          You'd be wrong. It stopped .50 BMG AP at 25yd.
          It even met the NIJ backface deformation limits which is fricking crazy.

            I'm still not convinced. Can your body handle that blow without suffering internal bleeding?

              Yes, it can. That's what the NIJ standard for backface deformation means and don't say 'it's just numbers' because history indicates the NIJ BFD requirements are extremely safe, probably stricter than they need to be.

                NTA, I'm the guy who posted the test vid but I think at these levels of energy (even on the low end it's still around 18,000 J delivered in a fraction of a second) you can expect some physiological effects beyond what normally happens when you get a plate hit.

              Lighter than that, maybe.
              But I think that there are a few reasons:
              > Cost
              > The main threat to APCs comes from shaped charges and EFPs, and fancy ceramics don't have as much of a performance advantage there.
              > Fragmentation and other low-energy projectiles, including even rock impacts, can degrade the ceramic layer, and reduce effectiveness over time.
              > Ceramics and composites are not structural materials.
              I think that it would work if you have a metal "skin" to catch frag and protect the ceramic, and if the ceramic+UHMWPE is bolted-on to a metal structure. If the ceramic is damaged, remove and replace.
              Basically it's just too fricking expensive, lol. Fricking impressive af for what it is, though.

              They do. The Stryker is proof vs 762 on the base layer and uses an added ceramic one to stop .50.

    You won't survive taking a hit. In SHTF any wound is a life ender so the difference is you dying over three days because your plate stoped the chest shot but not the gut shot and you dying then and there because you got shot in the chest and the gut.

    Literally cope. Go watch any combat footage if you've never experienced it yourself and tell me again you'll be aiming for anything specific beyond "that guy there" at most

    Same poorgays probably also don't have any IFAK/TQ/anything. Gunshot wounds are often fairly survivable. Unless the world absolutely frickin ends in complete societal collapse. The trick is surviving long enough to get to the ER.

        So what's this scenario that you're getting into massive gunfights but also the ER is open.

        You’re going to get clapped in the thigh by a .22 LR hollow point and slowly die over the next week, because the ER surgeons fled the country and the hospital got truck bombed.

        >every possible instance of you getting shot outside of plate coverage MUST occur in complete and total anarchy or it doesn't fit my cope

        ERs remain open. They were open during Katrina. They're open in Gaza. Ukraine has field hospitals all over. Hell even fricking Syria had field hospitals when the isis shit was happened. Staffed mostly by volunteers.

        You fricking Black person homosexuals too poor for some plates when they're cheaper than they have ever been.

      You'd probably survive that given appropriate padding but I wouldn't volunteer to test it for all the money in the world.

      It'd probably hurt. Someone should do a test on a dead pig or something, pre-butchering/gutting. See what that kind of energy dump would do even spread across that plate. Close enough and better than the 1.5k ballistics gel dummies with the weird bones made of something strangely brittle. Gruesome yeah but I mean that's how they used to test/showcase the power of guns in like the 1800s and even early 1900s. Take it out and shoot a cow/pig. Might as well put a vest on a dead pig's chest and shoot.
