Tacticon Armament’s Level IV is an armor composite of ceramic and UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) weighing 7 lbs. As per NIJ .06 standard, it is tested to stop (1) shot of 30-06 M2AP. This application is made to give you the ability to completely stop an Armor Piercing round while managing trauma. This is a complete standalone plate that requires no soft armor behind it. The goal of this plate was to reduce as much weight as possible but still giving you the capability of stopping an AP round. We always try to prioritize weight and comfort and that’s why we have this configuration in a multi-curve system to help conform to your torso. This armor solution will also stop your other rifle threats like 5.56 M193/M855, 7.62×51(M80), and 7.62×39.
Will it stop other rounds other than the 30-06 M2AP?
Yes! This plate was designed to stop the 7.62×39 (122 gr) MSC, 5.56 in the M193/M855 variations, and also the 7.62×51(M80). This can also stop all of your handgun threats.
Is it Multi-hit?
Yes. It can take more than 1 hit from the 30-06 M2AP.
What is the TPU (Thermal Polyurethane)?
TPU or short for Thermal Polyurethane is a plastic that is heated in order to vacuum form around our plates. After the vacuum forming process, we seal the edges with TPU to create a water tight seal that will keep moisture and even repel diesel. One of the most overlooked processes of a plate is making sure that the covering is secure to prevent moisture or foreign material from compromising the integrity of the composite armor.
