Very Cool, if equuipment such as this does indeed make it into military service it will be with the maintenance and logistics folks first.

i was thinking putting class iv armour on it and having a m2 hb as a personal weapon..
dunno what youd use as a powerpack, maybe fuelcell or a little diesel

I think you are pretty much right on the money, Andy. Organizing fire teams of troops equipped with conventional weapons and armor around on heavy trooper equipped as you describe would be a devastating combination. I can't help fantasizing about the following weapon options as well.
40mm automatic grenade launcher
25mm automatic grenade launcher
either of above weapons with coax M240
It would also be a boon for ATGM teams, making it easier to hump the launcher, also for an ATRL gunner to be able to shrug off machinegun fire or near misses by HE rounds fired against them in defense would give them greatly increased lethality.
