Using approximate model for impactor-armor interaction it is showed that the maximum (minimum) ballistic limit velocity for a multi-layered shield with a given surface density for a conical-nosed impactor is achieved when a shield is manufactured from the material which is characterized by a maximum (minimum) ratio of a distortion pressure to density.
