Army Tests Body Armor Tailored For Female Soldiers

19 Sep

Summary:

Members of a female engagement team from the 101st Airborne Division deploying to Afghanistan will field test the first Army body armor that is shorter and better tailored specifically to fit women’s physiques. These women will be directly interacting with Afghan women during the coming deployment, and they have been equipped with the female prototypes of the newest generation of Army tactical vests.
