Armoring Configuration B6 (example)
1.     Armor Conversion Modifications / Alterations
  • Five side armoring of passenger compartment (roof and verticals) to provide protection against 7.62x51mm M80 NATO Ball ammunition at zero degree obliquity angles.
  • Floor of the vehicle is fitted with a blast protection to protect occupants against fragmentation from simultaneous detonation of two  DM-51 German ordnance hand grenades or equivalent.
  • Vehicle’s armor plates are stitch-welded using high-intensity MIG welders. The above process ensures the structural integrity is uncompromised by thermal and chemical variations of the material.
  • Ballistic steel interior frame provides overlap and backup protection for the large-surface principal impact areas such as the doors and windows. All door/window openings are overlapped.
  • Some OEM vehicle features/equipment may be removed or disabled to accommodate for the installation of the armoring materials and other equipment required as a part of the armoring.

2.     Glass
  • A combination of glass, polycarbonate and Mylar are bonded together using the latest technology, producing one of the finest transparent armors available while incorporating the following qualities:

     Glass thickness: 39mm.

     Anti-spall shield protecting against shattering glass.

     Multiple impact protection.


3.     Interior
  • All original OEM interior panels and trim will be resized or modified and re-installed wherever possible to obtain as close to an original look as possible.
  • The cargo area of the vehicle is protected by a swing door with view glass/gunport, without disrupting the original manufacturer’s appearance.

4.     Doors
  • Armor overlap at all doors to prevent penetration through door posts and pillars.
  • Door pillars reinforced to accommodate the additional weight of the armored door.
  • Heavy Duty door hinges, designed and manufactured for extended longevity and easy maintenance.
  • Heavy Duty door travel retainers.

5.     Electrical
  • All electrical equipment standard to this vehicle shall be tested and modified as necessary to protect against the armoring process.
  • Any additional (optional) electric equipment installed on the vehicle shall be individually fused; all wires are loomed and clearly marked, as required by vehicle safety standards.

6. Run Flat Tyres
  • Runflat devices fitted in all vehicle tires.
