If we look at the 3rd edition 3mm Boron/carbon filament plate is an AC of 35.

This link provides the information required to calculate the weight of add-on armor for boron carbide https://www.eticeramics.com/products...etproof-plate/
That is a great link. I particularly loved reading this in the application section:

Boron Carbide Applications

The ability of boron carbide to absorb neutrons without forming long-lived radionuclides makes it attractive as an absorbent for neutron radiation arising in nuclear power plants and from anti-personnel neutron bombs.

Never know when the Krell will throw in an anti-personnel neutron bomb.
