Lightweight steel core body armor plate rated for AK-47 7,62x39 and lower velocity 5,56. The protection level falls between NIJ IIIA and level III. This plate is primarily intended for protection against the AK-47 but it will stop lower velocity .223/5,56 as well. The plate is also avaliable flat or curved as a bare steel version: Skyddsplatta AK-47 - RAW

- 25x30cm (approx. 10x12”).
- Weights approx. 2kg (approx. 4 lb 7oz)/pc with a base coat and approx. 2,5kg with a build up spall guard coating.
- Curved for better ergonomics. Base coated with polyurea similar to Line-X/Rhino Lining. Build up coat for spall protection is available as an option.
- No shelf life. No storage restrictions.
For those who are not ballistic nerds like us the velocity rating means that the plate will stop short range square hits with 7,62x39 Mild Steel Core from a standard AK-47. It will also protect against many standard .223/5,56 rounds fired from short barreled rifles or shot from a distance. The plate will not stop short range square hits with hot .223/5,56 clearly over the velocity rating of 868m/s (2850fps). At 2kg (4lb 7oz) the plate is at least 1 kg (2lb 3oz) lighter than most steel core level III plates and offers excellent protection for its weight and slim profile. The low weight is a result of using a high quality ballistic steel much harder than AR500.
