Levels of Protection

Survive IED & Current Threats
 

Levels of Protection

Current threats include:
  • Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) which project steel fragments at high velocity (many times faster than a typical 7.62)
  • Fully automatic assault rifles for multiple hits in close proximity to each other (AK-47) combined with more prevalent armor piercing ammunition with hardened steel cores
  • Compound attacks such as IED followed by armor piercing rounds (Resisting such attacks requires a totally integrated system design; i.e. interlocking door overlaps to better protect against bullets at an angle and continuous steel blast structures to prevent fragments from entering a passenger cell.)
