Side Plates: Level III++
Hard Armor provides significant injury reduction as compared to soft armor of the same level due to minimized backface deformation. Hard Armor plates are also much easier to wear concealed as they conform better to the body, which in turn improves long term wearability.
Our III++ plates are capable of defeating all Level III rounds including 55 grain 5.56 (XM193), 7.62×39 and .308 (M80 ball) plus 7.62×39 mild steel core (M1943) as well as M855 / SS109
This plate is comprised of an AI203 (alumina) ceramic plate backed by a high pressure polymer backer and finished with a Line-X coating.
All our Hard Armor Plates are Made in the USA by LTC, Leading Technology Composites, the worlds largest and most respected body armor manufacturer.
