Early RBA Ranger Body Armor

Recommended Posts

Picked up this complete vest last week. Has all soft armor, and the plate. Heavily used and abused, it's full of dirt and sand also.

The tag on the carrier is too worn out to read the manufacture date, but has 1992 contract. The soft armor is 1992 contract with an 11/1993 manufacture date. Plate is unmarked.

This thing definitely has seen some heavy use. Seller claimed it came from a Ranger who said it was worn in combat. No other information provided, so it doesn't really carry any weight.

oh man, I love this one! Excellent example.


Crapgame: His name is Kelly. Used to be a Lieutenant, pretty good one too-

until someone gave him orders to attack the wrong hill. Wiped out half a company of GI's...

Somebody had to get the blame so he got picked....

Oddball (Laughing): Oh man, I don't like officers...

Crapgame (Laughing): Neither does he, so relax!
