudly and walked to the table quickly.
He placed his brown bag on the table, unzipped it, and took out his work with pride.
Everyone subconsciously looked over, and they were instantly shocked by the armor’s appearance.
It was a grass-green armor. The surface of its fabric was soft and elastic, and it looked very thin. It seemed to weigh less than a kilogram!
There were many patterns of arrays on the armor’s surface, and there appeared to be traces of nesting.
The green glow made the entire armor look extremely strange.
However, the most eye-catching thing was the apparent lack of a multi-functional module!
Everyone was shocked, and the entire testing ground fell into silence.
‘It’s actually lighter than the Invisibility Armor that I forged. Did he utilize more advanced technology?”
Wu Mo was a little puzzled, but he subconsciously regarded Zhang Yuan as his opponent because someone who could replace the battle module without relying on the Research Department’s crystal was probably a big shot.
Furthermore, the surface of his armor was smooth, and there was not even a single pocket. It was really surprising.
Rather than calling it armor, it was more like an ordinary piece of clothing.
“This is the work that you’ve forged?” Wei Lan was a little incredulous as he asked tentatively.
“Yes, leader. This is the armor that I have forged. It’s made of aramid fiber, and it’s heat-resistant. It also has an outstanding defense. I used the crisscrossing grid technique to ensure that the armor still has excellent defense without a steel body’s energy absorption.”
Zhang Yuan introduced his work boldly. He had spent a lot of effort on the armor and incorporated a lot of advanced technology. In terms of its lightweight and comfort, he could easily destroy all the other armors.
The other armors needed to be equipped with multi-functional battle modules and required steel materials to increase their defensive power, but he only needed to use fabric to achieve the same effect. That was the ultimate lightweight performance.
One could say that no one else could make armor that was less than a kilogram.
Although it seemed like he was showing off at times, Zhang Yuan did not think that there was anything wrong with his actions.
“Gasp… Zhang Yuan, this suit of yours can’t be called armor anymore, can it? It doesn’t even have the protection of a basic steel body,” Professor Liu rubbed his eyes and said with uncertainty.
“Don’t worry, Professor. Although my armor doesn’t have a thick and heavy steel body, it can still achieve excellent defense with just cloth.”
Zhang Yuan answered confidently, but the people around him still refused to believe him.
Fabric was very fragile. It could not possibly reach the hardness and defense of steel.
“While your innovation this time is very bold, I would like to make it clear in advance that if its attributes don’t measure up, it will still be considered a failure,” Academician Xu immediately said.
He wanted Zhang Yuan to keep a low profile and not be too full of himself.
It was a good thing for the young to be innovative, but they were always thinking of becoming era-defining pioneers. How could it be that easy?
“Academician Xu, don’t worry. I have great confidence in my aramid material.”
Zhang Yuan was still full of conviction, and he did not listen to Academician Xu at all.
Wei Lan frowned slightly. He wanted to say something, but seeing the arrogance of the team member in front of him, he decided against it.
“Go ahead and test its defense.”
He waved his hand.
Zhou Ning then went forward to take the armor. When she felt the armor’s actual weight, the surprise on her face became even greater!
It was only a little heavier than a shirt. It did not seem like combat armor at all.
With that thought… she approached the equipment for the defense test and threw Zhang Yuan’s armor into it.
