get em the best
There’s a bit of controversy going on in the Army over the type of body armor being used.
Currently, according to my many inside sources, the Army uses a type of body armor called the Interceptor. It consists of rigid plates of armor that’s supposed to stop most bullets. And according to the Army it’s the best there is even though it leaves some parts of the body unprotected.
But there’s another type of armor called Dragon Skin that covers the wearer’s body like chain mail and offers up more protection. Even the cat that invented the Interceptor armor concedes that Dragon Skin is the best he’s ever seen and if he was going into combat that’s what he would wear.
But the Army called bullshit on Dragon Skin and this was before they even tested it. And when they did test it the cat whom they paid to evaluate Dragon Skin over a seven year period was told not to show up for the test.
I should also add that this same cat gave Dragon Skin a positive evaluation and said it was superior to anything he’s ever seen. He thinks that Dragon Skin is being given the bum’s rush by the Army because it came from the private sector instead of from the military.
But NBC has found out that some Army generals are using it along with the CIA but not the grunts slogging in the muck.
Now the reason this story attracted my attention is that one night on the Discovery Channel the show Future Weapons was on. This is the show where this ex Navy Seal gets to check out the newest and the best shit the military has to offer.
Wither it’s some shit still in development or actually being used by the military he usually asks the right questions and gets to play with whatever he’s being shown.
And one show dedicated a lot of time to Dragon Armor and I thought it was the shit.
During the segment everything but the kitchen sink was thrown at a mannequin strapped into the Dragon Armor. Fuck, this cat had a table loaded with various types of assault weapons and none of em even came close to penetrating the Dragon Armor.
And at the end for shit and grins they threw the armor wearing mannequin on top of a field grenade and set that muthafucker off and still no penetration.
All I’m saying is that when the muthafucker is shown on national television where everyone can see how truly badass it is, maybe the Army needs to rethink their stance.
