It was reported that the US Army had recalled 44,000 Advance Combat Helmets (ACH) that was supplied to them by ArmorSource for some defects that does not meet US Army's technical specifications.
It was reported that US Army Program Executive Officer, Brig Gen Pete Fuller in rejecting the ACH remarked that, “Soldiers safety is our number one priority”.
Here we note the mark difference between the Malaysian Army and the US Army when dealing with equipments that are known to be defective, where the former would just close an eye if a defect is observed. I blame this solely on the lack of integrity on our officers who may have been on the 'pay roll' of the agents or suppliers of such defective equipments.
The US Army has shown us what integrity is all about, and that soldiers safety is paramount. Will the Malaysian Army be bold enough to do likewise, in rejecting some known defective combat helmets that was supplied to the army recently?
