HESCO’s 200 series plates have been designed with discretion in mind. They can be worn wherever deep concealability is crucial for specific mission requirements. These plates are light yet strong enough to stop powerful rifle projectiles. They can also stop light armor-piercing (AP) rounds too. This Special Rifle Threat (SRT) armor plate is ideal for even very high threat level environments while being easily concealable due to its low visibility profile.
The L210 is perfectly capable of defeating common military caliber rifle rounds such as the 7.62×39 AP rounds as well as 7.62×39 MSC. It is also highly effective against NATO’s standard 5.56×45 M855 green tip ball ammo.
The HESCO L210 offers full compatibility with the BI L110 SRT Stand Alone Side Plates. Taken together, they offer complete protection and cover the heart and other vital organs against both side and front shots.
HESCO products have been protecting our brave service personnel on the frontlines and other battlefields for over two decades. They are the armed forces’ first choice because they have been precision engineered to surpass even the most rigorous NJI standards.
