Ops-Core Sentry Helmet Saved Soldier from an AP round

I wouldn't call that random. Physics don't change. I mean bullets still fly exactly where their barrels shape them. They are affected by aerial dynamics in a consistent way per the wind/atmospheric conditions, and armor values are always the same in any identical scenario (including the millions of micro-variables like temperature, how old materials are, etc.). Nothing in warfare ever is really affected by the true random nature of quantum mechanics. It's just that you're dealing with such small variables that no human can realistically calculate all of them at any given time. Moving yourself over 1ft. to the left for example opens up about another 2,000 variables+. So humans learn to naturally accept those odds and stick with dealing with the bigger variables they can control - do they have ammo in the gun? Is their helmet mostly on their head? Is this cover "good enough"...
