The development of my country's military body armor
In the late 1950s, relevant departments of the People's Liberation Army began to develop domestically produced body armor. In 1964, China successfully developed a glass fiber reinforced plastic bulletproof vest. This bulletproof vest uses 3mm thick glass fiber reinforced plastic sheets as bulletproof materials, which are connected in an armor shape, and is made of coats and shoulder pads with multiple layers of cotton. The weight is about 6-7 kg. After the outbreak of the Vietnam War, Chinese aid to Vietnam forces were often attacked by the US military. The US military often used steel ball bombs to kill our transport convoy. This kind of bomb can explode in mid-air and then shoot countless high-speed flying steel balls, which is extremely lethal. In order to solve this problem, the People鈥檚 Liberation Army Logistics Technology and Equipment Research Institute developed two types of bulletproof vests, glass fiber reinforced plastic-chrome steel jade-boron carbide composite structure and aluminum alloy structure from 1966 to the early 1970s, which are used to equip vehicles traveling to and from the Sino-Vietnamese border. The driver. To prevent the penetration of high-speed steel balls, this body armor is particularly thick and weighs several kilograms, so the number of equipment is small.
In the 1980s, the General Military Equipment Research Institute developed the TF90-54 and TF90-79 bulletproof vests. Both bulletproof vests are made of high-performance special bullet-proof steel, which can withstand the shooting of Type 54 pistols within 5 meters and Type 79 submachine guns within 10 meters. Due to various reasons, the People's Liberation Army has not officially equipped with bulletproof vests, so TF90-54 and TF90-79 have become export products. This is the 'Guardian' series of bulletproof vests we are familiar with.
Due to technical problems, the body armor we studied before did not have any formal equipment. At present, my country's body armor market is still developing very rapidly. The domestic military and police fields are equipped with different types of body armor to protect the body. First introduce a few comparisons with the previous ones.
Full-protection body armor is also called bulletproof vest, bulletproof clothing, bulletproof vest, this kind of bulletproof vest is mainly made of high molecular weight polyethylene, which is wear-resistant, not easy to deform, soften, low density, and light weight Compared with the previous, the weight is significantly reduced. Its defense level is the US NIJ standard IIIA level, which can resist 9mm bullets or point 44 bullets.
Soft bulletproof vests are also called bulletproof vests, bulletproof suits and bulletproof vests. They meet the standards of '2010GA-141' and 'Police bulletproof vests'. The main material of soft bulletproof vests is also high molecular polyethylene. It is a composite bullet-proof and stab-resistant suit with bullet-proof grade 7.62 lead core bullets.
Generally speaking, the performance of these two models is not much improved, but the weight is reduced a lot, and there are more humanized designs. The development of body armor plays an important factor in protecting the lives of soldiers. Although China is now in a peaceful age, it is still necessary once a war really breaks out, so we should always be prepared.
