Body Armor that stopped a 50 BMG

It actually stopped an AP 50 BMG round....

I'd think the hit would still likely be lethal though. That is ALOT of energy, and I think internal organs would shear and hemorrhage.

I'll take your word for it, since I bet nobody is dumb enough to test it out! Maybe they could use it to wrap vehicles though?

There's too much money and free time with some people. Besides, who's to say the bullet is going to hit square in the plate like that guy did. My brother was telling me the people he saw shot in Nam with the 50...one shot would cut a man in two...blow a leg off like snapping a twig.
