Abstract:

The results of ballistic tests indicate that, on the basis of resistance to perforation per unit weight, this material compares well 17-12 oz. nylon duck under impact of standard cal. .45 ball amunition but is inferior to that material under impact of cal. l22 fragment simulating, G-2. Various intervals of quitling and various combinations of this material with nylon duck failed to vary these results significantly.
