In our collection of trophies, we have various armor plates from the occupiers’ body armor. The most interesting ones are the plates from the Ratnik kit – the pride of the occupiers. They consider these plates to be the best in the world. There are two modifications that meet the 5A and 6A standards and can withstand hits from AK (Kalashnikov assault rifle) bullets with 7.62 millimeters armor-piercing ammunition.
These ceramic-composite armor panels are made of a layer of ceramic tiles and a composite backing. Ceramic has a very high hardness-to-mass ratio. The ceramic outer layer effectively destroys the bullet, while the reinforced composite backing holds its fragments and ceramic shards.
Interesting art objects can be created from trophy armor plates that you will like and which will be symbols of the struggle of the Ukrainian people against the Russian occupiers.
