Body Armour Vests of the British Army | 1940 – 2016

Body Armour

In 1940, the first Body Armour vest for the British Army was designed, which would later go onto see service in the three major Airborne Operations undertaken in 1944 and 1945. Not only did it offer something new for the Army, but it also laid the foundations for future designs, including I.N.I.B.A., C.B.A. and the Osprey vests. In this video, I detail the History of all these vests right up to the withdrawal from service of the Osprey Mk4 Body Armour Vest in 2016.
