Response to US Army's allegations of failed Air Foce testing : April 26, 2006

PINNACLE ARMOR, INC. PRESS RELEASE
April 26, 2006

The Air Force Office of Special Investigations' (AFOSI) February 2006 tests of the Dragon Skin® level III body armor at Aberdeen Test Center did not fail any written contract specifications with the Air Force. AFOSI, because it conducts counter-threat operations in hostile environments on a daily basis, has a requirement for a high level of ballistic performance, with a greater area of coverage in a lighter weight system, which also allows for better mobility to execute specific mission needs. Pinnacle is meeting that requirement. The decision to return the vests to Pinnacle following testing was a mutual decision to allow Pinnacle to address a manufacturing issue, but that issue did not affect the vests' performance during testing. AFOSI remains highly committed to having this body armor contract completed as planned, and the vests tested to meet this requirement and returned to their agents and support personnel deployed in support of the Global War on Terrorism. AFOSI was given an opportunity to review the content of this press release and agreed with its content. Should you have any questions for AFOSI, their POC is Capt Regen Wilson, (240) 857-0989.
