RMA’s Level III body armor plate (model #1078) is NIJ .06 Certified and also specifically designed for those who need maximum protection and mobility at a low cost. Additionally, the 1078 Level III body armor plate is engineered to be positively buoyant. Plus, it weighs just 3 pounds. This lightweight level III body armor plate will defeat multiple 7.62×51 FMJ, M193, 7.62x39MSC, 5.56 FMJ, and also handgun munitions. However, Level III does not defeat armor-piercing threats. Instead, we recommend our Level IV products if you are facing Level IV threats.
This Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) Level III body armor plate is also designed and manufactured at our Centerville, Iowa factory. We built it to exceed the standards set forth by the National Institute of Justice’s 0101.06 Level III Certification for a stand-alone plate, plus it will float in water. Anyone who depends on superior protection in the most dangerous situations can depend on the strength and quality of the 1078 Level III standalone rifle plate. Level III plates are ideal for maritime operations. Additionally, they excel at minimizing weight over rough terrain. You don’t need to give up on protection during dangerous operations in water our mountains. Instead, pick RMA’s 1078.
