11 New Assault Bulletproof Shield For Russian Fighters

New Assault Bulletproof Shield For Russian Fighters

Posted on December 17, 2012 by team

This is a unique development of Russian scientists for the army of the country. A new assault bulletproof shield was called "Zabor" ("Fence") which could be probably also listed in this post of today.

This powerful shield has a 5-class protection and can stop bullets of AKM, SVD, and even fragments of grenades, however it is rather heavy - 50 kilograms (110 lb).

Across the network:


As you can see it has a special corset with straps for fastening on a soldier's torso, the shield itself inserts into special grooves on the corset.
Although it is a powerful shield and can protect from almost any weapon mentioned above, it cannot be called rather comfortable.

One cannot put it on himself, putting it off is even more difficult.

    The fellow who wears this must have his balls fashioned from the same material.

    It protects the torso, but not the head, nor the arms, nor the legs. Plenty of ways to disable a soldier thus…

    7.62×39, 7.62×51 NATO, 7.62×54, and such will penetrate this thing with ease. Yes, no chance with a Makarov although.

      You need to work on your reading comprehension skills. It clearly states that the shield can stop AKM and SVD round (i.e. 7.62×39 and 7.62×54 respectively). Whether it can stop the armor-piercing rounds is another question (although those rounds are rather specialized and a rarity amongst criminals/terrorists).

        True mate… Manta -► Today only 3kg plate will stop 7.62×54 rounds without penetration (Its NIJ IV class)

        Rare? Hell I have a box of 500 7.62×51 AP and another 250 of API in the closet, and I have nothing to do with the military.

        • Karl says:

          Just because you have several hundred rounds of it doesn’t make it not rare. You just happen to be one of a few people that own a quantity of it.

    better than nothing, but using steel in 2012 is like using a horse instead of a car.

  5. davepen says:

    That looks more like breaching and raid protection. No soldier in the field is going to wear a steel curtain.
