You know, this makes me wonder about the actual viability of attaching heavy cybernetic limbs that way multiple times more than flesh and blood limbs to the human skeleton. We all know that the 6 Million Dollar Man and Woman did things that were actually ridiculous because the rest of the body couldn't support what their cybernetic limbs were capable of.

She has a complete combat system which means her limbs are connected not by her body alone.

I can see it has bracing at the major joints, but there is still one significant weak point..

..her spine is not reinforced as well. You might want to consider adding that to your X-ray view.

Just my opinion though, it's still quite aesthetically.. unpleasing. Something a touch more normal looking would go much better, and could still be combat effective.

It... depends on what sort of 'metal' the cyber-components are made out of, and the human spine is a lot stronger than most people think

And there was a reason why they replaced _both_ legs and only _one_ arm: both legs to prevent running in a circle ( :P ) and one arm so that they have _some_ sort of limiter on what they do, even if it's psychological

Well, based upon the books that the Six Million Dollar Man was based upon, they had to reinforce his spine, pelvis, one shoulder and added Kevlar reinforcement strands for the "floating" bones in the shoulder.

As to the artificial limbs, I figure that they are a form of foamed composition plastics and carbon fiber, coated with a layer of nickle chromium steel alloy, to protect the composite from excessive wear in the field.
