Gunner Accessory Package
The Gunner Accessory Package, also referred to as the GAP kit, is an advanced Blunt Force Trauma Protection System developed in response to direct gunner feedback from the theater of combat. The GAP Kit consists of a proprietary blend of energy attenuating materials and pads which address personal impact trauma over extreme terrains, within the hostile environment that a gunner or scout may encounter. Rapid deceleration/acceleration and IED events often occur and may cause traumatic internal injuries, concussions, or broken bones to gunners. These pads and associated accessories help alleviate these injuries in part or completely.
