(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.

    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.Read MoreIn 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.

          Because the bra is considered a tactical piece not just a sportswear item, thorough tests were conducted in developing the current prototype, including flame testing at DEVCOM's Thermal Test Facility. Findings from these tests will be presented by the development team when the bra is presented to the Army Uniform Board later this year.If the bra "becomes an official Program of Record as a result of the upcoming Army Uniform Board, we would see that as a win for female soldiers across the Army, who would then likely be issued the ATB upon initial entry to the Army," Accetta said.

          Sir Alex Ferguson QUIT as Man Utd manager days before Treble season in huge row with board before stunning U-turn

          SIR ALEX FERGUSON sensationally QUIT as Manchester United manager just days before the treble-winning season.

          In a stunning twist of events following the 1997/98 season, Ferguson resigned from his position at Old Trafford before taking it back up.

          It came after the United board at the time, comprising of then-chairman Martin Edwards and Sir Roland Smith, chairman of the club's PLC board, expressed their doubts over Ferguson's focus.

          The inside story, revealed by The Times, was the season after United lost out on the league title by a single point to Arsenal, after winning four of the previous five seasons prior.

          Ahead of the new season Edwards and Smith told Ferguson: "We are worried about your focus."

          Their fears of this came from talk at the time of Ferguson revelling in his "celebrity status" and his passion for Horse Racing.

          Ferguson, perplexed with the line of questioning, directly questioned whether they were trying to force him out of the club - to which he was assured it was nothing of the sort.

          Transfers were also a hotly debated topic within the club's hierarchy, with Ferguson pushing for the signing of Dwight Yorke despite doubts from assistant Brian Kidd and other members of the United board.

          Following the meeting, Edwards wrote a letter for Ferguson upon his return to pre-season training outlining all the concerns the board had.

          Edwards then revealed that within hours Ferguson stormed into the office raging and declaring he was going to resign: "The language Alex used was a little bit more fruity, but that was the basic gist of it.

          "Well, if that’s the way you feel, Alex, we’ll have to accept it," Edwards replied, confident of calling the former Aberdeen manager's bluff.

          Fortunately for United, the bluff worked and Ferguson withdrew his application later in the day.

          Gordon Strachan described Ferguson as being "driven by anger," and following the butting of heads at the start of the season Ferguson was full of it.

          And it paid dividends as United won an unprecedented treble that year - a feat yet to be replicated in English Football.

          United also went on to win the next three Premier League titles, another feat which is yet to be replicated by a club or manager other than Ferguson's United.
