NTOA – Velocity Systems

20110918-033027.jpg

Velocity Systems is well known for armoring humans but up to now few have known that they have put their expertise to work protecting K9s. Their new K9 armor vest was a challenge in design as well as execution. Not only did Velocity Systems have to model K9 physiology in order to conduct a tradeoff between protective coverage and weight, but they also had to ensure that the armor could be properly borne by the dog.

Consisting of 4 hard armor plates, Velocity’s solution was to provide two different sizes of plates. Weighing in at 6 lbs, the plate carrier can be worn independently by the dog or can integrate with other manufacturer’s harnesses.

    For what sick reason the bad one has to be afghan-like?

    That post screams troll.

    Not only is it written in broken English, but the article isn’t even about the dummy in the prone. how can you tell he’s from Afghanistan? Maybe he’s a foreign fighter. Either way, it doesn’t matter. Last time I looked, we were fighting in Afghanistan.

    Didn’t a couple of guys get all bent out of shape over that same dummy a few months ago?

    He clearly wears a pakol, typical afghan hat.
    I’m not a troll, I’m not american and I’m a reader of this blog as you are.

    P.s.: about my english: probably I write in english better than you will ever write in my language.

    Regards.

    “about my english: probably I write in english better than you will ever write in my language.”

    Who cares? The fact that you’ve gone out of the way to use English and that he doesn’t have to use your language completely voids that argument, now doesn’t it?

    He said that I’m a troll because I write in broken english. Accordingly this everyone who writes in broken english is a troll? Keep an eye to nearly 80% of american people, guys…

    By the way, no problem.

    Cheers.

    I mean “anyway”. Sorry for my broken english.

    Umm…

    Because Afghans are who we are currently fighting and up-armoring dogs isn’t a common practice within the US since the likelihood of being hit with an IED inside the US is kind of low.

    If you are trying to sell something to the US military and/or contractors, wouldn’t you gear my advertisments to those most likely to buy it?

    Would you make an advertisement for new armor carrier and attach it to a dummy wearing a jogging suit and an Ipod in a running pose? Or how about a female dummy wearing Victoria Secret underwear lounging on a couch?

    Seriously dude. Find something important to worry about, and don’t ever take a job in advertising….
