The British Osprey Navy Civilian Plate Carrier Set is a body armor plate carrier that would be worn by civilians attached to the British Royal Navy. One look at this vest and it is readily apparent that the intended wearer is in a non-combatant role. This look may be ideal for individuals who need to be protected from ballistic threats yet not be seen a posing a threat in a war zone.
British Osprey Navy Civilian Plate Carrier Set
The Osprey body armor system has been in use by the United Kingdom extensively since the invasion of Iraq in 2003. During this long history of deployment many enhancements and special versions of the Osprey system have been produced. This Royal Navy Civilian Osprey Vest is one example of a specialized version of the Osprey vest that is currently in use.
With a requirement to offer a protective vest to civilians that did not give the appearance of the wearer being a combatant, the Royal Navy standardized on this vest. The deep blue color is closely associated with the Royal Navy and the vest lacks the traditional PALS system that the standard Osprey Vest has. These characteristics make this vest ideal for offering protection to civilians without having the enemy see them as a potential threat on the battlefield.
