Protection against armor piercing munition is indispensable today for armored vehicles which are deployed for international and peace-keeping missions.

A weight-optimized and fragment-free protection technology against the effect of anti-tank handheld weapons and other threats has been developed by Dynamit Nobel Defence in recent years and is under series production today. The protection tiles consist of passive and reactive protection elements and can be adapted quickly to many vehicles. Besides defeating most common shaped charge attacks the reactive protection system offers additional full protection against armor-piercing projectiles and EFP IEDs.
