Tacticon Armament’s SRT+ (Special Rifle Threat) is a lightweight armor is a composite of ceramic and UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) weighing 4.1 lbs. The purpose of the SRT+ armor is to address threats that are not traditional tested by the NIJ .06 standard. This armor was tailored towards keeping your load out light while defeating more common rifle rounds like the 5.56 M193/M855 (traditional AR-15 round) and the 7.62×39 (AK-47 round). This armor was tested to withstand 6 shots from either the M193, M855, or 7.62×39 while keeping your trauma in a safe parameter. This plate is a standalone unit meaning you do not need anything else to mitigate trauma.
Why is it a SRT and not level III?
By the NIJ .06 definition, the testing parameter of a Level III plate is (6) shots of 7.62×51 (M80) with less than 44mm of back face signature on the first 2 shots and 0 penetrations on the last 4. What we are addressing are the more common threats of 5.56 and 7.62×39. Traditionally, a level III plate is typically thicker and heavier in order to stop the excessive trauma created from the 147 gr 7.62×51 round. However, by narrowing our field to the “special rifle threats” that the NIJ doesn’t test for (5.56/7.62×39) we can make a plate that is lighter and thinner. In addition, some Level III plates can also be penetrated by the M855 62 gr Green Tip which the NIJ does not test for.
Will it stop a 7.62×51 (M80)?
The simple answer is yes. It will stop the round with 0 penetration, however since the trauma can exceed the safety limit of 44mm, we do not advertise it as such.
Is it Multi-hit?
Yes. It was designed to easily defeat 6 shots of M193 and 7.62×39 MSC while maintaining trauma in the acceptable range of under 44mm.
What is the “+”?
For our application, the “+” means that the plate can also stop the M855 62 gr Green Tip.
