The Next Iteration of Combat Armor

Special thanks 1MOA Solutions for bringing this ballistic upgrade to our attention. Rumors that Kolt Raynor could kick Mandalore the Preserver‘s ass are unconfirmed, but highly probable.

“The announcement that the Army is planning to issue Soldiers “Kevlar Underpants” lead to some comments concerning how far the military will go to armor dismounted troops. We’ve already seen the infamous DAPS and “nut flap” and I say that’s skip all that BS and do it right. Mandalorian armor for everyone. Yeah, that’s right…Boba Fett style. I’ve got mine already!” -Adam

The Mandalorians wear the finest armor blood can buy.” Count Dooku

    Hey,

    I know this websites a bit of fun so sorry to get heavy.
    Reference the following

    Being an Army nurse by trade and hearing/seeing of young infanteers (some still in there teen years) coming back after being caught up in an IED and losing their genetalia, I welcome any up-armouring of that area.

    Just saying.

    I like the idea of creating a real set of Mandalorian armor, only problem with the design is that there are an awful lot of gaps for shrapnel and bullets to get into. I wonder how well it would work if you had a kevlar vest base then the armor made of some form of ceramic armor plate wrapped in kevlar on top? I don’t think that our material science is there quite yet but I imagine that in another 10 – 20 years we could be fielding something like Mandalorian armor.
