Level III+ Spartan AR550 Armor

We’ve taken our Level III Body Armor to a NEW level! Spartan Armor Systems™ is pleased to introduce our AR550 Body Armor!  With a 10% increase in ballistic core hardness, our level III+ AR550 armor defeats higher velocity threats such as XM193, M855, and M80! We’re special rifle threat validated!

Our AR550 armor hits the “sweet spot” in the Brinnell Hardness (BHN) range. With a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, we have found our  ballistically rated variant of AR550 that we use is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats, while not exposing the armor plate to extreme stress due to forming.

Our AR550 Level III+ armor has our GEN2 lower cut radius. With a 10% increase in core hardness, this ballistic grade steel is much harder than AR500, but not too hard to cause severe stress while forming.

With higher velocity rifle threats commonly present throughout the United States, we’ve developed this AR550 armor to specifically defeat some common threats such as 5.56 x 45 XM193, 5.56 x 45 M855 /SS109 and 7.62 x 51 (.308 Winchester) at a rated velocity of 3,100 fps or less. Additionally, we’ve successfully defeated these threat profiles from Close Quarters Battle (CQB) distances…repeatedly!

Chest Plate Weight (per plate):   10x12 AR550 Swimmers Cut: Base Coat 6lbs 10oz.

Side Plate Weight (per plate):    6×6 approximately 2lbs 9oz (base coat)

Thickness:   .25″ AR550 plus approximately .25″ coating makes this slim profile plate overall .5-.6″ in total thickness

As with all of our AR550 Armor products, we only use the highest grade of AR550 to manufacture our armor!  Remember, not all body armor is created equal!
