Military Madness: US military blew up pigs to test body armour
US military blew up pigs to test body armour - Telegraph.
Researchers strapped pigs and rats into Humvee simulators and subjected them to about 200 blasts, according to Pentagon documents and interviews obtained by USA Today.
The tests were carried out over an 11-month period.
The explosions ranged in intensity, wounding some of the pigs and killing others.
The research determined that body armour does not worsen brain injury, Jan Walker, a spokesman for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, which conducted the study, told the paper.
