The “unisex” Army Combat Fitness Test has become a disaster for female Soldiers, as around 84 percent of them can’t seem to pass it, according to a leaking army document.
Leaked ACFT numbers obtained by Clearance Jobs writer David Brown show around 36% of Soldiers fail the new fitness test, with around 30% of men failing while 84% of women failed to meet the mark. On the passing side, around 70% of men pass, while a mere 16% of women can clear the pass/fail hurdle.
The information was confirmed by a leader at the ACFT test battalion, who stated the numbers were almost exactly with that of the unit.
The ACFT consists of a strength dead-life, a standing power throw, hand-release pushups, a spring-drag-carry, a leg tuck, and a 2-mile run.
According to Clearance Jobs, the test results could hamper promotions, schools and even re-enlistment opportunities for female Soldiers.
