RMA has long been a composite hard armor manufacturer, boasting five NIJ Certified hard armor plates. But to meet the need and demand of so many who have asked, is RMA’s limited edition Level III+ AR550 base coat steel series armor plate. This is a steel, Level III+ 10×12 plate with a base coat that boasts a 10% increase in ballistic core hardness over an AR500 armor plate. That means our level III+ AR550 armor defeats higher velocity threats, such as XM193 and M855, plus M80 NATO and 7.62×39 to name a few.
With a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, we have found our ballistically rated variant of AR550 armor that we use is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats, while not exposing the armor plate to extreme stress due to forming.
