Tni Cell 87
dealing with kevlar
Some things to keep in mind about kevlar vests in firefights
1 an 01 still headshots and kills. A matched success still ignores the kevlar (hit something unprotected)
2 A called shot (to arms legs head or hand) ignores kevlar. There are plenty of arteries to sever not in the torso.
3 Any rifle caliber above 22lr kills the vest in one hit. Any unreasonable rifle or pistol caliber kill the vest in one hit and do half damage. A 50 ae is unreasonable and 12 gauge slug is not. Also, 12 guage shot counts like a pistol shot.
4 a knife goes through kevlar.
5 Kevlar vests are illegal to wear while in comission of crime (especially arms possesion). Being caught with an unregistered handgun and a kevlar vest is very very bad. Also, wearing a kevlar vest without good reason (being a bodyguard on duty) is likely to have the police by VERY suspicious.
6 Kevlar vests are not cheap or inconspicuous. Tni provides agents with an active duty vest, not an arsenal.
7 Kevlar vests are not invisible. Npcs can notice you’re wearing one, and they will be unlikely to react favorably.
