In response to lessons learned in combat, the British Army developed the Virtus personal armour system that offers the same protection as Osprey, but is significantly lighter, moves with the body more easily, and produces a slimmer profile. Virtus is 4.7kg (10lb 6oz) lighter, and will be even lighter once new armour plates in development are introduced. The level of protection can be increased or decreased depending on the threat environment by adding or removing soft armour pads and hard ballistic plates.

First generation pouches were criticised for poor stability on the cover, with some infantry identifying that pouches designed to hold two magazines did not securely hold three, [ citation needed] and that the scale of issue was inadequate to hold a standard patrol ammunition load of six magazines.

This gave a further weight reduction and allowed for more flexibility when positioning the side plates; it also allowed the OPS panel to be worn along with the side plates. The basic design of the main vest and the armour inserts was unaltered. [25] By 2015, over 76,000 Mk 4 and 35,000 Mk 4A vests had been manufactured for British Armed Forces use. [26] Criticism [ edit ] Combat body armour". Ministry of Defence. Archived from the original on 6 May 2014 . Retrieved 6 May 2014. This version was first issued in 2007. The vest was improved by the use of modified pouches, a drop sling attachment on the shoulder to support an L85A2 rifle in lieu of the standard L85A2 sling, and improved construction quality. The press studs were modified so that they could only be undone in one direction (as opposed to the multi-directional studs of the Mk 1 vest). A waist cummerbund belt was introduced to improve the fit and comfort of the vest. This version also saw the introduction of separately fitted arm and collar protection. Ministry of Defence (United Kingdom) (2015). Army Code No. 71717, Infantry Training Volume 1, Pamphlet No. 2 Fieldcraft, Battle Lessons and Exercises. The quality of the manufacture of versions 1 and 2 has been criticised with reports of seams and fasteners tearing open in normal use. [ citation needed]

Unassembled Osprey Mk 2 body armour. The wrap around fasteners clearly visible on the rear half (left) were introduced on the Mk 2 covers and help provide the wearer with a more secure and comfortable fit. A later version known as Enhanced Combat Body Armour was developed in 1991 and allowed for the soft body armour to be augmented with ceramic hard armour plates for improved ballistic protection, [5] but the small size of these plates meant that only the upper torso was protected.seems lighter and they say it's silent (They make whole garments out of this "innovation" stuff). My only gripe is i wanted something that was wholly made of natural materials. Initial criticisms of the first generation were related to the significant increase in weight, and size of the ballistic plates, compared with the existing ECBA. [ citation needed]

Osprey body armour is a system of body armour used by the British Armed Forces. The system is in its fourth iteration following extensive development and engagement with front line users. The armour system is not currently issued to personnel stationed in the UK, and instead retained in theatre and issued to troops during inward processing. Training is undertaken using earlier versions of Osprey.
