Why are all body armor vests?
Bulletproof vests are also called bulletproof vests. The place where it can provide protection is extremely limited, only the area in front of you. So since body armor can be effective bulletproof, why not protect both arms and legs? If this is done, can the soldiers be effectively protected? However, the reality is very cruel. If the body armor protects the limbs of the soldiers, it is likely to increase the casualty rate of the soldiers.
Modern body armor is still in its infancy. No matter whether it is a flapper type or a Kevlar, it can’t guarantee safety absolutely. Most of the time, they can only resist stray bullets or debris damage. If a soldier wears a body armor and is shot by the enemy head-on, no matter how tightly he protects, he cannot guarantee his safety. Of course, human beings have the conditions to create a body armor that can withstand any bullet damage. If a steel plate of a few centimeters thick is used for protection, it is impossible for a bullet to penetrate the body armor, but the soldier will definitely be unable to move after wearing this body armor. Up.
Even if the bulletproof vests that can only partially defend against bullets are worn on the body, it will affect the soldiers' actions. If the soldiers' limbs are protected with these bulletproof vests, the soldiers' hands and feet may not be able to move normally. Flapper bulletproof vests will bring a great burden to soldiers, and Kevlar's bulletproof vests will also restrict soldiers' actions to a certain extent. Originally, body armor was used to prevent bullet fragments. The thing that caused the most casualties on the battlefield was shells. Body armor and helmets actually serve this purpose.
Of course, there is another important reason. The head and human torso are the most important parts of the body. Once these two places are attacked, it will be fatal in all likelihood. The limbs are different. Even if he is shot, the probability of surviving is still very high. Instead of wearing a body armor that prevents your movements to protect your limbs, it is better to increase your flexibility and increase your chances of survival through flexible tactical movements. The fighters' tactical movements are all done by the limbs. If the limbs are wrapped, it is difficult to complete the tactical movements. Even the soft body armor will slow down the fighters' movements. Wearing more protective gear, because too hot will also cause a huge consumption of physical strength, especially when worn on the legs, the effect is greater, more force and more sweat are required.
With the continued development of science and technology in the future, the body armor will definitely become more and more advanced. Perhaps the soldiers will fight like future soldiers, and the kinetic rifle will be useless. Of course, unless the world is truly peaceful, there will be guns that can break defenses, and the battle between spears and shields will never end.
