The most heavily armoured vehicles today

Post by Admin on Wed Oct 16, 2013 10:35 pm

The most heavily armoured vehicles today are the main battle tanks, which are the spearhead of the ground forces, and are designed to withstand anti-tank missiles, kinetic energy penetrators, NBC threats and in some tanks even steep-trajectory shells.
The Israeli Merkava tanks were designed in a way that each tank component functions as additional back-up armour to protect the crew. Outer armour is modular and enables quick replacement of damaged armour.

Some spacecraft are equipped with specialised armour to protect them against impacts from micrometeoroids or fragments of space junk.
Modern aircraft powered by turbine engines usually have them fitted with a sort of armour in the form of an aramid composite kevlar bandage around the fan casing or of debris containment walls built into the casing of their gas turbine engines to prevent injuries or airframe damage should the fan/compressor/turbine wheel disintegrate.

The most popular large SUVs and luxury sedans vehicles unlike the warning stickers so often associated with car alarms, there are no indicators on the vehicles that they are more like a tank than a simple, if opulent, means of transportation.
Therefore, that blackout windowed SUV that just sped by may be protecting the likes of the Koch Brothers or, to be fair, Stephen Spielberg. But you’ll never know and that’s just the way they like it.
The level of desired protection varies by locale. Affluent Brazilian and South African clients are interested in vehicles protected against small matters, while prosperous Nigerian clients require a higher level of protection.

For a mere $65,000 – $85,000 you can have armor plate vehicles family ride and keep the rabble from committing mayhem on you and yours, Mark Burton, founder and CEO of International Armoring Corporation, based in Salt Lake City said.
The company was founded by Burton in Ogden, Utah in 1993 with a planned production of 24 armor plate vehicles, however, more than 225 armor plate vehicles were built in the first year of business and about 8,000 have been built since.

The most popular vehicles are large SUVs and luxury sedans, but Burton at International Armoring Corporation says that the type of vehicle doesn’t matter; whether it’s a Range Rover or a Nissan Versa, he can fix you up. As long as you’ve got the dough, he’s got the armor plating.
Utilizing Armormax,  IAC’s patented bullet-resistant blend of synthetic fiber laminates, the fully armored vehicle is only 600 pounds heavier than its puny, soon to be bullet-riddled counterpart, so upgrades to the vehicle are kept to a minimum, mostly the braking and suspension systems.

Melanie Brown has joined the growing band of jittery U.S. celebrities who are driving armoured vehicles which can protect the personnel inside. Her giant, gas-guzzling sports utility vehicle or SUV will even give an electric shock – up to 240 volts worth of ‘non-lethal current’ – to car-jackers, paparazzi or anyone else foolish enough to grab the door handles in a bid to gain entry.
At the push of a button, it will belch out dense white smoke to help the driver evade any pursuing vehicle, and pump out small spikes to puncture their tyres.

Texas Armoring Corporation’s 38-year-old Leeds-born client also has an armoured Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz  S-Class on order.
Melanie Brown’s specially armoured and fully loaded seven-seater vehicle was delivered to her at her home in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, recently by Jason Forston, vice-president of the Texas Armoring Corporation in San Antonio.
Texas Armoring employs 50 people and customises about 200 vehicles a year, usually for heads of state, politicians, business executives, diplomats and royal families.

US President Barack Obama was once left red-faced after one of his armour-plated Cadillac limousine was brought to a halt as it left the U.S. Embassy in Dublin.
The gigantic armour-plated Cadillac General Motors limousine, with eight-inch thick steel on its door, didn’t even make it as far as the road outside the consulate. The Cadillac armour-plated limousine had to be abandoned after the collision in front of waving crowds en route to his ancestral home in County Offaly.
Mechanics rushed in to rescue the vehicle which was lodged helplessly on the ramp, while onlookers stood and watched – some of whom took video footage and photos.

Apart from military use, civilian vehicles may also be armoured, includes the gigantic armour-plated Cadillac General Motors vehicle of Obama. These vehicles include cars used by reporters, officials and others in conflict zones or where violent crime is common, and presidential limousines.
Armoured cars are also routinely used by security firms to carry money or valuables to reduce the risk of highway robbery or the hijacking of the cargo.
Military vehicles are commonly armoured (or armored) to withstand the impact of protecting the personnel inside. Such vehicles include tanks, aircraft, and ships.
