Abstract
A short study was undertaken to see if the ballistic performance of 1/4" RHA steel plates can vary from batch-to-batch. Several random samples from the DRDC Valcartier stock were tested in a V50 test using a 5.56-mm Bofors armour piercing round. Small but statistically significant variations in the V50 were found even though all the samples were within the accepted standards for RHA.
