Sintered silicon carbide (SSiC) has superior performance to other materials used in ceramic composite armor panels. Effectively absorbs and dissipates energy from various weapons.
“When creating armored tiles, a special technology of cold isostatic pressing is used, improved by our specialists. This allows us to achieve a high-quality microstructure of products and stable strength characteristics. As a result, the final products are more durable, “lighter. and cheaper,” said Bekhan Ozdoev, industrial director of the Rostec State Corporation’s weapons complex, as reported on the state corporation’s website.
During tests, panels made of armored ceramic plates confirmed the high level of protection of Br5. They were able to provide protection not only from a machine gun shot, but also from damage from an SVD, even when using a bullet with an armor-piercing core.
