Also the last round that the composite plate stopped was a 7.62x54mm API (Armour piercing incendiary). No trivial feat at near point blank range.
Well, at least the PLA has finally solved the body armor problem. I wonder what the shelf life of these body armor plates is. If their shelf life is longer than 5 years, then they could start stockpiling them. Also, hot weathers decrease the shelf life of these plates, so I guess the PLA could stockpile them in places like Qinghai, Northern Xinjiang, Yunnan, and Northeastern China.

I'm pretty sure Chinese companies have been making NIJ standard armour plate inserts for years. It's ubiquitous enough to be found on Alibaba.
In this video, the lvl4 plate stopped up to .338RUM w/ titanium tip
