Introduced in 2006, this system was somewhat short lived, being replaced by the Improved Ballistic Protection Ensemble, i.e. Kestrel. Merlin was based upon the standard Combat Body Armour and the Mark V EOD combat vest, giving collar and shoulder protection for top cover sentries, riding atop "snatches" and other soft skinned vehicles. Nicknamed, "the Elvis outfit" by troops servining in South West Asia on operations, Merlin proved to be unpopular with troops, due to it's restrictive nature.
