Doron Plate

Doron Plate is a strong G. F. Doriot who was chief of the Research and Development Branch, Office of the Quartermaster General of the Army during World War II.[5] The doron plates were used in the Korean War in the M-1951 and T-52-2 vests and the Vietnam War in the M-1952 and M-1955 vests. Stronger and lighter materials such as Kevlar-based body armor eventually superseded the doron plate.
