Spent Monday at the Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD. One of the neater stops was the CARC paint lab where they had paint chips of all the shades of CARC paint used on Army tactical vehicles and Air Force ground support equipment. Would have been nice to take a set home with me!

Also got to see a composite armor Bradley hull and turret. The hull and turret were made of a material similar to that of a Kevlar helmet, except in a very large size.
