Close Combat Modular Fighting Rig

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System

Objective

This project will acquire new modular fighting rigs (load bearing vests), pouches and accessories.

Requirements

The in-service Tactical Vest lacks flexibility, modularity and configurability for the close combat soldier in the current and future operating environment. The new modular fighting rig will allow soldiers to better configure their load bearing equipment to optimize functionality while conducting combat tasks.
