A type of body armor
developed by Pinnacle Armor
of Fresno, California. It utilizes a pattern
of discs thar overlap like
dragon scales, hence the name. The scale pattern
of this vest
it flexible, unlike the current body armor issued
to US troops, the Interceptor, which utilizes rectangular ceramic plates inserted into
pouches on the vest
Although Dragon Skin has repeatedly
been shown as superior to the Interceptor, it has not been adopted due to corruption & bureaucracy in the US military supply system.
Soldiers were told that if they use any body armor
the Interceptor, they lose their $400,000 life insurance policy. Interestingly, the CEO of the company that makes
the Interceptor threw a $10 million Bar Mitzvah for one of his children. Hmmm....
I saw Dragon Skin armor on the military channel. It's badass.
