RMA Armament has been hard at work developing many new products since the turn of the calendar year. One of the latest, fully tested plates to hit the market is the Special Rifle Threat (SRT) plate.
This plate is a hybrid plate, bridging the ballistic standards, weight requirements and price point gaps between RMA's IIIa hard and soft armor and its NIJ Certified Level III plate.
The theory behind the development of the SRT plate is to provide the lowest cost/lowest weight solution rifle plate on the market. And this plate does exactly that.
Constructed out of UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene), this plate will defeat a pair of the two most popular rounds out there; the 7.62x39 (AK 47) and the 5.56x45 rounds.
Possibly the best part however, is that this brand new SRT plate weighs just 2.05 lbs!
That means, if you combine a pair of SRT plates with the Shellback Tactical Banshee plate carrier, the total weight of the kit would come in at a hair over 6 lbs., 5 oz.
