Supersoldier 2020 will have exoskeleton, robot helpers, pathogen immunity, some doctor assisted regeneration
Supersoldiers of the 2020s will be a little bit Iron man with HULC and XOS exoskeletons. They will have some wall crawling (Spiderman like) capability from the Z-Man program (attachable pads with magnets and microsplines).
They will be using a lot more ground and flying robot support. They will have flying hummers.
They will have better guns with better range, smart bullets/grenades when needed and computers and sensors to improve the accuracy of soldiers and snipers.
They will have medical enhancement to be resistant to infections and to allow them to be restored from more severe injuries.
There will also be safer SARM steroids and myostatin inhibitors which should allow safe and effective enhancement of physical strength for millions of people (soldiers and civilians). It will be like today where people use steroids and some training dedication to get closer to the top tiers of athletic performance and top athletes use them to get to record breaking performance except there will not be the negative side effects (or far fewer side effects) and more people will use them.
