DKX IIIA Hard Armor Plate Tested Against the FN57

Evan tests the Phalanx Defense Systems DKX M2 Level IIIA hard plates:

“In this video, Evan tested our Level IIIA hard armor plate also known as the M2 against the FN57. The ammunition used was the FN SS197SR 5.7x28mm (FN 40 Grain Hornady V-Max). As with any test conducted outside of an approved laboratory, this video shows anecdotal evidence under uncontrolled conditions and isn’t intended to guarantee any level of performance.”

Highlights in the armor video:

  • Shot Level 3A  plate from 7 yards
  • Minimal back face deformation comparable to less than a 9mm round (the damage cause when the impact is absorbed by the plate)
  • Nothing penetrated (went through the plate)

Rounds Used:

  •  FN SS197SR 5.7x28mm
