Wasn't this obvious for anyone able to put 2 + 2 together? War Machine armour was delivered to a US air force base by Rhodey in Iron Man 2.... it's now painted with colours of the USA... what a goddamn surprise.
Im with Superbeast on this it was pretty obvious (or at least I guessed as much) that it was the Mark 2.
Now wether Rhodey is still piloting it if they have given it to someone else! Thats a better question. Weird how the military can reassign their property to someone they see as more loyal.
EDIT: read more of the thread. Superbeast and me are having the same thoughts on this thing It appears!
A strange article, I don't know of anyone who actually thought it was going to be the Iron Patriot or Norman Osborn, but rather that it was going to be the movieverse's version of the Iron Patriot...which is something I don't think has been debunked.
