    Any headway made on this? Seems to be taking an absurdly long time

I would say this project,the MRV and everything inbetween will be axed IOT foot the bill for the lockdown. Thank god we got Mowag DRWS through the gate before this happened.
    In fairness, all Government Departments could be the same (Global recession) but the other side of the coin is that there will be a willingness to invest our way out of this recession.

    "The material of the PC Gen. III reduces water absorption, and designers shaved bulk from the vest by cutting out excess fabric from around the shoulders" = "25% weight savings".

    "Military.com reached out to Systems Command for the average weight of the PC Gen. III compared to the current plate carrier but did not receive an immediate response."

    Something tells me that they didn't reduce too much weight.

    Not necessarily a bad thing. The Swedes use a grey colour on their kit. I think the yanks refer to it as "Ranger Green".

    Maybe the government is planning on disbanding the professional military and moving to a militia model?
