DKX MAX III Floating Armor

DKX Advanced Manufacturing has introduced a truly revolutionary thing in the world of personal protective equipment.


This is the so-called lightweight "floating armor", which withstands repeated bullet hits and is not sensitive to falls.

The product is a plate made of DSM Dyneema fiber and have NIJ Level III level of protection.


Also, a company spokesman Evan Anderson said that the company is now developing plates with a level of protection NIJ Level IV.

The company recommends using these plates in conjunction with the London Bridge Trading Company Ltd. (LBT) maritime tactical armor plate carrier.

    Floating body armor?
    The picture shows the traces of single shots AK-47?

      dents are marked
      .45 ACP (11,43 × 23 mm, large-caliber pistol)
      30-06 Springfield (7,62 × 63 mm, rifle)
      .308 apparently Winchester (7,62 × 51 mm, rifle)

      Very seriously. I wonder from what distance?

      DO NOT, will not surpass! Under the "roof" of Medvedev - Chubais with Vekselberg in Skolkovo soon, this - by 20 ... they will create one that has no analogue in the world: super-nano-armor-anti-moisture and wet-flying and underwater floating "product"! just pay and wait, wait and pay. We are kind and patient. Vivat, Nanochubaysik!

      Troops have been supplied since 2010 (4000 units were delivered then, in the year 13 deliveries continued, according to the commander of the Marine Corps.). Now, by the way, his new modifications have gone. And several others are made on its basis.

      I thought about the same thing. Besides the fact that it is floating (which is really cool), I did not see anything new for myself. The armor holding the bullet of the 47th is not news, just what's the point, what doesn’t break through ??? Nobody has canceled the pre-acrony exposure, and this is still the main problem! There are effective lining and shock-absorbing linings, but they also save at a decent distance (I don’t remember the exact data, but this is not a problem, the Internet helps). I remember the Americans put their next cool armor on the tests, to a 40 liter empty plastic canister, they fired from AK meters from 100-150 meters ... the cool American armor did not break through. Then they were asked: "And what will happen if you put it (armor) on a man weighing 80-90 kg and repeat the experiment?" Well, they smiled, as they like, something wept and drifted quietly away ... somehow.

        The kinetic energy of the bullet cannot be canceled. Having scattered it over the area, we’ll hit it across the entire chest. Multiply the mass by the square of speed, divide in half. Count for a different range. Objectively, from 100 to 300 meters. For AKM. The gun has a different bullet and the initial speed, RMB respectively rifle cartridge.

      It will withstand even with a heat-strengthened core, and the 4th level will withstand 14,5mm from 30 meters.
      This is at the NIJ (National Institute of Justice, USA), Russian classes are different.

        It will survive, only it will beat off all the liver.
        Life may save, but a fighter will fail, plus at least two for evacuation. In short, the goal is achieved, three are removed from the battle.
        Of course, it is humanism and all that, but in a war a soldier must run and shoot, at least. This is just the point for the police and anti-terror.
        I feel sorry for everyone, but I, as a commander, would be better off losing one than three.

          Your math is interesting.
          What do you mean by the word "lose"? If this is not participation in a battle, then you can simply NOT a killed fighter in this armor be given a chance to wait for the evacuation by fighters of other units. This is at least a chance to survive.
          You, as a commander, could not lose anyone.

            All modern bulletproof vests protect against armor injury as well.
            a large number of injuries occur due to fragments, small fragments have kinetic inertia of the pistol bullet, body armor effectively protects them. in addition, a bullet flying a long distance loses energy. the same bullet can hit at an angle and ricochet from a bulletproof vest.

        You have confused the protection class for armored vehicles and body armor. 14,5mm is KPVT, do you think there are bulletproof vests capable of holding it? KPVT will tear a person along with body armor of at least 6th grade.

        The 6A class keeps the armor-piercing field from the SVD at a distance of 5-10 m, while such armors weigh at least 15 kg, are not intended for permanent wearing, they are used only for special operations. The fighters who wear them are called "heavy"

    Such a bronic is good for police or riot police to disperse a crowd. And in a real battle a soldier in such a bronic will be completely unprotected. More precisely, it is protected from bullet wounds, but the blow will be of such force that it would be better to immediately bullet than torment

    The fact that IT is easier than water is progress! But it would be necessary to be lighter than air. Then it will be possible to drop troops not on planes and helicopters to the place of deployment, but directly on vests. It’s easy to bring down an airplane. And immediately a bunch of victims. But when a locust cloud flies on body armor - a strategically different situation! Here only shotguns will help. (joke)

          I think that the chance of survival rises sharply with body armor than without it. There’s nothing to think about, it’s easier to heal an injury from a blow than to then sew up and re-cut the flesh and redraw the insides.
