Lightweight steel core body armor plate rated for AK-47 7,62x39 and lower velocity 5,56. This model is primarily intended for protection against the AK-47. Also stops all common handgun calibers including steel jacked versions like the swedish m/39B and eastern block 7,62x25.
This model is our personal favorite because of its low weight and extremely slim profile. To our knowledge this is the lightest steel core plate in the world with this specific rating.
While our Level III armor plate has a higher protection level and protects against a wider range of calibers, due to its low weight and slim profile this model is preferred by most clients working in areas where AK-47s and handguns are the most common threats.

Here is a video of a ballistic test (7,62x39 MSC & 5,56 FMJ 55gr) performed by an independent test lab:
And here the plate is tested against M855 and other hot 5,56 rounds that are clearly over the rating:
A note about the velocity rating stated above: 720 ± 10 m/s for 7,62x39 means that the armor will protect against FMJ lead core or mild steel core projectiles fired from all AK-47 variants with a standard length barrel (16,3").
The velocity rating for 5,56x45 means that the armor will protect against many common .223/5,56 projectiles fired from short barrel rifles (<16"). For example a 12" or 14" AR often yields velocities within the rating while a 16" barrel usually has a muzzle velocity above the rating.
