High-speed penetration into non-homogenous (layered) targets is studied using approximate models. Ballistic performance of two three-dimensional conical impactors or thin impactors with the same longitudinal contours manufactured from the same material and having the same lengths of nose and cylindrical part is compared. It is demonstrated that when the ballistic performance of one of the impactors is better in penetrating a reference homogenous or non-homogenous shield then the same property remains valid for any other shield.
