In olympic sword fencing, the female beast plates have cones in them, for obvious reasons.
I am surprise the Army took so long to figure this out.
But then, traditionally in the US Forces the women do not serve in combat. That's mostly an Israeli thing.
For the past decade, women have been in an ever increasing "combat" role. They are apart of convoys, stationed at FOBs, and actually come under fire quite often downrange. They are not immune to rockets, mortars, and small arms fire... the "rear" has been getting closer to the front.
I'm glad they are finally doing this. Form and function must go together, especially in combat equipment. There's too much at stake.
See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.
