Virtus Equipment prices

We're waiting for Mr Hawthorne to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I would like to obtain the information regarding the cost of certain equipment supplied to the British armed forces.

if possible I would like a full breakdown of all the individual costs of the virtus equipment , which I believe is made by the company source, that is issued to the British armed forces. included in this I would like the price of the current issued helmets "revision battleskin cobras'

If this is not possible I would like specifically the pricing of the following items:

1) The cost of the Revision Battleskin Cobra helmets
2) the cost of the Virtus issued Body armour

Additional to this request I would also like to know:

1) when trialing the new equipment of 'Virtus' what other brands of equipment were trialled
2) what was the costs of these compared to the 'virtus'.
3)And why the decision was made to buy 'Virtus'.

And finally id like to request the cost of the development for the SA80 A3.

any help is much appreceated

Yours faithfully,
Mr Hawthorne
