The aim of the paper is to determine the correlation between mechanical properties determined in quasi-static tensile tests and dynamic compression tests, and resistance to perforation and cracking in firing tests of nanostructured bainitic steel sheets. The relationship between mechanical characteristics and ballistic resistance makes it possible to specify and optimise the production parameters of steel elements for armour and shields providing ballistic protection. As a result of the tests,
