A large bull's eye on the chest would be appropriate.

I was thinking, the military applications of this must be pretty limited. The guy in the jetpack looks pretty helpless while in transit.

One would have to find some way of keeping a landing site clear while your jet pack infantry hop over, ditch the jet packs and unsling their weapons. Or one could just use a helicopter.

The main application for jet packs I think is for search and rescue in mountainous areas.
