" Three years after it was realized the CMF (Composite metal foam) could provide superior protection against bullets and be much lighter as well, the theory was put to the test and it worked. This was done by modifying existing composite armor designs by substituting CMF for steel. This resulted in armor that weighed less and had superior stopping power."
Could Composite Metal Foam Be The Next Big Thing In Armor?

Maybe for ships, but the relatively low density of foams makes me think they may only be good in the
stopping capability : weight
stopping capability : thickness
That would be quite the same as for structural tasks.
