What is the Hulkbuster Armor (Model 14)?



The Hulkbuster is a famous Iron Man armor.
The Hulkbuster Armor is not actual independent Armor.  It is a modular armor that fits around the other Iron Man armors particularly the Mark II and Mark IV armors.  The added exoskeleton is designed for Iron Man to battle the Hulk.  The Hulkbuster Armor will appear in the movie Avengers: Age of Ultron.  For still unrevealed reasons Iron Man will don the suit to battle the Hulk in what appears like Africa.

History:
First appearance  Iron Man #304 in May 1994


Tony Stark had long worried about a confrontation with the Hulk and had designed the Hulkbuster as a mechanism to deal with the potential threat of a rampaging Hulk.

The Hulk is angered by the creation of Gamma bombs by Stark industries.  Stark tries to explain that it was part of many unethical things done when the company was under the control of Stane.  Hulk wants to rampage though and so Stark pulls out the Hulkbuster and manages to battle Hulk to somewhat of a standstill.  At least to the point where he can be reasoned with.

Armor Capabilities:
The armor adds immense strength to the suit it is capable of lifting 175 Tons.
The armor is coated in impact resistant carbon composite plating that greatly reduces damage from powerful blows.
The armor has an anchoring system that allows it stay grounded even when being pushed or pummeled by immense force.

The armor also has specific sensors added to detect gamma radiation to allow it to seek out the Hulk.

The armor also has more powerful repulsor blasts.  It can also fire missiles and freezing blasts called frost charges.

The Arc reactor in its chest can also be used to fire a powerful Unibeam blast.  As this depletes the suit of much of its power and may or may stop the Hulk it is kind of a last ditch weapon.

The Hulkbuster in the MCU:

You can see part of the slugfest between Hulk and Hulkbuster in the link below:
Hulk vs Hulkbuster in Avengers Age of Ultron

The design of the Hulkbuster looks fairly consistent with its comic versions.  With a few minor differences.  The comic version had a massive arc reactor in its chest.  While this one sports two arc reactors in its shins/knees and a third in its chest.


In this shot it also seems to use an added punch device that seems to counter the force of the Hulk's blows.
