M134 Minigun Vs. AR-500 Body Armor Plating – How Does It Hold Up With Heavy Fire?
Arms And Armor.
In 1893 the mayor of Chicago was gunned down by gangsters and the city spiraled into fear. A Catholic Priest named Casimir Zeglen took it upon himself to save Chicago from tyrants by crafting silk cloths together to create the first bulletproof vest. Over time weapons have become more powerful as have the armor, so how do they still hold up against each other?
On one side of the coin, we have the AR500 body armor and on the other, we have the M134 Minigun. The AR500 body armor is relatively cheap yet it comes with power defensive capabilities, so you get some bang for your buck. Meanwhile, the M134 Minigun has been a staple of gunners for who like to fire 6,000 rounds per minute.
They both have some pretty top-notch reputations for reliability, but the real question is how do they stack up against each other? The guys from FullMag put it to the test in this clip, so now you can see the clear winner in a test of heavy weapon vs. thick armor.
