The British armed forces are to get new body armour and helmets this autumn. More than 10,000 enhanced Mark 7 helmets and the new Osprey Assault body armour have been ordered. It is hoped the new lighter kit will go some way to answering soldiers complaints about heavy or ill fitting armour.


BBC

Like the thread the other day it's nice to see they are at last spending some cash on new and updated equipment for our troops, although there does seem to be large areas of the head and body left exposed by the armour and helmet? also there surely has to be questions raised about whether the new equipment will actually make it into the hands of our troops when they are needed? (lets not forget we lost a few troops in Iraq due to them not getting body armour and equipment they needed at the time?)
