Clearly. But what sort of tribute, and why?
It's without doubt based on the Iron Patriot design. Identical. But Iron Patriot is obviously an entirely different (and unusable) character ffrom the comics (i.e., Norman Osborn) that was done as an homage (parody) of Cap, who is (was) dead. *This* armor is done as an homage to a Cap who is still very much alive in the MCU, so the backstory behind the design has to be entirely different than Osborn's.
And with this clear reference to Cap, makes me wonder how they'll be able to do it *without* actually including a cameo by Cap himself.
