Drake's Flak Jacket

The body armour vest worn by Drake is the M1969 Fragmentation Protective Body Armour. The M1969 is itself an improved version of the M1952 body armour, the most notable change being the added 3/4 inch collar. The M1969 was issued to the US military from the late 1960's until adoption of the P.A.S.G.T (Personal Armour System Ground Troop) Kevlar body armour vest in the early 80's*.
