yeh what about the manufacturer or the model?
Point Blank is the main manufacturer, model is called the Interceptor IBA or OTV (not sure which of those is the actual manufacturer designation but it is commonly called both)
Now they have the new sapi plates though "E-Sapi" and the side plates as well.
that dragonskin stuff looks pretty fly
Live fire testing of the dragon skin. Takes 30rounds of 7.62x39mm then 120+ rounds of 9mm.
i watched those earlier today and was like
...The dragonskin in test-bed units got recalled due to manufacture defects. . .
It's made of Kevlar, is it? Well, can it really stop a rifle bullet? I'm asking cause I saw this vid (like most of you propably) where some durka shot an Army guy and he stood right back up.
kevlar and camo lol
I don't know about a rifle, but the kevlar alone can stop a 45 round from a pistol
even a 7.62?
There are ceramic plates in the vest and yes it can stop 7.62.
If it can stop a 7.62, would a 5.56 even knock you down?
the round still has a set amount of kinetic energy. it's still going to feel like a sledgehammer to the chest.
not really... It would help aswell if the armor would at least slow it down.
Nono, he is saying the armor wouldn't be pointless EVEN if it only slowed bullets down.
Exit wounds are always the worst, so I agree with this.
To conserve money, the military buys a complete set of body armor, and splits it in two. They send the back plates to the Army, and the front plates to the Marines.
Ranger lol i'm sorry --- is that more appropriate?!
I thought a hard stare from a marine would stop bullets?
IBAs suck ass
you sir are a fucking idiot. that is all.
