|Iron Patriot (armor)|
|Appeared in||Iron Man 3|
After the Battle in New York, Rhodey has his War Machine armor upgraded by A.I.M. and painted in a red, silver and blue patriotic design. Iron Patriot then becomes the Army's top soldier to dangerous fights overseas, particularly against the Ten Rings. However the new suit immediately became the source of laughter from Stark due to it's paint job. The Patriot was used to find a possible transmission source, both in Pakistan but were both dead ends. The second one however was a ruse to kidnap the Iron Patriot for Aldrich Killian. Rhodey (with the Patriot still on) was taken to Killian's base were he used his Extremis powers to force Rhodey out of it but Eric Savin stole it used to enter Air Force One.
Once on board he killed the presidential guard and and kidnap President Ellis himself. Savin took off the armor, and locked Ellis inside. The armor then flew Ellis to Killian's base at the Miami port. Ellis was chained up inside the armor, but was rescued by Rhodes. When Ellis was rescued, Rhodes reclaimed the armor. As Tony Stark destroyed all of his Iron Man suits, leaving the Iron Patriot as the only known remaining armor.
Powers and Abilities
The armor has the same systems seen in its two predecessor models, the Mark II - computer system with extensive sensor systems, Global Positioning System, in-armor communicator\phone, repulsors installed on each hand, Thruster Boots - and War Machine - a shoulder-mounted gatling gun and and various concealed weaponry.
The Iron Patriot was shown to be vulnerable to extreme heat. When Aldrich Killian used his Extremis powers to heat the suit, the suit opened itself and ejected Rhodes.

To be added

- Despite going by the Iron Patriot, Rhodes still preferred the War Machine moniker, using it in his A.I.M. login and password.
- As of the conclusion of Iron Man 3, the Iron Patroit suit is the only armor remaining active after Stark destroyed his existing armory.
