Maximum protection for dismounted Infantryman
Increasing asymmetric nature of warfare and ever evolving threats of IED's (Improvised Explosive Devices) along with assortment of lethal devices being used by insurgent forces make an enhanced tactical ballistic body armour, such as JMT XIVA, offering complete protection to dismounted infantryman, an ideal choice. Being on foot, they are the most easy targets for IED's or suicide bombers and upon enemy contact they are required to be swift in their counter response to mitigate and neutralise the present threat. JMT XIVA is a mix of UHMWPE and aramid materials offering excellent protection and comfort without restricting mobility of the soldier to perform routine tasks in performing their missions. JMT XIVA is capable of offering protection of up to NIJ Level IIIA which can be further enhanced against ammunition like AK-47, 7.62 NATO, 5.56 mm. etc. using hard up-armour inserts available separately.
Enhanced protection against ammunition like AK-47, 7.62 NATO, 5.56 mm. etc. can also be achieved by upgrading these over-vests with Armour Plates available separately.

JMT IV B
The concern for complete protection and combatant mortality, while in battle, has been high and will always be. Body armour is one of the most important protection gears of a soldier. Body Armour is the outer most piece of protective shield a soldiers wears over his torso to avoid lethal injuries to the crucial parts of the body. Traditional body armours were made from steel. But today's combat scenarios demand more agile and flexible armour. Today, body armour is made of high performance materials in heterogeneous combinations. It broadly comprises of an outer carrier, soft armour and hard armour to provide protection against various threats including handgun ammunition, rifle ammunition, fragments, stab, etc.. Additionally, critical areas like groin, neck, shoulders and sides can also be protected with additional ballistic attachments to a regular body armour.
ERGONOMICS AND AGILITY
A modern soldier’s body armour needs to be essentially comfortable and easy to wear for extended period of time. It needs to allow the soldier freedom of movement, agility and awareness. Badly designed body armour can hinder a soldier's movement and can pose a risk to his survivability jeopardising the success of his mission.
RUGGED, DURABLE, COMPATIBLE
Body armour needs to provide optimum protection in extreme conditions and climates.
It is also extremely important that body armour of a modern soldier seamlessly integrates with mission critical equipment required by a modern soldier.

Due to the vast numbers of bullets and calibers existing today, and more being developed
constantly, the number of conceivable threats is quite endless.
Although offering absolute protection against every developed & conceivable threat is a landmark that MKU aspires to achieve, its various personal protection products currently adhere, follow and conform to a variety of well defined international threat levels. Since the threats vary significantly with geographic locations, these threat levels show country wise modifications.
MKU constantly keeps itself aware of all major new ammunitions being developed and also of all minor/major modifications or upgrades to these international threat levels which are followed by a wide gamut of countries.
