stands better this test. Far better, but the traumatic shocks from the hits probably would turn the guy behind the Steel plate into much.
Do not forget that tests were done by old ammunitions, meanwhile this body armour was designed recently. It is like you try to penetrate with longbow and arrow against WWII's tank. The result is obvious. It would more interesting if the test was made with more modern ammunitions like 7N24, 7N23 or 7N4 for example.
Around AR500 I suspect another robbery.
The fact that the traumatic shock on the plate would make your internals look like a bad smoothie is exactly why most of the militaries in the world prefer, by far composite plates. Plus front and back plates would set you up for 10/12kg in 6x8 about 14 kg in 8x10. it's just not workable on the field compared to composites. And if you find yourself in a position you can get shot once, then you'll get shot twice and more.
