We all know that “bulletproof” is a bit of an exaggeration. “Proof” is just a challenge; there’s always something strong enough to get through it. Nevertheless, 4 inch Humvee glass is impressive stuff.
But not against a 20mm Typhon 20.
Edwin Sarkissian brings a team together to demonstrate this out in a windy middle-of-nowhere desert in Arizona. Setting up the 4 inch glass (or 3 1/2 according to Gasparito) with 2 aluminum blocks behind it, he situates the 20mm Typhon 20 uncomfortably close to the glass. Everyone is sure to stand way back!
The result is no joke. The 20mm blasts right through the glass like a birthday kid devouring his birthday cake. The slow motion footage captures the fiery bullet launching through the air. If a glass panel was capable of getting its air knocked out, well, it would be extremely dead. Hopefully no other Humvee glass panel ever finds itself in this position.
The footage is mesmerizing to watch in slow motion. Showing the shot from different angles so that you get a good look, it’s still worth it to rewatch. The impact is astronomical.
