    With this package, you get to choose for yourself exactly what armor type you want in that fight and get it discounted.

    The Testudo Gen 2.0 Plate Carrier is a plate carrier designed both to maximize coverage and be able to adjust to the wearer. It features a fully adjustable cummerbund and shoulder straps, making it a “one-size-fits-all” solution. It also has plenty of MOLLE webbing for attaching your pouches and accessories needed.

    Our New C2 Multi-Hit (C2 MH) level IV ceramic armor is manufactured in-house, and made to handle more powerful armor piercing type ammunition. The C2 MH is able to stop .30 caliber armor-piercing rounds; tested to NIJ 0101.06 Level IV rifle standards. This ceramic plate stops multiple rounds of .30-06 M2AP ammunition (2880fps) and all lesser threats and weighs 7.4LBS per plate. 

    The P2 UHMWPE armor option provides 3.3LB per plate rifle-rated protection that won’t fatigue you when you’re active, and won’t endanger you when you’re near water. Tested independently to NIJ 0101.06 Level III standards, this polyethylene plate is capable of not only stopping the standard threat level III rating of 7.62x51 M80 Ball at 2780 FPS, but will also stop the following special threats; 5.56x45 M193 at 3150 FPS and 7.62x39 MSC at 2380 FPS.

    Lastly, the A2 plate option is a level III+ lightweight multi-hit Alloy type plate capable of protection against a variety of special threat rounds: It is independently tested to prevent penetration from, 5.56x45 M855 penetrator (green tip) and M193 ball FMJ @ 3150 FPS, along with 7.62x39 @ 2380FPS, and 7.62x51 M80 Ball all @ up to 2,800 feet per second. It features an ergonomic shape, weighs 5.5LBS per plate in its base coat configuration, and provides edge-to-edge multi-hit protection. 

    Each plate set also comes with a pair of Trauma Pads; one is worn behind each plate to reduce the blunt force impact of the bullet and decrease backface deformation. 

    Finally, the Protector Helmet is a PASGT style ballistic helmet that stops all Level IIIA threats and below and weighs just three pounds- for a maximal-coverage setup, add this to complete your loadout at a discounted price.
