Lol, was watching a documentary regarding it on discovery 2 mins ago.
apparrently it's not very durable under heat and humidity I think.
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
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 ()
i pity ppl who wear this for route march

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.. -_-"
