SET Armored Vehicles

Based on Mercedes Benz UNIMOG chassis



The SET vehicle’s occupants are protected within a cage-like armoring configuration where the vertical areas are made up of ballistic steel, aramid fibre panels and ballistic glass. The roof is protected by ballistic steel and the floor is protected by ballistic steel and aramid fibre blankets to enhance blast protection.

Other areas like the engine compartment, fenders and radiator are also protected by ballistic steel. All doors are overlapped with splash guards and spall protectors.

To cope with the increased weight due to the armoring, many components such as suspension, brakes, tires and hinges are upgraded.

Key ballistic material
opaque: 9.5 mm MARS 300 ballistic steel, hardness 575-635 BH backed by level IIIA Honeywell GS3000 Aramid laminated panels, fixed by Sika 221 with additional wrap of Twaron 750 with back straps under original upholstery
68 mm ballistic glass in ballistic steel window frame

Design and Method of Protection

The armoring components are integrated into the vehicle after the production process of the base vehicle by strapping it of its fit out. This is done without changing its exterior appearance. The safety cell, which includes the driver and passenger compartment is so designed that all gaps between the body and the doors are overlapping to prevent projectiles or splinters from entering the passenger compartment and the highest possible protection to the occupants against the effects of a bomb blast.

Armored Specifications

Ballistic Steel and Glass

Computer aided design drawings are translated into high precision cut steel plates to be incorporated into the vehicle’s cage armor.

High tensile strength bolts are fitted from the outside to minimize the risk of internal protrusion in the event of a blast. The ballistic steel window frame holds the transparent armor in place from both sides during positive and negative pressure waves.

Reducing the number of parts and utilizing these at maximum precision, enables the vehicle to perform how it does, even as a heavily armored vehicle.
