The more armor develops, the less you have to compromise on things such as stopping power, durability, and price. This time, Armored Republic’s R&D team has developed a plate that can take multiple Level IV threats without allowing a passthrough.
The C2 Multi-Hit is manufactured in-house to handle more powerful military-grade weaponry than any other plate in our catalog. Most notably, this design is able to stop .30 caliber armor-piercing bullets (U.S. Military designation M2 AP) at a velocity of 2,880 ft/s. Whereas such a threat would punch through most plates, and even other Level IV ceramic plates would likely collapse after one hit, this plate has been tested to successfully stop as many as three successive M2 AP rounds.*
Ceramic plates stop rounds in a unique fashion: Rather than the mere hardness of the plate outmatching the strength of the bullet, ceramic armor allows a section of itself to shatter so as to absorb the bullet’s impact more completely. The downside of this method is that the shattering process can hurt the integrity of the plate. But further development and higher-quality materials have enabled the C2 Multi-Hit to limit that shattering to a much smaller area, leaving the rest of the plate strong enough to stop more hits.
The C2 Multi-Hit is compatible with all standard-size carriers; it is a normal 10x12” plate size with a thickness of 1 inch. It weighs 7.4 pounds—the same weight as the old C2 model despite having greater stopping power.
Finally, to protect you from any fragmentation caused by a bullet’s impact, and to protect your plate from the elements, the C2 Multi-Hit also comes with our proprietary FragLock™ coating. This seals the plate and deflects spalling off of its normal trajectory to maximize the performance and longevity of your armor. FragLock™ effectively and conveniently solves concerns that, while secondary to stopping power, should be addressed when choosing armor.
*“Multi-hit”, as an industry term, means anything more than a single hit for a Level IV test. For a Level III test, it generally means six hits. We are confident the C2 Multi-Hit plate can stop three rounds of Level IV threats with an adequate spacing of 5-6” between shots.
