MKU introduces Polyshield V6 – 6th Generation ballistic protection technology

Added in: News

Military and Armed Forces Equipment Manufacturer, MKU, has introduced its 6th Generation ballistic protection technology, Polyshield V6 that will reduce the weight and thickness of armor solutions by a claimed 40%. This will improve the performance and mission capability of armoured helicopters. This technology has been developed after extensive R&D by MKU’s team of experts and engineers based in Germany and India.


Armor panels manufactured using 6th Generation Polyshield V6 technology conforming to NIJ III weigh only 14kg. MKU promises that the Polyshield V6 technology enables the pilot of a CH53 to carry at least three extra soldiers or 250 kg of ammunition and provisions or 320 litres of additional fuel which increases its endurance, flight radius and the rate of climb. The use of Polyshield V6 solutions increases the hovering ceiling of the helicopter which improves mission capability and reduces vulnerability.

Also on display would be the latest range of body armor made using the Gen 6 technology, which are lighter, more flexible and thinner. Weight and comfort are major areas of concern of the modern soldier that MKU is trying to address through these latest developments.

MKU will display solutions developed using the new technology at Aero India 2015, at Bangalore, India from 18-22 Feb 2015.
