Vehicle Armoring Protection Levels

Texas Armoring Corporation offers four levels of ballistic protection to meet client needs (all premium armoring packages include lightweight composite armor). Armoring levels range from low-level handgun protection to ultra-high-level armor-piercing rifle protection. With a wide range of protection offerings, TAC can produce vehicles suitable for low risk areas like the United States and Canada and also for high-risk areas like Latin America, West Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia:

  • Handgun/Pistol Protection - T4 (NIJ IIIA/European B4)
  • High-power Rifle Protection - T6 (NIJ III/European B6+)
  • Armor-piercing Rifle Protection - T7 (NIJ IV/European B7 Single-Shot)
  • Extra Armor-piercing Rifle Protection - T8 (NIJ IV+/European B7 Multi-Shot)
