In India, tests of a composite body armor that withstand hit from AK-47 are completed

In India, they announced the completion of tests of body armor, the basis of which are composite materials. It is reported that research in the field of creating body armor, which is about 10 kg lighter than previous similar versions, was carried out by specialists from the DMSRDE Laboratory for the Study of Innovative Materials in Kanpur.


The creators of the personal protective equipment call it a bulletproof jacket that covers vital areas of the body: the neck, groin area, the body not only in front and behind, but also on the sides.

The new body armor was developed by order of the General Staff of the Indian Army.

According to the manufacturer, despite all its relative lightness (according to some reports, it weighs less than 6 kg), it provides protection against 9-mm carbine ammunition, and also withstands hit from a Kalashnikov assault rifle, distributing the impact on the material. The version of the machine is called - AK-47. At the same time, the range of the shot from AK-47, which is safe for a soldier in such body armor, is not said.

The bulletproof vest (bulletproof jacket) has a modular basis: plates can be replaced with those that correspond to a certain protection class.

The General Staff of the Indian Armed Forces noted that the new body armor, created on the basis of composite materials, will begin to enter the troops in the near future. Initially, they will be equipped with special units of the Indian army, including those deployed in the area of ​​the contact line in Kashmir, which remains a hot spot on the map of the region.

    The manufacturer’s reports say ... At the same time, it does not say about the range of the shot from the AK-47, which is safe for a soldier in such body armor.

    And why then do the media mention the AK-47? For advertising?

    Anyway, from 100 m after hitting 7,62 there will be bone fractures and injuries to internal organs. The soldier is likely to survive, but will be disabled during the battle.

      Here, obviously, the stake is on survival. A cripple survives or is combat-ready - this is already a happy accident. what

        Theoretically, yes, severe contusion due to ingestion can cause irreparable damage to the kidney, for example

          Didn’t you see the video how the Chechen cops fired at each other at point-blank range with AK? And nothing .. In general, what is the discussion about, it is better without a bronik, so that there are no bruises?

      If there are serious injuries, and they most likely will happen, will the soldier have time to bring him to a medical facility or will he be bent from pain shock or internal blood loss?

        Good question
        Depends on three things:
        1) Severity of injury
        2) Where are the hostilities
        3) The ability to provide first aid on the spot
        Severity of injury - if we are talking about a rib fracture (say), as a result of which a large blood vessel was cut (the probability of this is small) - then yes, people are in danger
        Damage to internal organs as a result of a bruise can cause slow internal bleeding.
        Location - if this is a special forces operation behind enemy lines, it’s bad.
        If they take him to the nearest Hospital - even worse laughing
        Under normal conditions, they are usually delivered by helicopter to a medical facility / field hospital. If such an opportunity exists.
        Here and the intensity of the battle and the situation, etc.
        First aid With a functioning military assistant and a safe place to assist, easily. You open the air (the jaw down, the tube with a hole in the mouth), put the system with saline solution, and then the situation
        If this is Dagestan and you fight with barmaley - everything is ok. Extra forces go there, 80% of what will deliver the guy alive and let him out healthy from some Makhachkala hospital
        If you are somewhere in Idlib, surrounded by militants, you put a helicopter in the figs, etc. - the forecast is less favorable

    with such an area, this coctail is sewn up a special vest, because you need 500 grams per square DM and they come out half a meter, consider 50 dm. the warrior weighs over the stove in kg per dm. not well, if a soldier is cowards boots Kalash bronik, then the weight is quite. but in the end it turns out that this is a simple broonic + simple anti-shatter panels.

      There is an angry booth, but which "simple bronik" can withstand a hit from Ak47? And while the armor plate does not get through penetration? What such "simple anti-fragmentation panels" can jokingly withstand without bullying from an impact a bullet from ANY Kalashnikov assault rifle? ?? What are you writing about? ???

            Grade 3 holds a bullet with a simple core. The fourth is holding a special armor-piercing bullet.

              and tungsten cobalt? and 3-4 classes - whose is your reference measure? if NIJ then yes. if the new Russian is more likely 5, if the old Russian is more likely 5.

                I do not live in Russia, and we use the American standard of protection. And tungsten-cobalt costs such money that it is cheaper to make a bullet from titanium.

          Taki AK and AK-74 have completely different ammunition. This is for standard.

      The claimed 6 kg is probably in the minimum configuration.
      The body armor is modular. If you fasten a “saliva” on the photo, it protects the neck from the front, panties on the groin area, etc. the mass is likely to be several times larger.
      Then about additional plates that affect the class of protection.
      Those. area = area of ​​protection, protection class varies greatly on the mass.

      You can sing, but it will. They will sing in armor, and those who dance in the old bronics. And since they said that the bronik made easier than it could be, then you can try dancing. Hindus they are, do not feed bread)

    Well, and sho!? Do you think? As far as I remember, in Russia they check bulletproof vests and how they hold the rifle bullet from the SVD (although I don’t remember now, at what distance) ... but no one claims that the "armor protection" from the rifle in Russia has been successfully solved for a long time!

    America discovered. it’s the 21st century in the yard, and in India they finally made an armor withstand the AK-47. They had no Estonians in their family accidentally, or something like a late ignition.
