Reaction bonded silicon carbide (RBSC) ceramics demonstrate high performance at ballistic protection applications. Biomorphic SiSiC ceramics based on wooden preforms and manufactured via pyrolysis and liquid silicon infiltration (LSI) are considered as a promising armor material due to their remarkable level of physical properties and a cost benefit. Manufacturing process, structure and physical properties of the biomorphic RBSC and their fracture behavior under ballistic impacts have been studied. The armor systems based on the biomorphic RBSC ceramic tiles of various thicknesses can defeat 7.62x51-mm NATO Ball FMJ, 7.62x54R LPS, 7.62x63-mm AP M2 ammunitions.
