SHOT Show 20 – Grey Ghost Gear Introduces New Back Panels

Friday, January 24th, 2020

Grey Ghost Gear showed a full line of zip on back panels for armor vests.

They’ve even got an adapter for those vests without incorporated zippers.

The panels use the same zippers as the Crye systems so there’s some compatibility here in both directions.

SIG Range Day – TYR Tactical Armors Hendrick Motor Sports STEED

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Hendrick Motor Sports Silent Tactical Energy Enhanced Dismount, in my opinion the most impressive improvement to small unit mobility since the mule, is now even better.

The STEED remains capable of improving mobility and load carriage for the squad. This electric cart has zero emissions and can carry up to 500 lbs over complex terrain at speeds from 0-6.5 mph. STEED will even climb stairs and can be used in water.

But now it is armored thanks to TYR Tactical. They’ve armored the motor underneath and developed a kit to mount a level IV Ballistic Shield. The shield adds 43 lbs to the front of the STEED which they’ve offset with a soft container for ammo crates at the other end.
