It's been brought up in another thread this CRL statement is in question "Abdomen Section - 
The abdomen has 7 boxes attached that matches the order and placement shown and sit flush against the armor." 

 

How flush is flush? The remaining question is should this be at basic, L2 or L3?

 

Anyway here's a photo of movie armor stating the obvious.

Sorry for the edits, I misunderstood the question being asked in the other thread.

I do worry about the wording "little" gap little is broad term; would it be too extreme to say no more than whatever measurement of gap or is the an L3 requirement

Great question, the FISD has never been in the habit of making someone pull out a ruler to check measurement. Specific numbers are generally to be used as a guideline. The term "little" gap used by Glen though broad would also allow for minor imperfections. Without it's absolutely black and white, no pun intended ;)  That said we've all heard the CRLs may be changing, to what extent has yet to be determined. Threads like this are where you can voice your facts, opinions and provide screen shots for reference.
