Previous Armor: War Machine armor (Mark II)
After the Battle in New York, Rhodey had his armor upgraded by A.I.M. and painted in a patriotic red, silver and blue design. It was then dubbed Iron Patriot, and becomes the US Army's top weapon in dangerous fights overseas, particularly against the Ten Rings. However, the new suit immediately became the source of laughter from Stark and the media due to its paint job. The Patriot was used to find two possible transmission sources (both in Pakistan), but were both dead ends. The second one, however, was a ruse to kidnap the Iron Patriot for Aldrich Killian. Rhodey (still wearing the armor) was taken to Killian's base were he used his Extremis powers to force Rhodey out of it, so that the suit could be used for Killian's plans. Eric Savin used the armor to enter Air Force One.
Once aboard, he killed the presidential guard and kidnapped 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, the Iron Patriot was left 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.

Behind the scenes
To be added
- In the comics, the Iron Patriot armor is used by Norman Osborn, but Osborn is part of the Spider-Man franchise, the rights of the characters are owned by Sony. The Iron Patriot is instead an upgraded version of the War Machine suit with an American flag motif to resemble Captain America.
- Despite going by the Iron Patriot, Rhodes still preferred the War Machine moniker, using it as 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.
