Ok, so in terms of impact damage, it isn't that great of a system.
What about in terms of physiologically harmfull?
Do we have any pilots on the list? What's average G tolerance for
an untrained (non pilot) person? 6g? I know with proper training a
pilot can make 9g without a problem. I'd like to know how the body
responds to taking g's over time but don't know what to google for.
And the swing from +6g to -6g is a *really* ugly rollercoaster to
ride in combat gear or full vac gear. You might vomit, pass out
and then check out.
