Type III Bulletproof Armor (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Type III Bulletproof Armor
Most bulletproof armor is made from ballistic paneling that chips away on impact, redirecting the force of a gunshot. Type III is designed for protection against military grade rifles. It's the standard-issue armor of professional soldiers. While not the heaviest armor for the task, this gets the job done.
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.
