Mini GunsEdit

The armor is also equipped with one mini gun on each gauntlet, just like the Mark XIII, Mark 18, Mark 22, and War Machine Mark 2 armors.


Iron Man 3Edit

In response To "The Mandarin's Lessons", the armor was rebranded by A.I.M., who gave it a "patriotic" paint job . 

After "The Mandarin" kills a man as part of a "lesson" for the President, Rhodes is sent in the armor to hunt him down. Going to several wrong locations, he encounters an Extremis soldier who overpowers him.

Aldrich Killian used his powers to try to force Rhodes out of the armor and he finally ejects because the armor can't take any more heat damage, and is knocked out by Savin after dodging Killian's "fire breath". Eric Savin takes control of the armor and flies to Air Force One, pretending to be Rhodes in order to board it and capture the President. In the armor, Savin is more than a match for the President's bodyguards and kills several  of them before ejecting and sending the President to Killian in the armor.

The President is later trapped in the armor and hung above an impounded oil tanker to be burned alive on national TV, but Rhodes, Tony Stark and the Iron Legion arrive to help.

Rhodes manages to reach the President and uses one of the armor's repulsors to break a cable holding it up and swing to safety. Afterwards, Rhodes completely frees the armor, reclaims it (after telling the President he looks good wearing it) and uses it to fly the President to safety. The Iron Patriot armor has no other part in the final battle and is not seen again afterwards.
