Soft body armor is used in regular bullet and stab resistant vests, and hard armor, which is rigid reinforced body armor, and is, used in high risk situations by police tactical units and combat soldiers. Protective head gear mainly refers to high-quality helmets made of ballistic materials such as Kevlar and aramid, which possess excellent bullet and fragmentation stopping power. Vehicle armor refers to the armor plating used mainly in military vehicles to withstand the impact of shrapnel, bullets, missiles, or shells, protecting the personnel inside from the enemy attack.
