    Ballistic Standards
    There is no country in the world that has standards regulating the installation methods in armoured vehicle construction. Most technologically advanced countries howerver, do have testing standards for armoured materials. The following standards are considered as the norm in their country of origin and are often used in countries without armouring standards. 
    I .38 Special S&W .38 Special RN Lead 10.2g 5M
    IIA 9mm Pistol 9mm x 19 Para FMJ 8.0g 5M
    II .357 Magnum S&W .357 Magnum JSP 10.2g 5M
    IIIA .44 Magnum Colt .44 Magnum SWC/GC 15.55g 5M
    III AK47 Kalashnikov 7.62mm x 39 M43 VH 200-385 7.9g 5M
    IV SLR L1A1 7.62mm x 51 M80 Ball 9.7g 5M
    V Dragunov SVD 7.62mm x 54r ST2M HS Penetrator 9.6g 5M
    V M16 5.56mm x 45 M193 3.56g 5M

    Note: FDIG's level of protection is based in part, on the United States Institute of Justice (N.I.J.) standard 0108-01.
    Abbreviations: FMJ-Full Metal Jacket, JSP-Jacketed Soft Point, RN-Round Nose, SWC-Semi Wadcutter, g-Gram, gr-Grain
    All tests conducted are based upon average velocity of selected ammunition

    There may be other standards that should be taken into consideration depending upon where the client is domiciled. 

    Armoured levels of protection are similar in many countries. As testing standards vary, the materials may be of a different thickness and quality to match each standard of armoured level. 

    When choosing armouring levels, FDIG assists the client to decide which projectile they wish to defeat, due to the inconsistencies of armouring levels in the armoured vehicle manufacturing industry. Reference should be made to the type of weapons available to terrorists in the country or state in which the car will be used. For example, level two armour would be useless in the Middle East or Eastern Europe where AK-47 rifles (Kalashnikov) are easily obtained. 

    As levels of protection become greater, there are obviously cost differences associated with each level of projectile that must be defeated.
