Armored Cars Specification

 

Armored Cars:

 

Our armored cras include a variety of models and chasis in the market which includes luxary cars to SUV with better power and chasis carrying capacities to higher level armoring and protections.

 

General Specifications considered in Armoring:

Construction will integrate opaque/transparent materials and vehicle structural design in such a manner as to withstand and balance structural loads while affording optimum protection throughout the entire passenger compartment (component design).  No gaps will be permitted between opaque armor mating surfaces; opaque to transparent armor transition at front side; rear of passenger or cargo compartment; along all passenger compartment door lines. All opaque armor materials joining on the same plane are overlapped.

Armoring of the rear cargo area is optional however can be done on request. The rear cargo area does not need to be accessed from the passenger compartment. Armor materials is incorporated in such a manner as to allow maximum passenger comfort while limiting alterations to the original design to the maximum extent possible.
 

Suspension system, attachment points and related infrastructure components are modified to meet after armoring mass of vehicle. Brake system accommodates after-armoring mass of vehicle and be of such design as to ensure against excessive brake fade and/or failure at high speed (100 mi/h plus) and/or repeated use. Drive shaft and couplings (attachment points) and related infrastructure components shall be reinforced to accommodate increased vibration/stress due to additional weight of the armor mass.

Protection Standards Considered during Armoring:

A. Ballistic classification: Minimum ballistic protection will l provide against 7.62 East Block ammunition (7.62 x 39, M43, SC) fired from a rifle and be in accordance with testing procedures utilized by the Bundeskriminalamt (BKA), , , Germany and/or U.S. testing certification procedures. All opaque (steel or other bulletproof material) and transparent (bulletproof glass) armor shall completely protect vehicles interior passenger compartment area (100%) including roof and floor areas. Seems, joints, gaps, or holes occurring at door openings, with armor panels, between opaque and transparent armor boundaries, shall be constructed such that a projectile following a linear or angled path shall not enter the vehicles interior without contacting the armor material. Specific areas of the engine compartment (i.e. firewall-dashboard area, hood, and wheel must be covered to ensure no penetration of the passenger compartment.

B. Opaque armor: Vehicle will afford ballistic protection for the protection level specified. All opaque armor materials shall be given a protective coating, which ensure a smooth surface and allow for effective inspection of armor materials for cracks.

C. Transparent armor: Transparent armor shall be of one-piece construction with anti-spall inner layer. Transparent armor shall be PPG, Isoclima, Triplex or Sully, of glass-plastic (polycarbonate), laminated construction and shall have a material alone capability of meeting or exceeding the ballistic protection specified above. Exposed polycarbonate surface shall be treated with an abrasion-resistant coating. Manufacturer’s markings shall be concealed to the maximum extent possible within the border.

D. Armor materials shall be incorporated in such a manner as to allow maximum passenger comfort while limiting alterations to the original design to the maximum extent possible.

E. Suspension system, attachment points and related infrastructure components shall be modified to meet after armoring mass of vehicle systems. Brake system shall accommodate after-armoring mass of vehicle and be of such design as to ensure against excessive brake fade and/or failure at high speed (100 mi/h plus) and/or repeated use.

F . Drive shaft and couplings (attachment points) and related infrastructure components shall be reinforced to accommodate increased vibration/stress due to additional weight of the armor mass.

G. Specific vehicle acceleration, braking and cornering at after armoring mass weight on dry surface should allow for positive controls at all times; performance degradation over unarmored comparably equipped make, series, model should not exceed 15% in braking distance.

H. Armor materials may be secured by welding, bolting or bonding. Method of attachment shall ensure structural integrity and protection of the passenger compartment. Method of armor materials fixation shall preclude dislodgement by ballistic/explosives device or vehicle accident and withstand vibration and/or shifting under normal operating conditions.

I. Locking gas cap: The contractor shall install a steel covered locking gas cap and supply keys representatives if vehicle is not equipped. Tailpipe protection: The contractor shall install a 6.35 mm by 6.35 mm, twenty (20) gage, stainless-steel mesh in the tailpipe or a 6-10mm bolt; nut to be spot welded.

J. Floor armor: Armoring of entire floor area, passenger compartment. Installation must ensure against 3 gaps and sufficient overlapping with other opaque areas within passenger compartment. Flexible/matted installation is permissible however exposed, fraying edges will not be accepted. Minimum protection level acceptable to
withstand blasts underneath the vehicle (hard or soft surface) from two (2) German ordnance, grenades and/or similar blasts.

K. Others as per your requirement for accessories and extra needs: second battery (backup) with primary-secondary switch easily accessible to the vehicle operator.. Batteries shall be armor protected same level as shown above,  tampering alarm,, interior/exterior loudspeaker system, up-grade vehicle electrical system (alternator), engine cooling system (radiator/oil cooler/transmission cooler) and power steering .

Armoring Standards

 

We use standard for ballistic resistant protective materials This standard is applicable to all ballistic resistant materials (armor) intended to provide protection against gunfire, with the exception of police body armor and ballistic helmets, which are the topic of individual NIJ performance standards. Many different types of armor are now available that range in ballistic resistance from those designed to protect against small-caliber handguns to those designed to protect against high-powered rifles.

Ballistic resistant materials are used to fabricate portable ballistic shields; to provide ballistic protection for fixed structures, such as critical control rooms or guard stations; and to provide ballistic protection for the occupants of vehicles. The ballistic resistant materials used to fabricate armor include metals, ceramics, transparent glazing, fabric, and fabric-reinforced plastics; they are used separately or in combination, depending upon the intended threat protection.

The ballistic threat posed by a bullet depends, among other things, on it's composition, shape, caliber, mass, and impact velocity. Because of the wide variety of cartridges available in a given caliber, and because of the existence of hand loads, armors that will defeat a standard test round may not defeat other loadings in the same caliber. For example, an armor that prevents penetration by a 357 Magnum test round may or may not defeat a 357 Magnum round with a higher velocity. Similarly, for identical striking velocities, non-deforming or armor-piercing rounds pose a significantly greater penetration threat than an equivalent lead core round of the same caliber.
