Tactical Revolution – AJAX Armor System Overview

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

Tactical Revolution has recently released a video which functions as an overview of their AJAX Armor System.

The AJAX Armor System is intended to protect the gunner from enemy fire into his shoulder area which is more lightly armored than the chest. Consisting of a Picatinny rail mount and associated armored 46100 steel plates, AJAX weighs 1.46 lbs per mount and 3.6 lbs per plate. Naturally, this means it’s meant for use in fixed positions but it can quickly be mounted and dismounted from the weapon.

During last week’s SOFIC we mentioned the new AJAX Armor System from Tactical Revolution for use with crew served weapons in fixed positions that are not equipped with gun shields.

Now, we’d like to share the video of ballistic testing of the system so you can see that it works and why it has such an elaborate mounting system. In this high speed camera footage, you’ll notice how the plate returns to its proper position after mitigating the energy of the projectile strike.
