Assault III LW
The next generation of Assault Shield line integrates Level III rated rifle protection in a lightweight profile. Utilizing the latest technology in UPMWPE materials from Honeywell, the Assault LW features a triangular viewport that allows for increased vertical visibility for the operator. Capable of stopping the 7.62 x 51mm, 147 gr. M80 FMJ (NATO), the Assault III LW is only 20.4 lbs. providing additional ballistic coverage area when needed.
Not only is the Assault LW NIJ 0108.01 compliant, but it is also capable of stopping five impacts of the 5.56 x 45mm M193 and 7.62 x 39mm MSC special threat rounds.
In addition to the standard NIJ 0108.01 shot pattern, the viewport is also tested along with the bolts. The shield is also tested with 1” edge shot, 30-degree angle shots, a 3 shot cluster and 3 shots in a linear line (in between shot)
