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
Our AR550 Spartan Body Armor now has the option of Advanced
Triple Curve (ATC). An industry FIRST! Spartan Armor Systems™ is proud
to be the FIRST in the industry to commercially offer triple-curved
AR550 body armor. 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!

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