(CNN)The US Army is developing a tactical bra for its female soldiers.

The bra, known as the Army Tactical Brassiere, is still in development at the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Solider Center, also known as DEVCOM, in Natick, Massachusetts. If approved by the Army Uniform Board, it will be the first official uniform bra the Army has offered its female soldiers in its history.

The Army Times was first to report the US Army is developing this bra.

Soldier Center's Design, Pattern and Prototype Team will present final concepts and designs for the bra to the Army Uniform Board in the fall of 2022, David Accetta, US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Soldier Center spokesperson told CNN.

If the Army Uniform Board approves the prototype and makes it a Program of Record, it will be added to the US Army uniform.

In order to develop the bra, DEVCOM surveyed "hundreds of female soldiers across the Army in different places and in different jobs," to gather information about the "proper fit, function, support and performance," Accetta said.

Prototypes were developed at DEVCOM's headquarters in Natick, MA. Possible design concepts from industry partners were also evaluated at DEVCOM's headquarters.

Well, it's about time dang nabbit.  :laugh:  The one thing that I notice in the picture though is that all these women have dark hair. No blondes with blue eyes, or redheads with green eyes?  No women of Asian descent? No women with fairer complexions?

Yesiree the most important thing right now while our country and military are falling apart is making sure that females (and those identifying as females, I'm sure) have tactical bras.  Whoop dee freakin' doo ... it will be the first uniform bra that the Army has offered its female soldiers.  *****rollingeyes*****
