SWAT units are now wearing Level IV body armor, not soft Level III.

The heavier armor available is why I have several hundred rounds of 7.62x51 API. If the tungsten core doesn't get you, the 3,000 degree incendiary will. And if I live long enough, no body armor in existence stops a .338 at close range. Head shots are the best option, but I doubt you will have time to aim that well. Dark, the invaders have probably thrown their 'diversion' devices (nice euphemism for flash grenade), and you are the one caught off-guard, not them. The only thing that will save you is something that throws them off their well rehearsed invasion rhythm.

Introduce confusion and panic. That is what they are counting on you being consumed with. Return the favor, and you have a chance, however small, of winning the engagement.

“The only thing that will save you is something that throws them off their well rehearsed invasion rhythm.”

Good advice. This guy might still be alive if he had an extra 5 seconds to figure out what was going on.

What a world we live in.

Well sorry but a .223 FMJ fired from an assault rifle at close range is lethal. There is a chance that the “armor” will stop it (even the more powered 7,62) but this is far away from given, Again we are talking about military armor! and not civilian or police body armor. 2 or 3 hits from a .223 asault (at close range) rifle will kill you no matter what body armor you where.
