In December of 2000, the world-known Popular Science magazine published review that was titled, â€śBest of whatâ€™s new in 2000â€ť. The article is written on the Interceptor body armor jacket created by David H. Brooks and DHB Industries Inc. The interceptor body armor jacket is used by soldiers in the military to protect them from gunfire, shrapnel, explosive devices, etc. This informative article describes the Interceptor and the remarkable protection it provides for our U.S. soldiers and law enforcement officers.
Stop a Speeding Bullet
The Interceptor Flak jacket, made from a Kevlar-like material called KM2, can stop 9mm handgun bullets in their tracks. Even more impressive: with boron carbide plates inserted in the jacketâ€™s pockets, it stops rifle or machine-gun-fire, which was not possible in the past. Despite the improved protection, the interceptor weighs only 16.4 pounds, 9 pounds less than previous models. The $1,700.00 jacket is being used by infantry and light artillery units, and may soon be worn by police officers.â€ť
Not only are these jackets now being worn by police officers but these jackets are saving lives all over the world. The interceptor has saved many police officers from gunshot wounds and stabbings. This jacket has also protected our soldiers in the war from sniper fire, machine guns, handguns, shrapnel, explosive devices and so much more. David H. Brooks has designed state of the art protection for our Americans, and because of his contributions to the U.S. Military, our soldiers have a better chance at life.
