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
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!
