Extreme Lightweight Steel Core Level III+ Armaply™ Armor from Spartan Armor Systems™. A real industry game changer with a choice of our signature patent pending Advanced Triple Curve™ (ATC™) ergonomic profile. Working closely with our metallurgist we have created revolutionary steel core armor platform manufactured precisely to our specifications! With its specific chemical and physical properties meeting our exact requirements, our proprietary AR650 Armaply™ Armor has exceptional forming properties- much better than traditional harder steel core armor platforms. This armor is able to be formed to our ergonomic, PATENT-PENDING ATC™ profile, safely using our proprietary bending methods and tooling. This is NOT your typical press-brake bent armor. This armor has a single, flowing bend radius to preserve the integrity of the plate. With our aggressive swimmer cut profile, Spartan Armor Systems™ was able to save some weight, yet still cover and protect all the vitals (heart, lungs, and arteries). Also available in our Shooters Cut.
