Spartan Armor Systems will be featuring its new Hercules Lite RF2 Level III+/RF2 rated armor plate, offering balanced protection and performance in a standalone plate. It is engineered to stop M80 BALL as well as advanced non-armor piercing threats, namely M855. The Hercules Lite provides full edge-to-edge coverage in a SAPI medium 9.5×12.5 in. design, weighing in at just 4 lbs. per plate with a 1 in. thickness.
