Thicknesses of the ballistic vest

Posted on May 14, 2009 - Filed Under ballistic vest |

The wearer of such a ballistic vest is usually bruised by the impact of a bullet, but without serious consequence.
Ballistic vest of 16 layers will stop regular handgun and submachine-gun bullets; those of 24 layers will stop the more powerful magnum bullets from the same weapons.
Apart from the obvious military applications of the fabric ballistic vest, the rise of terrorism in the second half of the 20th century led to the increased use of body armour by police and antiterrorist troops.
Any ordinary pistol or submachine-gun bullet striking such a garment is immediately flattened as it hits the outermost layers, and the now mushroom-shaped slug dissipates its energy as it presses against the remaining thicknesses of the ballistic vest, unable to penetrate its overlapping layers of coarse mesh.
