Mission Ready details Flex9Armor orders
Canada's Mission Ready Services has announced that its Flex9Armor tactical armour will be delivered to an unnamed international military customer and is being evaluated by a number of European NATO countries.
Developed through the company’s subsidiary called Protect the Force (PTF) in cooperation with the US military, Flex9Armor is comprised of protective garments that provide ballistic protection while maintaining lightweight and flexible characteristics.
Traditional armour lacks coverage of the arms, chest and neck region of the body, and protection for these areas adds weight and reduces mobility. The uniform incorporates NIJ Level II and IIIA body armour panels into a breathable anti-microbial material that is 30% lighter than conventional armour.
PTF is currently working with more than 70 US federal, state and local law enforcement agencies at various stages of the evaluation and purchasing process.
