So right now we have fort armor, soft armor and so on, I would like to suggest bringing in AR500 and AR550, AR650. Things like level I, II, III, IIIA, IIIA+, IV and ect. I feel the current armor system is kind of lackluster, usually armor is a plate or set of plates that go into the PC.
I understand that EFT is striving for real world realism through ballistics and "human dynamics." Well if you're nerdy enough to get into physics/ballistics and body armor, then please, make yourself at home. As a friend of mine once said, "Let us study the laws of physics and the effects on ceramics." However he was referring to gravity and how it would effect china as we walked down the aisle stocked with plates and dishes, and not SAPI plates. Anyways, enough ranting, lets get down to business. I am sure we've all heard of body armor and are more or less familiar with the different levels (see attached photo for more details on the levels of Body Armor). This thread is merely for the discussion of body armor and its presence in EFT. Example: Ceramic plates, steel plates, soft armor, combining both soft armor and hard plates? Durability of different types of inserts. Trauma inflicted upon being hit. The list goes on..... As an example of discussion, I understand that Level 3 plates can stop most, common rifle rounds. However, I have seen .223 XM193 penetrate level 3+ (not 4) armor out of a 20 to 22 inch barrel (traveling in excess of 3300 FPS) rifle while being fired out of an 16 or 18 inch, would defeat the round.
