The paper analyzes the available literature data on the properties of different materials currently used in the means of individual armor protection and the methods for improving their bulletproof and other service properties are evaluated. It is shown that at the present time to create the means of individual armor protection, a variety of materials are used: fabric aramid or polyethylene fibers, metal plates based on steels, titanium, aluminum and their alloys, as well as ceramics based on boron and silicon carbides, etc. The main advantages and disadvantages of these armored materials are shown. On the basis of literary data, it was established that for the 3-5 class of protection, the armored plates of structural alloyed steels were widely used. To minimize the disadvantages inherent in steel armored plates, it is necessary to use bimetallic compositions with alternating hard and soft layers, produced, among others, by welding or surfacing methods. 20 Ref., 4 Tab., 3 Fig.
