Check this link out. It has an article about the new liquid body armor.

Sounds like some pretty cool stuff. This article even explains how it works to some degree.

I took the neck protection off of my body armor because it restricted my movement too much. I figured that my neck was a small enough target anyway, and that neck protection wouldn't do too much anyway. But I wasn't in combat, it was just training. Maybe that factored into my decision as well. Even if I did go to combat I don't think that I would leave the neck protection on anyway, but Joe is stupid.

Tha's not safe. What if u on a mission and a sniper spots u while ur talking to your men. I know it bothers u but try and if not then be careful. Don't need another soldier havin a funneral.

Armor has always been a trade-off between mobility and protection, and although we are getting closer and closer to compromise between the two, until it becomes a working reality, there will always be some unprotected areas, No MERCY.

The neck protection wouldn't stop a 5.56mm or 7.62mm bullet. It's for frags and such.

Ok, if a sniper spots me, he can just as easily shoot me in the face or in the head. From a close range a K-pot WILL NOT stop even a 5.56.

Not to mention the impact of the bullet would most likely snap your neck if it hit the helmet.

Not my neck, I am too much of a stud. In fact I don't even know why they gave IBA for live fires, bullets just bounce right off.
