ok I can do this,,,only a bunch of dopes would hang armor like a swing and call it protection. Is that how you're going to protect your self in a real
what the ceramic does is creates a cushion to expand the projectile prior to penetration. Mass of the slug is not variable unless projectile comes
apart. Impact energy is relative to the size of the projectile. The ceramic offers a medium to expand the projectile to lessen or bleed off the impact
energy do to the size per mass getting bigger.
take your 4 pound feather pillow out of a cannon at 4700 feet per second shoot it at a tank
take a 4lb. depleted uranium 30mm round out of a gun at 4700 feet per second,
now which one will kill the tank?
Glaze a tank and maybe the ceramic would turn the 30mm into a pillow but I wouldnt bet my life on it
but you see the point of the ceramic and why it does what they say it will do
a solid copper or other harder than lead projectile oh say .22cal make it a 220swift would penetrate your plate I bet maybe even on your swing set
you got there
