MKU has introduced its 6 th Generation armour technology - Polyshield V6 . The new technology reduces the weight of the armour of a helicopter by up to 40% and is almost 30% thinner than standard solutions. The reduced weight improves 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.
Helicopter armouring solutions manufactured using the 6 th Generation Polyshield V6 technology and conforming to Stanag 4569 level I weigh only 12 kg/sqm. “Since weight is one of the most important parameters controlling the performance of a helicopter, and the only one that can be controlled, this development is extremely significant,” said Neeraj Gupta, Managing Director of MKU.
