The Russian company “Rostec” announced the development of special technologies that will help protect soldiers and military vehicles.
According to company sources, experts at Technodinamika, subsidiary of the company, have completed tests on a new type of reinforced ceramic, which will be used in armor for the protection of army personnel, armored vehicles and military vehicles, as well as in the protection of military ground, sea and air equipment. The sources indicated that the company’s experts were able to manufacture special panels that incorporate super-hard ceramic reinforced with aluminum oxide-, and these panels showed effective protective properties in military protection armour. Industrial production of these panels is expected to start soon.
According to the experts in “Rostec”, the new invention will contribute to the development of composite protection armor, durable and lightweight, capable of protecting personnel and military equipment from the dangers of bullets and armor-piercing projectiles. During the tests carried out on the aforementioned ceramic plates, they were exposed to 7.62 mm sniper rifle “Dragunov” bullets, and were also tested with the Russian military “Kirasa” armor, as tests showed that they have excellent robustness and high quality.
