SegmentNext - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain features a Fulton Recovery System to exfiltrate soldiers from the battlefield. However, did you know? That the system was used by the CIA during World War II?
Yup. Batman used in the Dark Knight, too.
well, i never knew that!
You would be surprised to know what our governments and various agencies have been up to. Lol. Another good read is the MK ultra program.
Fulton System is real here is proof: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Good now play Metal Gear Solid 5 knowing that this technology existed.
Lol, that video is full of MGS players hahahah.
The first time this system was introduced in the series was in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, one of the best games in the series and it was for PSP.
That said, it was mentioned briefly in MGS3
Which was also used by Snake as well although not seen.
Actually guys, it was more than mentioned in Snack Eater. Snake was extracted from the failed Virtuous Mission via Fulton recovery system.
Really? I don't remember that part.
Really? "Snack Eater"? hahah
It was Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops that had the user activated Fulton system before MGS:PW. To my knowledge you couldnt use it to extract other soldiers, it only allowed players to leave the mission area without receiving further injury.
WW2 ended 1945. CIA formed 1947. Did they use time travel as well?
This !! So good :)! But they were basically OSS,.. And Skyhook was basically in the 50's,.. but they did experiment with pickups before
Isn't cold war a part of WWII as well?
Well MGS Fulton does not actually work the same,.. Real Fulton is just a balloon on a string that plane hooks from the front, severs balloon and the thing is pulled to a plane at the rear,.. Mgs Fulton basically accelerates you just vertically,.. We don't actually know how it is supposed to work It is cool as hell and fast
It's supposed to work the same but you just don't see the part where they fly by and extract it.
Why is everyone talking about the Fulton like its something new... Snake used it in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater its how they recovered him from the virtuous mission.... The Fulton was also in Peace walker and physically had the balloon just like Phantom Pain... It's even in media, an episode of The Unit even uses them......
Why does it bother you? Or are you just trying to be a hipster and show off your impressive knowledge of fultonry in the media? I played snake eater, dont remember the fulton in the slightest. Never played peace walker (pretty sure most people haven't). Never saw the unit (and I watch a lot of tv) Ive only ever seen it in batman, and that was a movie, not a game. It's not like some common, widely known thing. And it's probably only the second time ever in a game where it's been implemented as a gameplay feature. I hate it when someone takes something obscure and speaks as if the people who haven't heard of it or think it's new and cool are clueless morons. Like we're supposed to be impressed with your knowledge of little known facts and treat you like some godly genius and hang on every word you say. So juvenile.
so this whole proccess happenes more than 20 time in MGSV mission ?! and keeping tension on the wire and making sure the cow don't fall off xD
Fascinating since the CIA didn't exist until 1947, and WWII ended in 1945.
Time for more people to learn their history me thinks
The Air Force was apart of the army during WWll.
