Model 4800 (USML Category X(d)(1)) is subject to the
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). It may not
be sold or otherwise provided to any non-U.S. Person and/or
exported or re-exported without a valid U.S. Department of State
DDTC export license, or applicable ITAR license Exemption.
Tested and verified to meet or exceed ballistic
resistance as specified under NIJ Standard–0101.06
plus Special Rifle Threats validated
NIJ Certification of hard armor
requires submission of 10” x 12” test
plates which must demonstrate the ability
to defeat specific rounds tested to a valid
NIJ shot pattern, after exposure to a stringent
conditioning protocol to simulate aging and wear.
Level III requires six M80 rounds per plate. Level IV
requires one AP M2 per plate.
NIJ’s process provides for the inclusion of other size
torso plates of identical construction to be included
under the Certification without further NIJ testing.
Hesco holds itself to a higher standard by publishing
the minimum number of shots that each size plate
can be expected to defeat under similar NIJ testing
methods, as well as listing many additional threats not
addressed under the NIJ Certification process. The
minimum number of shots are shown in the Threat
