Abstract

Metallic armor is the most mature class of armor materials and is still widely used for ballistic protection today. Although the materials for metallic armor are highly developed, new and innovative metallic armor systems are being used to improve the ballistic protection (while reducing the weight) of various weapon systems. Historically, most metallic armor evolved from designing materials to meet structural or other requirements rather than from designing specifically for ballistic protection. This design paradigm is changing; partly to meet the requirements for armed forces transformation to a lighter, more survivable and efficient force [1]. Metallic armor systems are now being designed to optimize mass, space and cost efficiency.
