The armored vehicle designed in order to guard the vehicles, which bearing employees or VIP, from ballistic bullets and plastic explosives. There is no notable alteration in the appearance of the vehicles after being armored. Variation of ballistic materials that are presented by EOW is proper for armoring civil and nonmilitary vehicles. At the end of the armoring process, no excessive load would be added to the vehicle. The armor has high resistance and provides ballistic protection to the entire of the vehicle including subcritical components. Vehicles with high engine capacity are preferred for the armoring due to the additional weight resulted from the shield. Door hinges of the determined vehicle altered with durable ones that are suitable for use in the heavy armored vehicles. The hinges used in the armored vehicle have high resistance against the heaviness resulted from armoring. Dashpot supply can be provided as optional in order to facilitate switching the door. The door hinges attached to the main body of the vehicle; thus, the armor not burdened with additional weight.
During the armoring process, a minimum intervention executed on the engine, suspension, and gearbox system of the vehicle. Ballistic ceramic and covering are heavier and provide higher ballistic resistance compared with other armoring materials. In fact, ballistic ceramic provides at the rate of as far as %30 acquisition of weight compared with other elements.
Ballistic Transparent Glass
Ballistic transparent glass, used for armoring, manufactured as being multi-level in order to prevent the employee from getting damaged by hittings and explosives. Polycarbonate inner layer preserves the employee in the vehicle from exploded glass that results from possible ballistic attacks. The stratified armor structure protects the employee from getting damaged in case of more than one attack. The glass can fall into ruin after being hit by the ballistic shot but never splinter. It has endurance against shock waves occurring after explosive or shooting. Fragments of the glass never hurt the employee. The resistance of the glasses of the armored vehicle against explosives is one of the most important safety barriers. The main structure, doors, bottoms of the glasses and the whole other corners of the armored vehicle are interlaced. The vehicle equipped as not letting bullets and pieces of glasses to enter into the passenger compartment.
The wheels are flattened. It can move forward nearly 50 km on the explosion with the possibility of laceration. A plastic ballistic rubberization cylinder hoop used in the wheels. They can be used as in solid phase without air in case it blows out. The ballistic wheel is an optional feature.
The external surfaces of the fuel tanks coated with a special ballistic isolation material that has delicate to the explosion. The ballistic material is fire-proof. Original dry accumulators of the armored vehicle shifted with gel ones. Vital parts in the bonnet preserved by placing them in the boxes coated with a steel cover. The whole ballistic cover can be disassembled easily in case of maintaining the vehicle or transferring it to another region. The electric wiring including the main breaker is under protection against bullet and explosion. Bonnet, bottom ground, and the foot switches of the vehicle are coated with ballistic steel material.
Front and rear buffers of the vehicle are strengthened in order to prevent the dashes cause harm to the gearbox of the vehicle. Thus, the wheels keep operating in case of dashes coming from front or rear.
Armoring the internal part of the Armored Vehicle
The whole grounds of the vehicles coated with multi-level ballistic fabric. The multi-level feature preferred in order to absorb the energy occurring after explosions. It presented as being optional; each vehicles’ ground can be coated if requested. Ballistic coverings used in the passenger compartment provide protection against till 50-52 degrees heat.
The ground designed as having high resistance against the explosion of two hand grenades and another burst which equal with it. The ground covered with ballistic steel material having at least 4.5 mm thickness. The ballistic materials welded as having furthest 0.5 mm blanks between each other. Fibered nut bolt used for armoring the vehicle instead of screw or rivet.
Emergency wasteway channel, emergency signal system, and additional security systems
An emergency wasteway channel can be designed on the rear or the ceiling of the vehicle for ballistic explosions and ballistic bullet attack that the vehicle is exposed to. Additionally, on the condition that the connections between the vehicle and the outside being cut by a jammer device, emergency signals dispatched by another raceway. This feature is optional. Evacuating fans determined in the cabinet for interior gunpowder fume. Firing ports, adaptable with different types of gun systems, can be mounted on the left, right, and front doors for long barreled weapons if requested. Firing ports can be collapsed with shield grids, which are manufactured from ballistic steel. The ballistic apron provides to the vehicle superior protection against side blowouts. A heating and a cooler system situated in the vehicle. Airflow is procured by an external vent in case a fault occurs in the air-conditioner.
In the vehicle armoring process, the coating made according to the requested ballistic resistance. Caliber and variation of ammunition are essential.
The ballistic steel material used to armor the BR7 BR6 Armored Vehicle.
7 types of vehicle armoring level indicated in European unions EN 1522 and EN 1063 standards.
Accepted opinion in armoring the nonmilitary type vehicles is B6 or B7. B1 and B2 levels are generally not preferred as they have resistance against cartridge bullets with 9 millimeters and less. B3/B4 levels perform endurance against magnum bullets and less. B5 shows endurance against magnum bullets and less; ak47 from a specific distance and aspect. B6/B7 has resistance and protection against magnum and Kalashnikov bullets. B5, B6, B7 armoring levels have excellent protection against improvised explosives.
The armored vehicle and the whole alterations are presented to the receiver before the treatment. Supply resources of the entire bullet-proof materials that used in the armoring and the certificates of whole bullet-proof glasses ensured to the receivers. Testing certificates of the whole insulation and armoring equipment that used in the armored vehicle are presented.
