Composite Spall Liner solutions from FMS help reducing the weight of the vehicle without compromising its ballistic protection. With FMS solutions the ballistic steel, which is usually used as a vehicle carcass and at the same time as a strike face, may be reduced and partially replaced with a composite spall liner as a backing. The result is a significant reduction in the vehicle weight, manoeuvrability improvement and increase in its payload. Such spall liners may come in 3-D shapes tailored to the specific geometry of each vehicle, making it easy and straightforward for armour integrators to install spall liner solutions.
FMS spall liners were battle proven by saving many American lives in Afghanistan, protecting vehicles’ crews from projectiles and effectively stopping the IED’s energy.
