These two factors indicate that the commonly used, experimental confinement systems are inappropriate for practical ceramic armour. Instead, to maximise the performance of a practical ceramic armour system, it is necessary to attempt to mimic the effects of massive confinement by suitable manipulation of the stresses generated during impact, using the lightest possible configuration. The requirements of practical ceramic armour systems generally go beyond the maximisation of single impact performance.

73 Ref. 26 Ref. 13 Ref. 75 Ref. (10) CHOICE OF CERAMIC MATERIAL The ballistic mass effectiveness of ceramic materials is dependent upon the armour configuration and the threat projectile. However, if the experiment is well designed, a reliable general ranking of mass effectiveness may be measured across a range of threats. 5mm heavy machine gun rounds and 30mm and 40mm APFSDS projectiles. Some of the materials investigated are detailed in Table 2. An average ballistic mass effectiveness has been calculated for impact from these projectiles in a number of configurations, for these materials.
