C2R-Fast Virtus Mods
C2R-FAST is a UK-based manufacturer of tactical equipment. Virtus is the British issue armor and load carriage system. C2R-FAST is regularly asked to make modifications to VIRTUS systems. They built up this version as a proof of concept.
Over the course of 2 days, they set the target to produce a deployable system that they would be happy to put their badge onto. The stipulation they set for themselves is that it should have the same basic functionality as VIRTUS, in terms of PALS area and lines, ability to integrate a collar, abdominal panel, single point cutaway, and be completely compatible with a suite of VIRTUS soft and hard armour.
Over the first day, they set about researching and cataloguing what was being said about Virtus by users (good and otherwise).
As always there are compromises in the process, so little details like keeping the cutaway handle in the same place, or the number of vertical PALS webbing on the front had to be maintained as part of being true to the challenge.
Day 2 was all about the build.
By the end of day 2 they had a working system with a number of functionality improvements that tie into C2R heritage; like a good size admin pocket on the front, hydration pocket built into the rear, cable routing over the shoulders and dual purpose radio/magazine pockets in the flanks.
There’s a lot more other things that they’ve added, alongside a 20% weight saving.
they plan to release details of how it gets on in the field.
