Military Grade Special Type Armor (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Military Grade Special Type
Most bulletproof armor is made from ballistic panelling that chips away on impact, redirecting the force of a gunshot. This level of armor is designed for protection against explosives, such as grenades. It has the added benefit of functioning as a Level 3 Edged Blade vest. Commonly known as flak jackets, military and law enforcement personal expecting to work with explosives will don one of these.

Usage notes are unresearched speculation designed to give perspective only. The DOJ standard is only used to distinguish between different levels of armor, and applies generalizations so it can be adapted for D&D. Please, don't take this stuff literally.
