Are there any rules (modern or future + 40) that includes robots and exo-skeletons?

I know of Infinity but was wondering whether there is anything a bit less in the future.

thank you

Depends on what sort of game you want. I'd recommend these two.

The Galactic Heroes version of Fistful of Lead would work.


For something more Cyberpunk, I'd recommend Hardwired.

Tomorrow's War should cover what you are looking for. Available in hard cover and PDF. link
Abe Books has it discounted. link
There are several online reviews of the rules.

While I have the rules, I actually play FfoL Galactic Heroes.

Another option would be Future War Commander combined with Cold War Commander.

Has Exo armor (external muscle enhancement) and Battle Tactical Armor – think medieval full plate with power, sealed environment and comms.
They are not crunchy rules, it's more a light RPG where the story is more important than counting hit dice.
