RMA’s Special Rifle Threat (SRT, model #1003) lightweight body armor plate (Level IIIa+) is designed to defeat the most common rifle threats in the world today, while being extremely tough and lightweight. At just 2.53 pounds, the SRT lightweight body armor plate allows the user to be quick and agile on his feet, while still boasting the stopping power to defeat multiple hits from a 7.62×39 (AK 47), a high-speed m193 round, or even hard hitting 7.62×51 (m80 steel) rounds.
The Special Rifle Threat body armor plate is perfect for those who need to wear their armor protection for extended periods of time for work or training. It can also be easily slipped into a backpack for lightweight body armor protection wherever you go.
What is Level IIIa+ Body Armor?
Body armor levels can be confusing, especially when armor companies try to “one up” each other in the marketing realm. But our SRT Lightweight body armor is rated to level IIIa+ because it defeats more than just your common handgun rounds do – which is the Level IIIa standard. But it also doesn’t quite fit the bill of a Level III body armor plate because it isn’t capable of defeating six .308 NATO rounds (M80) as is the requirement of Level III rifle plates. Therefore, it has to be listed between those two armor ratings, which turns out to be Level IIIa+.
Plate Carrier Compatibility
Due to it’s thin profile – at less than an inch thick (0.8″) – this special rifle threat plate will fit into just about any plate carrier that accepts single curve 10×12 body armor. It’s so thin and lightweight that you can even conceal it with RMA’s CPC Plate Carrier. Here are some more American Made plate carriers that pair nicely with the SRT plate:
