I found this photo a few months back. The caption (and obviously the cammo pattern) describe it to be the new upcoming Army issued body armor aptly named: the Improved Outer Tactical Vest, or, IOTV.

But, you never know when these new armors will make it into the field. Many times, they stay in the testing phases forever. Or, sometimes they aren't issued due to cost...

But, tonight, I found this photo of a soldier in Iraq:

Yes-- it is now officially in use! So, that begs the question: who's gonna make it first?

It took almost two years after the Marine Spartan Armoro came out before we saw it in 1/6-- and from a very new company (Saturday Toys) at that!

Will it be months? A year? Years!?! Will this replace the Interceptor?

Only time will answer these questions, I suppose. Maybe someone will be brave enough to attempt to make their own. Now THAT would be a drool-worthy bash!
