Bio:

This heavy armor consists of solid plates of metal and plastic. Designed for use by police and special forces in highly dangerous areas, ballistic plate armor is generally considered too encumbering for infantry. However many soldiers believe the extra protection plate armor affords is well worth the loss of mobility.
