Hello All,

 

I would like to show you this body armor M52 wich i think it is a second type KW

No doubt this body armor saw some action and it has some period repairs with the same basic material.

Dispite its missing plates it is a type not easy to find.

Is it true that the USMC removed the plates to recycle and put in other body armor after this type was going out of service.

Opinions are welcome.

 

Thank you for watching
