Avatar 1, 2 & 3

The Mitsubishi MK-6 Amplified Mobility Platform (or "AMP" suit) is a distant descendant of the first military exoskeletons used on Earth in the mid-21st century. It was improved during military service in a myriad of combat theaters – from arctic to jungle to desert – over the decades. Sealed and pressurized models for toxic environments were developed as well. The suit is used extensively on the Moon and Mars colonies (where they are powered by fuel cells and/or monopropellant ceramic turbines). Its well-tested capabilities have proved invaluable in the deadly environment of Pandora. The Na'vi name for it roughly translates as "shield that walks" or "not-demon walking".

AMP suits are seen in many parts of the film, where they are assigned mainly to base defense and patrol duties. Jake Sully is assigned to Col. Quaritch and finds him at the hangar ready to enter and activate his AMP suit.

In the Assault on the Tree of Souls, Col. Quaritch's forces used small arms and 30mm cannon-armed AMP suits to cut down Na'vi warriors and their direhorse mounts, but were unable to kill the near-bulletproof hammerhead titanotheres as they charged, wiping out the entire AMP suit complement. Lyle Wainfleet was one of the RDA soldiers killed while in his AMP suit.

When Jake Sully damaged Quaritch's Dragon Assault Ship (during the final battle), Quaritch escaped in his AMP suit before the ship crashed. During his journey alone to destroy the Tree of Souls, he came across Jake's avatar link unit. He attempted to kill Jake's human form but was challenged by Neytiri, riding a thanator, and later Jake (in his avatar form). With his AMP suit's rifle destroyed, Quaritch unsheathed the suit's combat knife and killed the thanator, trapping Neytiri under its lifeless body. Interrupted by Jake in turn, the two engaged one another in combat. Quaritch eventually gained the upper hand when he breached the link shack, exposing Jake's human body to the toxic atmosphere. Ready to kill Jake's avatar with his own Na'vi knife, Quaritch died when Neytiri shot two arrows into his exposed torso. The AMP suit was largely unharmed, aside from a damaged sensor display, pilot seat and canopy.
