More info

A hard plate, also known as trauma plate, is a plate that is an add-on component/insert to a ballistic vest. Its primary purpose is to absorb and disrupt the kinetic energy of a bullet impact and reduce the blunt trauma transferred to the wearer of the vest. Trauma plates typically enhance the ballistic value (how "bulletproof" it is) of the part of the vest that they are positioned behind.

The hard plate is used as stand-alone, it is possible to achieve the following levels of protection:

  • NIJ0101.04, level III : 6 shots (7,62x51 NATO projectile at 847m/sec).
  • NIJ0101.04, level IV : 1 shot (7,62x63 AP M2 projectile at 878m/sec).
  • NIJ0101.04, level IV+ : 3 shots (7.62x54R LPS MSC projectile at870m/sec).

The list of shots listed above are not exhaustive and do not take into account all the projectiles that can be stopped by the plate.
