Level III+ Advanced Triple Curve™ (ATC) 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 perfectly hits the “sweet spot”. It’s much harder than AR500, but not too hard to cause severe stress while forming.

  1. A tad big

    Posted by BC on Feb 17th 2017

    I am 6'1 and 220lbs. I have a set of 6x6 side plates from another another manufacturer. These 6x8 are a tad to big/tall for me but they will work, but I would guess that they would be to big for anyone under 6'0. The quality however is out of this word. Good stuff spartan. (Thumbs up)
