Is anybody familiar with this manufacturer and can give any info on these ceramic plates. I cant seem to find any info. My Google-fu is lacking. I want to sell them allong with a BFG MOLLEminus carrier but I need more info in the armor first
Ah yes the company was Supreme Protector. They had some DOS and Navy contracts. They made what we commonly refer to as Ranger Body Armor although they were not the only one nor were they the largest manufacturer. I have a set of those plates as well. I used the vest in 97 in Yugoslavia then again during the invasion of Iraq. The company website is still up I believe. It was pretty good stuff for the time period. They also made EMS vests before anyone else, a PASGT vest with hard plates, and some load carriage kit. I just moved and may have thrown it away but I had a vintage catalog from 1997.
Actually, as a historical piece, they might become worth money to a collector eventually. I know its lame t ok advocate to retain something heavy and useless if not in use, but original ARs are now curio and relic status.
