The Modular Carrier GL Rig is a ballistic-resistant vest used by the Livonian Defense Force in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the Contact DLC.

Overview

Premium content logo.png
This is a premium asset that requires ownership of the Contact expansion pack.


A modified Modular Carrier Lite vest but with shoulder and pelvic guards attached, the Modular Carrier GL Rig is only worn by the Livonian Defense Force's specialist troops. It weighs 80 "mass" and provides enough space for 130 units of ammunition/gear.

As with its parent vest, the Modular Carrier GL Rig is rated at Level III protection standards and covers the user's chest, abdomen and diaphragm. Thanks to the additional guards however, the pelvic region, neck and shoulders, are also protected against small calibre rounds and indirect explosions.

With the exception of the shoulder guards, each part of the vest retains a base armour value of 16 with a damage reduction modifier of 70%. The shoulder guards have an armour value of 8 and 50% damage reduction, while the neck guard itself only has a meagre armour value of 0.5 (also with a 50% damage reduction). It should be noted however, that they are meant to shield against explosions and not gunfire.

For all intents and purposes, the Modular Carrier GL Rig is an inferior version of its NATO counterpart. This is mostly attributed to the bulk of the vest itself - namely the torso and neck guards - not being improved with tougher armour. Worse yet, there are wide gaps in-between the torso plate and shoulders where the user isn't protected, rendering it even less useful for safety from gunfire.

As a result, it is only just slightly better than regular Modular Carrier Lites/Vests. Unless there are no other options available, the Modular Carrier GL Rig should be avoided in favour of its NATO counterpart.

Camouflage

  • Geometric: Fractal woodland-themed camouflage intended to mimic the LDF's Geometric pattern.
  • Olive: Pale olive green colour scheme.

Trivia

  • Alongside Modular Carrier Lites/Vests, the Modular Carrier GL Rig appears to be based on the real-world "KBT-02 Mini Plate Carrier" designed by MASKPOL S.A., a protective gear manufacturer located in Poland.
    • On the other hand, the strapped radio is modelled after the "3501" handheld radio designed by RADMOR SA.
