Innovative armor, mounted on the Zodiac Combat Rubber Raiding Craft that can be instantly inflated, providing a bullet-proof shield of defense for Special Operations Forces.

This is the first time armor has been added to this kind of vehicle.

The armor can be retrofitted to any CRRC by a 4-man crew in less than 5 minutes. The armor stays folded and stowed until needed. In the case of hostile enemy activity, then the user opens a conventional 80ft3 dive bottle, and the armored panels are forced into position using air pressure.

This is so cool. I'm betting if I wrote this inflatable armour into one of my spec ops stories, one of my readers would go "No way can they do that." Truth IS sometimes stranger than fiction.

Trivia question: Who is credited with inventing the Zodiac?
