We asked experienced HMB fighters to share their views on the ideal armor for this mission.
Michael Morgulis, the fighter of M.F.C club, told: ” I recommend a mobile and relatively light armor for universals. It should not be burdensome. But at the same time all the vulnerabilities must be well closed, because at any moment universal, as well as runner, can turn into a victim, pressed to the list. Therefore, you might give preference to corselet armor”.
Here is Adam Curry, the fighter from New Zealand “East Auckland Eagles” club, chooses a mobile enough, but at the same time a good defensive combination: “Floating arms and legs give best mobility, and large plates instead of splint give better protection. Light is good but it needs to be protective also. So, my plates cover around ¾ of my legs and arms. And the total weight is 21 kg while my weight is 115 kg”.
Editorial HMBIA News wishes all the soldiers safe and successful battles!
