On July 13 (2006), DefenseReview reported on the Mini Battle Shield (a.k.a. Mini Combat Shield) being developed by Combat Body Armor (CBA). As we reported before, CBA is also developing a larger/full-size ballistic battle shield/combat that’s approx. four (4) times the size of the current mini shield, and will be able to stop NIJ Level III and NIJ Level IV ballistic threats, according to CBA.  We now have photos of the large/full-size Combat Shield/Battle Shield prototype, as well as some information on it. However, CBA hasn’t yet given DefenseReview permission to make the photos and info on it public. When they do though, we’ll publish them/it. 

In the meantime, here are some high-res photos of a Level IIIA prototype MBS/MCS that successfully stopped 9mm and .44 magnum rounds…


Note: According to CBA, the final-version Mini Combat Shield/Mini Battle Shield (MCS/MBS) will also be able to stop NIJ Level III and NIJ Level IV ballistic threats.

Combat Body Armor’s corporate website is still under development. In the meantime, while their corporate site is being developed, they have a temporary web page up at their URL. There’s not much information there at the moment, nor are there any photos.

If you’d like more info on the Mini Battle Shield (MBS), a.k.a. Mini Combat Shield (MCS), or the larger/full-size Battle Shield/Combat Shield, we would advise you to contact Combat Body Armor (CBA) by phone at 443-722-8433, and via email at Ask for Chris Taggart.
