LEVEL IV BODY ARMOR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Does Level 3+ Body Armor Stop?
According to the upcoming National Institute of Justice’s upcoming NIJ .07 RF2 standard, a Level 3+ body armor plate will be required to defeat all RF1 threats (7.62×51 m80 NATO, 7.62×39, 5.56 m193) PLUS the RF2 threat, which is a 5.56 m855 green tip.
When the new NIJ .07 standards are released, the certification will include either 51 or 67 body armor plate samples for full testing.
What are Level 3+ Body Armor Plate Made Out Of?
The main components of all RMA’s level 3+ body armor is a ceramic strike face and a composite backer.
RMA builds its NIJ .07 tested level 3+ body armor plates with a thin alumina oxide ceramic strike face and a polyethylene composite backer. The ceramic serves to break apart the armor piercing rounds, which allows the composite backer to act as a catcher’s mitt and catch the remaining bullet fragments and reduce the energy impact transferred to the body.
Typically, the lighter the material, the more expensive it is. Please see the “Details” section on each of our product pages to see the materials RMA utilizes to manufacture them.
Why Should I Buy Level 3+ Body Armor?
We say that Level 3+ body armor is the sweet spot of armor. While it may not live up to the Level 4 body armor standards in terms of ballistics in defeating the 30.06 M2AP round, it stops many of the same rounds at a much lighter weight.
At just 4.5lbs (for a single curve 10×12 plate, or multi-curve size medium) a Level 3+ body armor plate defeats all common hand gun rounds and rifle rounds like m80 NATO, 7.62×39 mild steel core, m193 AND the m855 green tip.
