prototypes

#1
I have heard both here & elsewhere that:

Our current issue boots were sold to the MOD using a high quality sample which was much superior to the design that entered service.

Also the same for the Renault Boughton

Alos the same for the SA-80

Are these all true?
Any more examples
Is this common practice in defence Procurement?

Its fairly common in all walks of life, We specify metal reinforced window sashes and frames, thats what we see as a sample and give approval of....that isn't always what gets installed.
