The relationship between the South Korean government and South Korean corporations can result in interesting . . . political . . . situations. Here's one that's relevant to Samyang Comtech

Quote
In recent years, the Ministry of National Defense has also come under fire for corruption. Military contractors tend to be owned or led by retired military leaders, which allows for “inbred” procurement practices. In 2015, it was revealed that the ministry gave Samyang Comtech preferential treatment, nearly leading to the outfitting of 300,000 servicemen with faulty body armor that would have jeopardized their safety. As a candidate, Moon promised to stop military corruption and called such behavior “a traitorous act aiding the enemy, which ought to be punished severely.

The GA's R&D and quality assurance teams are reportedly aware, and are well-versed in NIJ quality testing procedures.
