These are such general questions for such an equipment specific scenario.

Do you need trauma pads behind a hard armor plate thats a (stand alone)
If the plates are military post mid-2010 manufacture then no. They have been extensively tested and are true stand alone. Non-military issue it is difficult to say as manufactures use different definitions of "stand alone". Anything that produces serious back deformation can hurt or even kill you.

Or would just a plain LVL IIA, II or IIA pad versus the trauma pad be better, as I under stand it trauma pads don't stop bullets, just catch blunt force, so soft armor be better?
I am not sure I understand your question. Soft armor and trauma pads generally are in no way better than IIIa+ hard armor.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
