Do US Army uniforms have a codpiece?

Asked by deepseas72 (1042 points ) July 17th, 2008

There was an article on http://cnn.com this morning about a soldier who thought Baghdad was too quiet and yearned to join his brother in action-packed Afghanistan. The photo pictured the soldier in uniform, sporting what appeared to be a built-in camouflage codpiece. This would make absolute sense in a war zone, but I’m not sure if that is really what I’m seeing.

The “Interceptor” body armor issued to US personnel includes removable modular elements designed to protect the groin and throat, in addition to the front and back armor panels. Here’s a picture.

So I’m guessing there are a lot of shin injuries?

At least the cod is well-protected.

Maybe – but those guys have just got some big ones to be doing what they do.
