Re: Why the lack of personal protection?

BTW just to go along with the BA stopping high velocity rounds, thats not BA's only role.

A large % of casualties in combat come from low velocity fragmentation injuries, rock chips, spalling from metal of various sorts ect.
Hell the found a decent amount of injuries in Afghanistan came from grass/plant debris getting into the eye, it's one of the reasons eyepro is mandatory out and about now.

How about those awkward ankle length leather-like boots they wear even in an Ar-558 situation.
