A test that examines the effectiveness of armor from the Middle Ages in a collision with modern weapons was conducted by a fellow.
It is worth noting that the same body armor was almost the only means of protecting human life in battle in the pre-gunpowder era. And then she coped with two tasks at once: protecting the fighter and providing him with a sufficiently high level of mobility.
Oddly enough, such armor also does an excellent job with a modern rifle. Yes, not without difficulty. But at the same time, the shot did not pass into the body of the mannequin, which was wearing armor.
True, it is worth considering that when a live projectile hits the body, some organs may be damaged. But in order to find out this point, you need to conduct a separate test.
