The Soviets used Infantry Armor in WW2, in this video Dr. Jens Wehner talks about the development, field testing and other aspects. We also take a look at the SN-42 Infantry Armor of the Military History Museum of the Bundeswehr in Dresden.

The shape of the neck is designed to prevent bullet splash. When a bullet hits an object harder than it spalling occurs and fragment continue to move fast enough to do damage. Particularly to the arms and neck. The neck is the part that they provided protection for as a fatal wound is still quite possible from fragments in the neck.

Tokarev rounds are actually used to test body armor today, since it’s a fairly high velocity pistol round. If it could stop them, it might not be too bad

Sad to say but I can make something with what's available to me in my house that's more durable

Its a very incomplete vest the hole in the middle is a rifle bullet and it's missing it's bottom haif and padding.

Kind of sad for the Russians that the mere mention of the VDV now elicits a laugh.

🤷‍♂️ The extra weight might have been a good idea where bullets are bouncing off cover obstacles.

I doubt it did much good agianst a direct rifle hit.

There is no such thing as 'stopping power' penetration kills not kinetic energy

before I watch the video I'm going to guess that it's main purpose was to reduce losses from artillery fragmentation. Having a steel helmet is good but also having a chest piece would further decrease the likelihood of a casualty too.

Huh I didn't think it would even hold up to 9mm so that's pretty good for a paratrooper dropping behind the lines

People nowadays refer to bullet fragments deflected by armor as "spalding" or a bullet strike will result in "spall." There are armor people on reddit for those interested in the rabbit hole.

Wow! 740 comments! Thanks for the very interesting video on an unusual piece of Soviet equipment. It was very exciting to see you make a video like this as its a departure from the usual topics of WW2. ANd judging from the comments there are many people interested in these lesser known WW2 artifacts. I would love to see more. Perhaps a video on Soviet assault engineer tactics and equipment? German pioneer squad tactics in urban areas? Or especially any unusual assault equipment. And finally, or years i have been looking (with little success) for information on what I can only describe as German "hunter/sniper" teams which were using the first infrared scopes. I know pre-operational IR sights were used on German tanks, but could only see 500m in darkness which was no better than conventional high power arc lighting.

You have to imagine this was very effective against fragmentation not just meant for bullets

This may have been useful against some volkscrappistols the Germans produced in the 1945.
