Armies in areas of conflict are daily confronted with ever changing threats. In order to protect both the crew and material, the armies use various protection systems. One of the core competencies of RUAG Land Systems is the development and production of protection systems for armoured vehicles. RUAG Land Systems offers modular and adaptable protection components against various threats.
RUAG Land Systems partially integrated the SidePRO-LASSO on the New Eagle. SidePRO-LASSO is an adaptive, passive and very lightweight side protection system against the widely-used anti-tank grenade RPG-7. The design of SidePRO-LASSO warrants optimal visibility for the crew and is easy and quickly replaced in the field.
The new clever curtain design allows rapid and uncomplicated access to material and service hatches. It goes without saying that all doors remain functional. The system can be mounted to any vehicle without or with only minor modifications. SidePRO-LASSO is used in Afghanistan by the Danish Army.
