Which is the best model to capture brittle fracture and failure of ceramics at moderate velocities?

Several models have been developed over the past decades to capture the fracture and failure of ceramic materials. JH2, JHB models are widely used for simulating the behavior of armor plates upon ballistic impact. I have a doubt regarding these models. Are these models only valid when the impact velocity is in the order of 1000m/s, as under such circumstances material transitions from elastic to elastic-plastic regime defined by the HEL Pressure? But what about when the impact velocity of the ceramic is around 300-400 m/s (a fraction of ballistic impact)?
