New Hybrid SlatFence RPG armour system displayed by Plasan at Eurosatory 2014
Plasan has presented for the first time at Eurosatory its new armour, designed to defeat RPG rockets. Hybrid SlatFence is a light passive system, weighing just 7 kg/sq.m., thus being ideal for all kinds of vehicles and especially for light platforms.

It is comprised of highly strong and elastic polymer horizontal blinds that have metallic “teeth” on the edges. These cause a short-circuit to the rocket, making it to explode only as a grenade and not as a rocket, compared to other systems in the market that try to catch the rocket between heavy steel bars.
