The US is already (slowly) transitioning to Nomex coveralls for all
personnel on missions. We are quite aware that burns are one of the
primary types of injury inflicted on the modern battlefield. As they
put it, all IED blasts involve a fireball.
I have a hard time believing that armies 200 years in the future are
going to be less capable than today.
