Historical vs Contemperary armor[edit]

Looks like a great article. I just noticed that while the article talks about many historical issues, the pictures all seem contemporary. Its probably harder to get pictures of older examples (though these may be easier to get with useful licenses), but it would seem any that can be found would help the tone of the imagery match that of the article. --Δζ (talk) 20:39, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Main explaination[edit]

"Personal armor (or personal armour) is a type of light armor used to protect police forces, private citizens and private security guards or bodyguards, whereas hard-plate reinforced vests are mainly worn by combat soldiers, police tactical units and hostage rescue teams."

--> change to: "Personal armor (or personal armour) is the whole of protecting clothing, designed to absorb and/or deflect slashing, bludgeoning, and penetrating attacks. They were historically used to protect combat soldiers, whereas today, they are also used to protect police forces, private citizens and private security guards or bodyguards. 2 types exist: regular non-plated personal armour (used by the people mentioned above) and hard-plate reinforced personal armour, which is used by combat soldiers, police tactical units and hostage rescue teams.

changed it allready, kept duplicate of change here just in case. 91.182.245.136 (talk) 12:49, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Note the lede should not include use of a dog it raises a POV issue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Geofferybard (talkcontribs) 21:32, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

How is this off-topic/POV? This article is intended to cover ballistic materials that are intended to protect flesh. It is good to get an image covering non-human use of armor and this counters systemic human bias.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Marcus Qwertyus (talkcontribs)
The Lead should reflect and summarize the main article. Dogs are not mentioned in the entire article. (Hohum @) 16:42, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Law Enforcement[edit]

The law enforcement section has pretty obvious bias and sources only from the US, whilst referring to worldwide statistics. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.132.97.132 (talk) 14:26, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Personal armorBody armor – Primary name. Used in legislation in US, commonwealth and EU jurisdictions, used much more commonly in books, google and bing results (below). -- Callinus (talk) 07:53, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Spelling[edit]

Hold on a second, the armour article uses the spelling with the "u". Same with vehicle armour, armoured fighting vehicle, armoured warfare etc. Does this article then not violate WP:CONSISTENCY? Bataaf van Oranje (Prinsgezinde) (talk) 13:09, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
