Dragon Skin Truth or Media convenience ?
Soldiers have been asked to shed their Pinnacle Armor "Dragon Skin" and much to the MSM media hype NBC news aired their "Personally biased product liberal excrement to the contrary of the truth"
Pinnacle Body Armor has made claims that thier body armor was superior to the "Interceptor" body armor that the soldiers are now being issued. Interceptor body armor has in fact passed the military's protocol for testing penetration tests in all protocol such as extreme heat and extreme cold through the ESAPI test protocols.
NBC in their never ending questo to punish the current administration and it's handling of the "Body Armor" issue ran their biased piece on television last night.
Here's the truth. Written by a vetted member of the U.S. Army Special Forces who goes by the handle of "The Reaper" on Professionalsoldiers.com He is one of the finest Special Forces Officers with the USASFC with unquestionable charachter. He speaks the truth. I highly recommend that you read this thread at Professionalsoldiers.com It is long, but you'll be enlightened if you have had any questions or conerns for loved ones serving in Iraq or Afghan that are wearing body armor.
Those are bogus and done by a Navy Dentist
It's interesting that you posted a link to Tactical Forums regarding this matter. the person posting the thread is "DocGKR" a Navy Dentist with little or no credentials in the body armor business.

DocGKR is also a member at Professionalsoldiers.com The link I provided. All members are vetted Special Forces and or Former Special Forces and Airborne Rangers and Airborne personell, the rest are guests with the title of "Assets" under the handle name.
DocGKR has yet to speak up on our site. Why is this ?
He get's away with it at Tactical Forums. com because he can, not because he has actually followed ESAPI protocols. In fact, I'm surprised that the vetted SOF personell on Tactical Forums(to which there are very few0.com have not put a stop his biased reporting.
If you bother to read "The Reapers" entire thread you'd see DocGKR name brought up quite a bit and it aint friendly. "DDS" is for "Dentist" and DocGKR is a Navy DDS. What exactly are his credentials in the body armor development business and procurement ? Is he being paid by Pinnacle Armor ? and what does the Navy think of him being paid for this ?
I believe the truth is stated on Professionalsoldiers.com by "The Reaper" I know him personally and you will not find a finer Officer in the Army Special Forces. He is of unquestionable charachter and he has no PROFIT MOTIVE in his writings or his personal assesment of the Pinnacle Dragon Skin.
In fact, if it did meet the ESAPI protocols, he'd be the first to insist that his men and rest of the ground forces were given the opportunity to wear DS down range.
