Abstract : The patent discloses a low carbon-low alloy content steel which is highly responsive to thermal-mechanical processing with air hardening capability. The steel is compatible process-wise with typical tool steels useful in the impact layer of armor. The alloy steel of this invention yields a high toughness material useful as the backing material for the impact layer of armor.
