US Army Uniforms Through The Years
How Uniforms Change
The US Army have changed their uniforms depending on the war location and the newest technology. Th war uniforms change in able to fit the environment and the threat.
The body armour a solider wears wasn't invited until 1860,so not all wars had the protection of body armour. The first body armour that was used was a shrapnel vest for explosives.
The US Army are always working on new armuor and uniforms, the suit in the picture is being developed by McDill Air Force bases in Tampa Florida.The suit is equipped with an exo- skeleton to carry weight, it can heat or cool the solider.The suit has a water jell that is light but hardens when it is hit with bullets, hope to have it ready for action by the end of 2017.
