Looking for protective plates for UK Body Armour

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by viceroy, Jun 9, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is NOT for the current issue Osprey but the previous, much liked version with two simple armour plates.

    The vests are sold all over the place (military surplus etc) but the the plates are notoriously difficult to come by, any thoughts as to where they are sold?

    How about complete Ospreys (again, with the protective kevlar plates)?

    Thanks, cheers.

  2. Why? Want to rob a bank?
     
  3. 100 quid and a set is yours.
     
  4. Mine are signed by Lucy Pinder!
     
  5. I was under the impression that the ballistic plates were restricted items!
     
  6. I'm a "fucking civvy cunt" (as the QM called me last week) & I was "issued" a set of Osprey! Fair enough I am in the stan-pit, but I never signed for the buggers.

  8. Viceroy, you refer to ECBA as "Much liked"?

    By who?! They must have been mental.
     
  9. you're modplod or a journo and fishing for some info and i claim my ten pounds,
     
  10. So buy some off Ebay then trigger.

    Osprey is in limited supply and any sets you buy will most likely be stolen; thus you're depriving people who need the kit to save their life of it so it can go on your wall.

    You sound peculiar :)
     
  11. He wasn't looking for Osprey...
     
  12.  
  13. ill sell you a piece of roll mat cut to the size of the plate, that might be the prefered armour you speak of?
