I've also read the Ops-Core is better at back face deformation but I can't quite remember where I read it.

However that wouldn't translate over the Maritime I would think. Different material, designed for a different threat.

Don't have them in handy but look up the few pics (and the recent 60 minutes on the Bureau) where they are sporting GPNVGs, you'll notice they are mostly (if not only) using FASTs...

I'm betting there is politics involved. Ops-core has big Gentex backing them up. I'm sure the LONG history Gentex has with the DoD has a lot to do with the "win".

Is he wearing an ops core?
Can it be possible that also delta switched to ops core?

That's an Airframe, just not cover or rails.

A- because he didn't need them

B- because they probably didn't even exist when that picture was taken

I think it's sitting high because the helmet looks too small for him and he's wearing the headset under the helmet.

I've run across other pictures of Airframes being worn without the rails. If I run across them again I'll post them.

1st, because it doesn't provide any relevant info to the discussion about Airframes

2nd, because it's the forum rules which you have read and agreed to when you made your account :wink:
