The following advantages can be achieved by selecting Plasan engineering solutions for Light and Medium Tactical Wheeled Vehicles:
Protection levels are tailored to meet customer specified small arms threats, including artillery/mortar fragment and mine blast protection.
"Total System Engineering" ensures that the vehicle will continue to perform within the automotive and safety requirements set by the Original Equipment Manufacturer. When vehicle modifications are required to meet customer requirements, Plasan ensures the continued performance and safe operation of the vehicle through its own demanding in-house testing and recertification procedures.
Plasan engineering solutions will mix and match armor materials in a single application to achieve an optimum protection level for a minimum weight penalty. Plasan engineers do not believe that "one size fits all!"
