6th Generation - Ballistic Armour Technology from MKU
Ultra Light Weight, Thinner and more Flexible
The 21st century combat soldiers are better protected, better informed and more lethal than ever. But all this extra capability comes at a price – weight. The physical limitations of individual soldiers, stress, and the weight of the equipment and ammunition all affect and hinder the soldier's movement and combat effectiveness.
Depending upon the mission type i.e attack, combat, patrol, pursuit, counter attack, Reconnaissance/intelligence gathering, hostage rescue or urban contact, a combat soldier, on an average carries 36 - 40 Kg of weight on him. (around 22-25 Kg. of ammo, batteries, water and extras needed to combat and survive, and about 17-20 Kg. of body armour, helmet and other wearables). Body armor is probably the heaviest single item the average soldier carries.
The R&D team at MKU has always believed in the 'Less is More' principal while researching and developing its ballistic armour solutions. The lesser the weight that a soldier carries, higher would be his combat effectiveness.
Its team of engineers based in Germany and India are constantly working on decreasing the load quotient of a soldier. It has managed to bring down the weight of its body armour by more than 10 % in every generation of its protection technology.
The 6th Generation of its armouring technology raises the benchmarks further. It deploys the latest and most advanced materials coupled with newer manufacturing techniques to offer solutions that are upto 40% lighter, almost 30% thinner and approx 50% more flexible than similar standard solutions.
