    any vids of human testing?
    im just thinking that even though the bullets dont pass through, you're bound to get more injured than just a brusing

    but still even if a grenade does explode under a body with this armor eyes,limbs, will still be bombed due to the area effect isn't it and also in real time battle heads are still not covered, so if one sniper were to aim for head area isn't that as good as having nothing? But never the less it is still very effective and lots of people would be saved by this new equipment

    if there really was a person inside the armor in the grenade test then he would have massive internal injuries not to mention having his head blown off

    then again, the test was to see how much force the armor can resist; you could always throw your armor on a grenade or mine or something in real life

    anyway heads are HARD to aim at; its much easier to aim at a person's body

    remember that armor is meant to stop bullets, not EXPLOSIONS ()

    LBV ? what's LBV ?

    yea, unless they create some forcefield like the shield grenade (?) in Halo 3, using Dragon Armor to guard checkpoints are futile..

    damn, those soldiers guarding checkpoints in Middle East must've hang on dear life everyday, and thank God if they're still alive at the end of the day.. -_-"
