Oct. 19, 2022, Miami, FL – RTS Tactical has launched the new Level III+ Rifle Special Threat Rated Mini Shield. Starting at 11 pounds, the RTS Tactical Mini Shield is designed to offer quick deployment for protection against brutal special threat rounds.

The RTS Tactical Mini Shield stops rounds like 5.56x45mm 62 gr. M855 (Green Tip), Russian 7.62x39mm 123 gr. MSC (M43), and 7.62x51mm NATO M80 FMJ used in short barrel rifles and commonly found in active shooter situations. The Mini Shield is equipped with a heavy-duty handle, oversized trauma pad system, and quick release buckle for maximum effectiveness in the field.

Mendel Berns, Marketing Director at RTS Tactical, shares, “After consulting with police departments, we received feedback that most departments are in need of ballistic shields. However, due to their cost and availability, they are difficult to procure for every patrol vehicle. With the new RTS Tactical Mini Shield we are enabling every officer to have Special Threat Rifle Rated Protection when they need it most.”

The Mini Shield is available in three sizes: 12 X 18 inches, 14 X 24 inches, and 16 X 30 inches.
