Hoffman Washington a the army soon will Field test in Vietnam a new armoured Boot designed to save infantrymen from crippling wounds inflicted by communist land mines. Mines and Booby traps have caused a higher proportion of american deaths and wounds in this War than in world War ii and Korea. Some 800 pairs of a new blast protective tropical combat Boot will be sent for Field evaluation to army and Marine troops in South Vietnam. Another too pairs will go to soldiers patrolling the truce line in Korea where armed clashes with North korean infiltrators occur from time to time. The Boot under development for the past four years at army laboratories incorporates a stainless steel wedge filled with aluminium honeycomb and covered on top with aluminium plate. The wedge protects the Heel and the Arch areas of the foot and has a a shaped Cross Section to deflect the blast upward and outward. The protective Shank weighs Only seven ounces. Research by army experts also has led to development of an Over Boot which was found to increase the potential a a save of the foot from 45 to 90 percent. This Over Boot also guards the Bony Structure of the lower leg. According to the latest available statistics mines and Booby traps have accounted for about 9 percent of the combat deaths in Vietnam. This compares with a 3 percent rate in world War ii and 4 percent in the korean War. Nonfatal wounds attributable to hidden explosive devices have been running at the rate of about 13 percent of All wounds suffered by . Troops in Vietnam. A comparable rate in both world War ii and Korea was 4 percent. Army scientists and technicians Are also concentrating on improved body Protection for american soldiers and marines fighting in Vietnam s Jungles mountains and swampland. Under development is a Bullet proof body Armor that will supplement the Standard protective Vest worn by infantrymen to shield against grenades and other fragmentation weapons. This Armor will weigh from 19 to 24 pounds. Lightweight Felt body Armor vests also Are being tested and evaluated in Vietnam b v soldiers of the first infantry division.
