The ERA is mainly used to increase the protection of main battle tank against modern ammunition. The Duplet protection system "Duplet" does not have analogues in the world. This armour can provide reliable protection of combat vehicles and stationary objects from the tandem cumulative munitions, armour-piercing sub-caliber projectiles and self-forming munitions of "striking-cannonbal” type.
 
The Duplet is a new development of Explosive Reactive armour using explosive materials sandwiched between simple steel plates, the Ukrainian engineers decided on using several linear shaped charges (LCS). The LCSs consist of either copper or aluminium and have a classic "half moon" shape. In the hollow center section, high explosives are inserted. 


Upon penetration, the explosive filler of the linear shaped charges will detonate and accelerate the liner material. This will form a shaped charge jet just like in a conventional shaped charge as used on HEAT warheads.

Per square meter Duplet ERA weighs between 400 and 515 kilograms. According to technical information provided by the Ukranian manufacturer, Duplet provides between 1.5 and 2.5 times as much protection as the "best world analogues" like Russian Kontakt-5 and Blazer.

The latest generation of Ukrainian-made main battle tank Oplot are fitted with the Duplet explosive reactive armour at the front of the turret and hull and also on each side of the hull.
